The product itself is superb! The packaging from the seller left something to be desired, they used a brown paper over the the box instead of putting inside a cardboard box, luckily it arrived with no apparent damage to packaging.
I have a corner glass table and it fits on it just fine. I was concerned that when fitting the mount that it would mark the desk, it hasn't! The instructions that come with it are relatively poor, when mine arrived it had the locking pin the wrong way around for me to hang the mic from, easily corrected once I figured out how to do it.
I did however notice some marks on the actual stand itself but nothing which has made me think twice about sending this back.
4 stars due to packaging / instructions / marks
Excellent bit of kit and well worth the money!

It did not take my long to realise that picking the cheaper boom arm was the wrong thing to do. The other boom arm did work, it just didn't work well. If it sat in the one position it wasn't too bad, but as soon as you try and moved it the clamp would come out.
Thankfully, no such problem exists with the Rode PSA1. It works exactly like it should. The clamp feels solid and the mechanism allows you to swivel everything around 360 degrees with no problems.
Very happy with this purchase. I only wished I opted for this one a few years ago.
Since this information appeared to be available literally nowhere else that I could find, each arm from center pivot to center pivot is about 40cm long, meaning it's about 80cm long at full stretch. The fact that the mount is a little bit raised off the table means it's max vertical height will be a little bit higher than that though. This length means that you probably won't be able to reach it over your PC monitor, you'll have to keep it to the side.
I'm using this arm with the Rode NT Usb microphone along with the rode smr shockmount and it works well. I would suspect it would also work very nicely with many other shockmounts and microphones.Definitely consider this arm as its very well built..and you get what you pay for.
High build quality doesn't feel flimsy at all, very very easy to set up and absolutely feels high quality. I use this in conjunction with an Audio Technica AT2020 USB+ with a Neewer universal shock mount, and it works like a charm.
There are lots of Cheaper boom Arms you can buy but if you just take a look at some of the YouTube reviews comparing them you will see that the quality is night and day. Cheaper Balham Arms also seem to be a lot shorter in length when fully extended, this would have been a problem for me as I mount my arm behind my monitors so there has to be enough clearance for the arm to get over the top of my monitors.
This wasn't a problem with the PSA1, I have plenty of clearance and even enough to bring the mic closer or further away as I see fit.
However, I'm really not sure if this is worth the price. Depending on how you use it, you'd most likely be better off just using a regular microphone stand rather than dishing out so much money on this.

Very costly, but it works flawlessly, can't complain about it at all, I often don't even need to use a shock mount with this.Published 1 month ago by Aaron
Expensive for what it is, but you get what you pay for - its a long (far reaching), sturdy, nice looking microphone stand which should hold even the bulkiest of mics.Published 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
