Boom Stand

Boom Stand Definition - What is a Boom Stand?

A boom stand is a type of stand for hands free mounting of microphones or other similar devices. Unlike a traditional microphone stand, which consists of a heavy base and a straight pole to mount the mic atop, a boom mic stand will have an extendable arm which reaches out from the top of the stand, allowing the stand to be farther away from the person using it. This is useful for adjusting the microphone stand to reach around a large piece of equipment, or a musical instrument, such as reaching across a piano to the pianist's mouth without being in between the pianist and the piano.
