Comments about K&M Telescopic Boom Arm - 2-Piece:
The best thing I can say about this particular boom arm, which is the telescoping version, is that it is the same as an older one I bought under the AKG label (presumably through a 'branding' deal). I like that consistency, that a product is great as it is and doesn't need to be "new and improved", which usually means they cheapened the product and changed the design, when it is perfect as it is.
It may seem a bit pricey, but as I can attest, the build quality is excellent and durability is unquestionable. My old AKG branded boom arm is twenty years old and still does what it is supposed to do as well as the day I acquired it.
Why only 8 stars? Well, I rarely give anything a 10. The one niggling point would be the threading on the boom anchor to the mic stand, and the threading to the mic clip. This has always been a weak element to all boom and clip attach points. If you aren't careful, you will strip them. I've always managed to be careful and not allow stripping. But unless you are a studio rat or live sound tech and really understand this, you can ruin your boom arms. (Why the mic stands seem to suffer less damage from improper threading of booms and clips, I have no idea.) It would be nice to see someone redesign these a little better.
