The 12 in. On-Stage Stands MS8412 offers a new choice in straight stands…the Rocker-Lug. The Rocker-Lug allows the entire mic shaft to tilt up to 15-degrees off of the base vertical, so there is no need for a boom arm in many applications. Other pro-level features include a 10-pound 12 in. base and a heavy-duty, over-sized, solid zinc, mid-point clutch. The low-profile 12 in. base sports six rubber feet for stability and noise reduction. And because this stand is made for the working musician, shaft/base connection is made via a solid steel lug with coarse M20 threading. This coarse threading provides an excellent combination of fast assembly and secure connection, while extending thread wear far beyond fine-thread designs.
