|Compatibility with other quality manufacturers
|There are other quality industry
standard microphone stands out there in the market, and we respect their
legacy. We've been users of these products for many years ourselves on
Our bases are either directly compatible, such as with Atlas stand poles with 27 pitch threading; or are easily modified to be compatible, such as with K&M poles by adding our threaded stainless slugs.
Some performers like the convenience of one-handed
pistol-grip stand movement, so we have adapters for the pistol grip
stands made by Onstage to mate them with our bases.
K&M Booms can be upgraded with locking clutch discs to replace the problematic rubber discs, and a very strong lever lock.
Legacy AKG booms can also be upgraded.
Some inexpensive off-shore music store stands just won't work, specifically those with a large washer welded to the end of the pole in place of a proper jam nut. The large washer prevents the folding legs of Surefoot bases to operate properly.
The threading of these stands is inferior, done
with a roll process rather than die threading because the tubing is so
thin that it can't support die threading with proper thread depth.
