The micKing 1100 Straight is built to provide pro functionality in a portable package. Continuing with the use of innovative lever lock systems, this stand maintains the micKing's stellar strength reputation. For portability we've designed a new patent pending weighted 10 lb Symmetric Torque Tripod Base that ensures tripod legs never go bad or droop while tilted. To boost performance we've included a precision ram formed mounting point reducing weight where it counts. The MK1100ST shines extremely well for venues, touring, and in-studio as a vocal mic, or a general room mic.
