Reduces disruptive floor, stage or drum riser resonance and noise from entering mics.
The Primacoustic KickStand heavy microphone boom-arm isolator combines a massive stabilizing base with an isolation pad that eliminate resonance entering the microphone from stages, drum risers or studio floors.
A common problem with bass guitar and kick drum is resonance on a live stage. This is generally caused by low frequencies coupling with the wood flooring which will combine with the instrument at certain frequencies and generate unwanted peaks and valleys.
Another problem is the physical vibration from the kick drum pedal and low-end from the PA system that causes the drums to rattle and transmit through the drum riser. Microphones that are near these sources are prone to picking up these unwanted sounds. The KickStand helps eliminate the problem by decoupling the microphone stand from the stage while introducing a stabilizing mass to hold the microphone firmly in place.
The Primacoustic KickStand isolator's thick, high-density open cell acoustic foam covers the entire bottom plate. An innovative laser cut steel platform is wedg' shaped to eliminate standing waves while offering sufficient height to allow a boom-arm to be articulated into the ideal position. The isolation eliminates the resonance while the added mass stabilizes the microphone capsule for greater clarity and improved transient response.
Although originally developed for bass drum, the KickStand is very effective on electric guitar, bass and other instruments that generate low frequencies or may be subject to floor resonance from entering the mic via the microphone stand.
