Base 4 Stands are hand built, custom made modular support systems for microphones that can replace multiple traditional stands with one unit. Their patented, four-legged design with large rubber feet provides the balance and stability needed to hold heavy microphones without the need for sandbags and counterweights.
While each stand is designed with specific applications in mind, none are limited to any single scenario. Mic-arms are interchangeable between the various models, but extensive testing is done to arrive at the perfect combination of stand height to arm-length ratio, base weight, and footprint – as well as microphone weight considerations.
Base 4 Stands immediately save space on the studio floor once a second mic arm is in use. For every mic arm you attach, one conventional mic stand can be eliminated. Just one of the stands for drums can replace up to five individual stands. With all three full drum stands combined you can replace up to thirteen stands around large drum kits.

Custom options include, but are not limited to, tailored-to-fit vocal and horn stands, detail specific configurations for any application, ceiling mounted overhead and room mic’ing installations, custom length Stub Mounts for auxiliary items such as camera, tablet and phone holders. Custom colors are also available for Stretch, Solo, Sidekick and Shorty. Customization requests should be made through our Support page.
Base 4 Stands are made with industrial strength, lightweight aluminum tubes and die-cast aluminum connectors. Large levers and thumb screws aid in making precise and “positive-locking” adjustments. The connectors require little force to secure the mic arm in position and, once “locked,” will prevent the arm from dropping the instant you let go – and will not drop over time.
All Base 4 Stands come with the patent pending Base 4 Stands™ Jam Nut℗, designed to make the final positioning of a microphone easy and pain-free. At 5mm thick, with a 34mm OD made of aluminum, the alternating knurled and scalloped features provide grip and comfort for ease of use.
