    Okay so I read up that the cheap $25 and lower microphone stand don't last for long (adjustment screws strip, boom sags). So are there any that don't have this problem under $40 per stand? Prefer closer to $30 per stand if that is possible. Let me know.
    Links and/or names are appreciated.

    Most cheap mic stands are crap, they do strip out the threads too easily and/or have cheap plastic knobs that break. They tip over too easily because they're too light to support a mic at the full length of the boom. And worse yet, they resonate vibrations from the stage up the lightweight tubing into the mic.

    The best I've seen below $50 is the JamStand JS-MCFB100 (Ultimate Support's econo-line) at $30. They're heavy enough, have a decent clutch, and a 3-yr warranty from a solid company.

    My two cents.

    Thanks for the recommendation dvdhawk.
    Saves money and hassle of buying low quality mic stands that would need to be replaced anyways.
