Introducing the RAT microphone boom stand

The clean and modern design of the microphone boom stand from RAT is ideal for the studio and stage, especially when space isn't in your favour. Unlike any microphone stand on the market, RAT's unique base promotes a sturdy and space saving design.

The stand can be folded completely flat with ease making travelling with your RAT microphone boom stand a pleasure. Also, the small footprint of this stand takes up minimal space when packed away and wont clutter your storage spaces.

The vertical stem has a height range of 513mm - 1849mm making it easy to capture sounds from a variety of instruments and vocals. Fully adjustable without the need to meddle with screws or levers makes the RAT microphone boom stand truly versatile in all applications

Folds completely flat

The stand can be folded completely flat which is ideal for transporting and makes it easy to store.

Versatile boom arm

The fully adjustable boom arm allows for the microphone to be easily positioned for a variety of applications. The boom arms length, tilt and swivel can all be adjusted.

Impressive height adjustment range

The vertical stem has a variable height of 513mm - 1849mm. This range of height adjustment allows for the stand to be placed on the ground when there is limited space on a riser. It also allows for the stand to be used in recording booths.

Friction locks

Friction locks will automatically hold the mic at the desired height without the requirement of adjusting any thumb screws or levers. The anodised aluminium stem is very strong and rigid, ensuring that the stand will not sway.

Unique base design

The unique base is unlike any other microphone stand. The shape allows for the stand to be placed closely to the person or chair in front. It also can be used in recording booths when space is an issue. The die cast aluminium base adds enormous strength to the stand whilst maintaining a low weight. Rubber feet preserve the floor and the front foot ensures stability if the stand is knocked.
