Takeaway: Quick and simple setup, supportive and durable, easy to use and fits Yeti mics.

You’ll receive a pop filter, the boom arm, table clamp, mic holder, four Velcro cable ties, a 5/8” - 3/8” inch adapter for shock mounts, a foam wind screen, and a brief instruction manual. The manual is illustrated and putting together the boom only takes a few minutes. You’ll start with the table clamp which has a pentangular weighted base and a screw down grip plate to attach it to a desk or table. Slide the clamp onto the edge of your table until it sits flush, then tighten the screw plate until the base is fixed and snug. The hook behind the screw-down clamp also doubles as a convenient headphone hanger.

Next, place the black stem of the boom arm into the base. It should swivel 360° freely. If you’ll be using a standard microphone, screw on the plastic mic holder onto the silver post. The mic holder expands a little and can accommodate microphone handles up to 1-1/4” in diameter. Attach the pop filter to the boom arm near the mic and position the filter a few inches between away from the mic and performer. You can neatly attach the cales to the boom arm using the included Velcro cable management straps. This will allow you to more freely move and swivel the boom arm without interference.

When fully assembled, the boom arm can be raised up to 30” above the tabletop, but can operate at heights lower than that and as low as 6” above the tabletop, for times when you may be seated. As well, the angle of the microphone can be adjusted for overhead, top or side address depending on your mic pickup and setup needs.

This boom stand is also compatible with the Bluet Yeti microphone and new Logitech Blue Yeti X. For these you’ll need to remove the plastic mic holder and take the Yeti mic off its stand. On the bottom of the mic, attach the 5/8” to 3/8” adapter and then thread it onto the silver post. You can optionally use the included foam wind screen on the mic before adding the pop filter to the stand. The process is similar for the original Blue Yeti.

Using this boom arm helps to minimize shock-related noise and vibrations that would normally transfer through a tabletop stand from reaching your microphone, like keyboard typing, mousing clicks, and taps of thumps on your desk. It also frees up some desk space, allows you to quickly adjust the height and positioning of the mic, and lets you swivel it out of the way when not in use. Overall, the boom arm is easy to set up, stable, and is able to support the Yeti microphones and rigs up to 4 lbs without any issues.
