On-Stage Stands Now Offering Quarter-Turn Round Base Mic Stand inWhite: MS7201QTR-WJanuary 23, 2014
Following the successful introduction of its MS7201QTR Quarter-Turn Round Base Microphone Stand at last year’s NAMM show, On-Stage-Stands has announced a white variation of the model at Winter NAMM ’14. The MS7201QTR-W utilizes the same quarter-turn technology found on the MS7625B and the MS7625PG hex base stands, dramatically reducing set-up and tear down times.
The round base stand has been an industry favorite for decades, and has remained virtually unchanged since it was first designed. Weighted bases are preferred over tripods because of their stability and small footprint, yet folding tripods are a more common sight in portable systems because they setup faster than their threaded counterparts. The introduction of On-Stage Stands MS7625B Hex-Base Quarter-Turn stand offered musicians their first chance to combine the setup ease of a tripod with all the advantages of a weighted base. The MS7201QTR models are a response to the call for this quarter-turn simplicity in a traditional round base.
The MS7201QTR-W has the look and functionality of the classic round base microphone stand with the instant threadless quarter-turn end. The threadless end mates with a unique J-slot in the familiar round base. In one swift motion, the user only needs to push down and rotate the shaft ¼-turn clockwise to lock, or push down and rotate ¼-turn counter-clockwise to remove. With the MS7201QTR-W, stripped threading is a thing of the past. What's more, the sheer convenience of the design means users who prefer weighted stands, yet opt for tripods to save setup/tear down time, can now setup a quality weighted base stands instantly.
The 10” round base is constructed from sand-cast steel for strength. Six rubber feet on the underside of the base keep the stand stable. As on its standard black counterpart, a diecast steel mid-point clutch allows easy height adjustments from 34” to 60”. The lower and upper shafts are also constructed of steel, 7/8” and 5/8” in diameter, respectively. Unique to the MS7201QTR-W, a soft cloth sleeve is included to protect the mic shaft in transport and storage. With a clean, scratch-resistant white finish, the MS7201QTR-W is ideal for houses of worship, fashion shows, and singers looking to add a little flare to the stage.
The MS7201QTR-W is priced at $49.99 (List), 29.95 (MAP). Be sure to visit Booth #5940 to check out this stylish new stand, along with all the other new-for-2014 offerings from On-Stage Stands.
