So one thing that I'd like to be able to do is have a mic stand on my desktop whose base is a few feet away from my sitting position with a boom that extends all the way toward me for singing and maybe another one for a stereo mic stand. This would be convenient for practicing and reviewing practice, or maybe for making youtube videos or something. I have a desktop mic stand that I bought at best buy's new music section (which I am actually liking, by the way), but the stand does not have a boom and this makes it hard to keep the stand out of the way. It gets in the way of the keyboard, music that I set in front of my, and the computer screen. I have a couple of floor stands that are tripod style, but the tripod is way too big, so I think that a heavy base would be better. So, my question is, is anyone out there using or aware of a stand that would do what I am looking for? I think that there must be a short stand with a long boom. I looked on the internet and tried a search here, but I couldn't find anything that looked like the base was heavy enough to actually hold a mic very far away. Maybe a stand that clips to the desk in some fashion?
