This wiki has been updated 24 times since it was first published in October of 2018. Whether you need to amplify a singer’s voice for a live performance or comfortably position a microphone for a podcast or a radio broadcast, one of these stands will serve as a useful piece of equipment. We’ve included full-size models with features like tripod bases and boom attachments as well as miniature desktop stands for recording audio in a small studio space or in your home.

Editor's Notes

October 31, 2018:

Purposely included a mix of sizes and styles, some of which include a boom arm and some that do not. Noted that the InnoGear Suspension actually mounts to a table or similar surface with a clamp, which some potential buyers may find useful. Reports indicate that many users appreciate the solid round base of the Gator GFW versus a standard three-legged tripod base.
