I'm in the market for a high quality mic stand that will hold heavy expensive mics and suspend them over a drumkit without toppling over. Something heavy duty that won't strip threads, crack and fall apart easily. The only two contenders seem to be the: - Manley Starbird - Atlas SB-36W Has anyone had any experience with either that they can share? The Manley is considerably more expensive so does the cost justify the quality? I've already done a search and read previous posts but am still looking for more feedback before making a purchase as they are not accessible to compare. Fortunately I'm relying on your help to decide. Thank you.
