I have been putting my Rode K2 on a . I noticed on another thread someone calling the K2 a "boat anchor" and I quite agree. The A50 does a great job keeping the K2 nice and stable, but it takes up a lot of real estate in my small studio. Does anyone have a suggestion for a stand with a smaller footprint that's still pretty stable. Anyone who wants to make more general comments about mic stands is welcome to do so. I use two A50s for drum overheads, what are you guys using for that?
