2.0 out of 5 stars Not strong enough as standard, 4 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BrainyDeal Broadcasting Studio Microphone Suspension Boom Scissor Arm stand with Shock Mount (Electronics)
I use this boom to support a Samson C01 mic. It works fine now but out of the box it simply wouldn't support the weight of what is a pretty standard microphone. When trying to tighten the bolts to stop the arm slowly descending out of position (due to weak springs), one of them snapped off due to them being of very poor quality. I was forced to buy some proper bolts and replace them, after which it's been fine. It's now a pretty good boom which I use a lot, but you need to be prepared to fix it first... Spend some money and get a better one which works without DIY, is my advice.

EricD says:
Røde PSA1 Swivel Mount Studio Microphone Boom Arm is an Australian company (but could still be Chinese-made).
for "microphones weighing between 700g (1.5lb) and 1.1kg (2.4lb) when combined with shock mount"

He bought bolts.

I did - sorry Mr. Herbert -I try to reply to these always but for some reason I missed this. And yes, EricD is right - just plain old bolts of the same diameter as the standard but slightly longer and with nylon locknuts. couple of quid from a hardware store.
