The K&M 260/1 Microphone Stand does a great job of filtering noise, thanks to its anti-vibration rubber insert. Its round cast-iron base provides remarkable stability. At Sweetwater, we don't sweat putting our high-end mics on the 260/1 - it's stable enough to handle them. A simple clutch makes height adjustment as easy as pie. The K&M 260/1 is an excellent microphone stand.
