This stand includes nearly everything you need for starting a studio project. At its core is a telescoping vertical shaft and an extra long telescoping boom with a solid steel counterweight. The 40-teeth boom clutch means non-slip locking power. Added to the end of the boom is a Posi-Lok mini-boom arm. The four locking folding legs and attached locking casters make for a remarkably stable foundation. The entire stand folds for travel. This studio boom can be taken anywhere.
