What We Think
For over 60 years, Konig & Meyer (K&M) has blazed a trail with long-lasting, professional-grade products that K&M owners and users have come to rely on and love.
It's not an uncommon phenomenon to purchase a budget priced mic stand, thinking, "I don't need to get fancy here; it's just a mic stand. How important can this be?" Yet - we also know the symptoms of having bought that budget mic stand: bent tubing, stripped-out fasteners, stripped-out screw threads, floppy legs, broken clutches, knobs that don't tighten... and the list goes on. Budget stands can really be ready for the trash can in hardly any time at all. Did you save all that much when you're now without a stand?
If there is one thing that I've come to know about gear, it's that there is a BALANCE when it comes to gear; what you spend vs what you get back. If you're planning to use your stands day in and day out, or if you simply don't want to have to worry about whether a stand is going to crap out on you, spending a little extra to get a whole lot more peace-of-mind is a great investment. K&M represents the best of these worlds where for a little more, you get a serious increase in long-term performance - and a 5 Year Warranty.
If you're a professional and must rely on your gear to work without exception, then there is no other choice. K&M stands always deliver on demand. Case in point - a large moose of a man can stand on the legs of a tripod K&M stand and not break it. In fact, the legs don't even BEND. They extend outward and then retract back to their original position after the weight is released.
Should any of these parts wear out, Konig & Meyer maintains a stock of replacement parts for 10 years after the discontinuation of a product. The tubing will all stay good, and you can make your Konig & Meyer stand function like-new again with some new parts.Metal on metal contact of these moving parts is eliminated by design, and high-density nylon barriers are put in place where other brands will just push metal into metal and pretty much hope for the best as the stand destroys itself each time it is used.
As a company, Konig & Meyer's reputation and commitment to quality and green manufacturing practices should be the envy of any manufacturer. Their unlimited commitment to quality and environment in the production process translates into the most effective use of raw materials, conservation of energy, greater use of renewable energies, recycling of parts and products at the end of their life, avoidance of pollutants in production, reduction of CO2 emissions, reduction of water consumption and treatment of waste water used in the production process to produce potable quality. Since 1979 Konig & Meyer has reduced their water consumption in the manufacturing process by 94 percent.
In an industry where all other such products' production has shifted to China where environmental impact is barely regarded, Konig & Meyer are still made in Germany and their products offer the conscientious buyer a clear choice that will save them money over the long haul without having to replace stands every couple of months. Reducing unnecessary manufacturing is also green! Build it right the first time!
Save up your pennies and go for the good stuff. Konig & Meyer (K&M) stands will be an investment that you'll be glad that you made. It's peace of mind that reduces frustration, saves potential losses or damage to expensive microphones, and even prevents the loss of future work or conflict with a client (imagine the clutch of your cheap-stand failing during a live taping in front of an audience - that's a pretty indefensible position to be in). When it absolutely must work right the first time, choose Konig & Meyer (K&M) stands.
