Choir Microphone Stands
These mic stands are designed to get a microphone up to significant height, with a counterweighted boom that gives great reach.
Getting microphones up high gives you a much more even blend of voices, which is very valuable for choral concerts or orchestral use. The stands are also very useful for getting microphones into awkward or out of the way places. They've been used in the past to record a pipe organ, for instance.
Despite their impressive size and reach, the stands fold down well and will easily fit into a standard car.
