Manley Starbird Studio Microphone Stand
The world's largest in-production precision microphone boom stand. Fully manufactured in our own CNC machine shop. A labor of love...
We purchased the seminal design by George Starbird plus the associated tooling and made some important refinements: a heavier, wider-spread base which dismantles conveniently for transportation, plus a variable-weight counterbalance which can be filled as needed with sand or lead-shot enabling the Starbird® to be used with very heavy older ribbon microphones or cameras.
Vertical rise and fall is managed by air-damped compression valves making the boom gentle for precious microphones. Silent mobility is provided by the heavy duty solid rubber wheeled Darnell casters.
The problem with these Starbird booms is that they last forever! Thousands have been manufactured since World War II and most of them are still in use in every major music and film scoring stage.
