What We Think
The Latch Lake micKing 3300 is the biggest, baddest commercially available mic stand on the market which isn't some sort of modified lighting stand. Standard to the micKing 3300 is the "Bigfoot" option for the micKing 2200; key for stability when dealing with very heavy microphones (AEA R44, A440, or KU4 ribbon microphones come to mind), or when going for extreme height when trying to capture a great ambient room sound. The ability of the stand and boom to go to a vertical height of 20-feet puts this stand head and shoulders above all other offerings short of the vintage Starbird stands of the bygone era. The interlocking bases offers a dual-functionality for both compact storage and enhanced stability when positioning multiple stands together. Add Latch Lake Xtra Boom Microphone Stand Boom Arms to the mast of the micKing stands to mount additional microphones off of the same assembly. Perfect for trying to keep the floor footprint to a minimum. Latch Lake micKing 3300 is certainly the king of microphone stands!

This Latch Lake micKing 3300 is taking over where the Atlas boom can no longer compete, and it's definitely not a lightweight. The clutches take a little getting used to, but really grab. It's a great stand and boom for the Neumann KU-100 or AEA R88mk2. The heavy package was very well packed for shipping.
This stand is not air-cushioned, so make sure you stay ahead of those heavy loads…a voice operated assistant comes in very handy, but is not included with the stand.
Great mic stands that allow tremendous heights. They are very stable and function like a precision-engineered machine. Next time I will puchase chrome stands because the black is easily scratched. However, the black stands tend to "disappear" in photos and videos.
