Why do I need a microphone stand?

A microphone stand is an incredibly useful and versatile piece of gear to have. If you own a microphone or plan on using one eventually, you’re going to need one. A mic stand will keep your microphone firmly in place at a height and position (if using a boom stand) of your choosing. They’re essential for live performances and recording. It's worth investing in a high-quality mic stand, especially if you’re attaching an expensive microphone to it, because they’re more robust and last longer.

Why do I need speaker stands?

Speaker stands are well worth owning if you’re recording with studio monitors, whether that’s in a bedroom studio or a professional one.

  • Round Base Stand - A round base stand (also known as a straight stand) is similar to a tripod stand but has a circular, weighted base instead of three feet. These stands are ideal for vocalists as you’re less likely to trip over the base whilst performing.
