Overview of TAMA MS456RBK- Tama Iron Works Tour Round Base Telescoping Boom Mic Stand
The Iron Works Tour Series MS456RBK telescoping microphone boom stand, with heavyweight round cast base, offers innovative features that surpass the status quo in terms of value, performance and functionality. No matter what the position or venue, the MS456RBK will make your setup easier, faster and more reliable than ever.
With its solid-core telescoping iron boom arm and removable counterweight, Iron Works boom stands safely and securely hold heavy microphones and accessories. Inside the boom arm, our rod stopper is made of POM, as opposed to nylon. This longer and more durable stopper ensures stability, and minimizes wobble. The detachable counterweight is key in terms of allowing the user to configure the stand with a left-handed or right-handed orientation, while still facing the T-handle in the desired direction.
Not only does the thumb nut's larger, sure-grip design allow greater leverage for faster, easier set-up and breakdown, its high quality zinc threads and walls are built to handle pressure for years to come. The tilter is one of the most crucial pivot points of any boom stand. TAMA's unique multi-steel-plate compression approach cinches and secures this critical axis with remarkable strength and assuredness.
Anyone who has used existing boom stands is familiar with the following potential mishap: Performer attempts a slight adjustment of mic stand by rotating the boom arm in the stand around few degrees?but with an undesired result?the twisting force is just enough to loosen the plastic ring inside the adjustment collar. Having lost its grip on the upper telescoping shaft, the boom arm, and microphone, sink downward, possibly even falling to the ground. No more. Finally, TAMA has addressed this common problem by utilizing a specially designed ring with an anchor at the bottom, which sits in the mic pipe's slot. The ring does not rotate, so adjustment collar's grip cannot fail.
Commonly, machined threads are the means of attaching a microphone stand to a cast base. But threads are easily damaged, and if a microphone stand is handled roughly, the threaded end of the lower pipe can be broken. TAMA's simple re-design eliminates this weak link. The TAMA Round Cast base has an unthreaded pocket that accepts the lower pipe. A T-bolt on the underside of the cast base then fixes the pipe to the base. Not only is this solution more durable, users will find set-up and breakdown to be easier too.
