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!
I purchased the AT2020USB+, a RØDE PSA1 Swivel Mount and Samson SP01 Shock Mount to work together in my endeavours for creating video tutorials.
The stand is sturdy and well sprung. Build quality in my opinion is very good and does not buckle or twist where not intended. Had been 'umming and 'ah-ing' about some of the £20 stands thinking that I could be making a mistake and to be honest - was glad I opted for this stand. I really didn't want to have to worry about it sagging or not supporting the mic or it falling into the desk. It is sturdy and comes with options to use with either a clamp or fitted mount (which requires a bit of DIY on your desk). The clamp section is free from the arm and can easily be attached to your desk and has a thin layer of foam to protect the desk top. The manual does make a point of not fitting it to a desk with a beveled edge or where the underside isn't square to the top face as it won't grip as intended. Once fitted, the arm slides into the top mounting hole, which is then the centre of rotation for the whole arm. The spring loaded arms are sturdy and support the mic and shock mount with ease - even fully extended. In fact, when you get the arm it is wrapped and warns about it springing open, which it will do! Once mounted with the Mic and Shock it is enough to balance it out and stays nicely put. A nice feature is that they also supply Rode branded velcro ties to hold your cable in place along the arm so you don't have to worry about tangled cables.Read more ›
I'm happy that I finally decided to purchase this though, works as intended with the Blue Yeti microphone and is very sturdy. I've had no issues with weight and the arm has a good spring system in it.
I thought mine was broken at first as the arm wouldn't stay at certain positions but it turns out that you need the Microphone attached for it to act as a counterweight.
I was not let down, the sturdy design leaves you feeling confident that your microphone is supported securely. The PSA1 comes with two mounting options, a clamp and a desk insert. Sadly the clamp was slightly to small to fit under my desk so I had to use the desk insert. It's not massive so you wont have to cut a huge hole in your desk and it comes with clear instructions telling you how to fit it and what size the hole needs to be.
The PSA1 also comes with a great feature where when you lift or lower the upper half of the arm the microphone remains at your original angle, meaning you can point your condenser mic and freely move the arm for different recording positions.
The arm also has a fantastic reach, one of my main concerns when fitting it was that i want to be able to sit back in my chair and still talk at a normal level. Thankfully the arm, when fitted can almost lay flat against the desk meaning no matter how far you are away from the mounting point you'll have plenty of reach.
It feels sturdy and secure, it's very well built, it grips my mic perfectly and looks very professional.
The clamp fits fine and I like the way it can swivel 360 degrees. It may not reach as far as some people might like but for general desk work it's more than adequate.
*UPDATE 23/05/2013: Two and a half years later and this boom arm is still going strong! Still very sturdy and hasn't loosened at all. It has gotten very squeaky but I may just have to oil it up a bit. I'd still definitely recommend it.*
