By PSW Staff • January 12, 2009 One of the new models in the Ultimate Support Tour Series of mic stands Ultimate Support has introduced three new series of microphone stands (called the “Mic Stand Series”) for touring, live and pro players. All will be on display at the company’s booth (#6690, Hall A) at Winter NAMM ‘09 in Anaheim. New Tour Series stands are designed for professionals, rental facilities, touring and backline companies, and are the most heavy-duty, road-worthy mic stands available in Ultimate’s line-up. Featuring oversized steel tubing (28mm) and weighted tripod stands, the upper-shaft has tapered threads making it interchangeable with other stand components. Tour Series stands also offer Ultimate Support’s patented Quarter Turn Clutch, a fast, secure and reliable clutch, as well as the Quick Attach Base feature with heavy-duty threads to prevent stripping. Available models: Tour Short, Tour Tall, Tour-MT Standard (weighted base), Tour-MT, Tour-RB (round weighted base, Tour-LT (large weighted base), and Tour-LT Tall. The Pro Series is a pro-quality line, with oversized steel tubing (25mm), heavy wall cast bases, plus Ultimate’s patented Quarter Turn Overmolded Clutch, offering a fast, secure and reliable clutch that locks up fast and smooth – and now, also with dual overmolding for a secure grip. Pro Series stands also feature Ultimate’s Heavy Duty Tripod Base with stronger legs, secure lock, and oversized foot caps that won’t fall off. Most models are available in Ultimate’s patented stackable base. Available models: Pro Tripod Base, Pro-Short, Pro-ST Standard (weighted base), Pro-SB (stackable base). The Live Series is designed for lead singers, outfitted with Ultimate Support’s patented one-hand clutch mechanism that allows a mic to be raised or lowered with just a hand squeeze. Live Series clutches are field-adjustable, with tension adjustable with the turn of a screw. Available models: MCO-80 Tripod, MCO-85-ST (weighted base), MCO-89-SB (stackable base).
