In the market for a single arm boom stand? Or maybe you're shopping for a double arm boom stand for a microscope with a bit more weight to it. There are several designs to choose from when purchasing your next boom stand.
- Many boom stands make use of a large, steady base. Designed to rest on your table or desk, they'll often have a single pole or arm for mounting your microscope.
- Most mounting points are static, although some may pivot as much as 30 degrees.
