The art of choosing a microphone stand is more delicate than you could imagine. It does not matter if you are a beginner, amateur or professional – if you are a musician, broadcaster or podcaster you have to appreciate your personal equipment for making music as much as you appreciate music and recording you make. Now try to imagine a ridiculous situation which happens quite often with those who do not take this piece of advice seriously: you have a condenser microphone, the best one you have ever had, which costs 1000$. It is mounted on a Chinese cheap low-quality microphone stand for 20$… and then the stand falls down. You must have an extremely quick reaction to catch the microphone before it kisses the floor and goes out of order. This one of the most common situations which happens when you neglect the quality of a microphone stand and do not want to “overpay”.

If you took into consideration all described above and are willing to keep on reading this Top 25 Best Microphone Scissor Boom Arm Stands because you do not want anything like to happen, if you want to create a comfortable environment for work where at least a microphone stand is not a thing to worry about, then you need to learn some fundamental information about microphone stands.

There are different types, or designs, of microphone stands which we want to introduce to you and describe in a nutshell because this Top 25 Best Microphone Scissor Boom Arm Stands comprises some stands which are not scissor ones (25-20 positions).

 

6 designs of microphone stands:

Tripod microphone stands have the simplest design for everyday use. They are easy to set up, rather lightweight. Three legs contribute much to no falling, so to say they can be “trusted” to hold expensive microphones.

Tripod boom microphone stands are bigger than common tripod microphone stands. As a result, they are heavier, but are capable of secure holding of heavy microphones.

Desktop microphone stands are most suitable for recording podcasts, home studios and shooting videos with good sound for YouTube.

Round base microphone stands are stands with round base which takes less place than tripod microphone stands. They are suitable for on-stage performances.

Low profile microphone stands are usually used for recording bass drums and guitar riffs.

Overhead microphone stands are the largest and tallest of all. They are used as top microphones to record from above the scene of action.

 

Scissor microphone stands have some characteristics which distinguish them from all of the types of microphone stands described above. Let us start from the base because it is one of the most important parts of scissor microphone stands. Scissor microphone stands are equipped with table mounting clamp. Usually it is a C-clamp which is easy to use and which provides sturdy holding of a microphone stand. Choosing a stand with C-clamp, be sure that a manufacturer gives information about width of a flat surface it can capture. Another optional information about table mounting clamps is padding. If you want to make sure that it will not leave scratches on your table, it must have soft padding. Some microphone scissor stands come with another type of mounting, desk-insert. The name speaks for itself.

Another important information about microphone scissor stands is that mounting is provided by screwing a microphone or microphone clip. So, it is important to check out what type of screw a scissor stand has. The standard one is 5/8” – 27 threading screw, some models have 3/8”. Make sure that your microphone and a microphone stand you have chosen are compatible. Otherwise, you will have to spend some more money and purchase adapters.

 

Now let us talk about prices. Probably, the following information may be disappointing for you. Nevertheless, this is what you have to know before purchasing a mic stand.
