The micKing 3300 is the original micKing boom stand featuring the world's strongest boom clutch in its class, unique patented base, Spin Grip Mic Mount and movable counterweight.
The micKing 3300 covers the entire spectrum of mic applications, shining primarily in the choral and orchestral world which often necessitate long reach both horizontally and vertically. With a mast at 10 feet and a boom at 10 feet as well, they are capable of combining to an impressive 20 foot height in its vertical configuration. Yet with these long lengths both the boom and mast are capable of compacting down to nearly 3 feet! The 3300 isn't for everyone, but when your need long-reach stability in a small footprint, it is exactly what you've been searching for.
Lever Lock System
Quick and simple adjustments throughout the entire stand. These locks ensure, hands down, the strongest hold possible with the least amount of frustration. You can even customize their tension to your precise needs!
Why the World's Strongest
Our patented boom clutch features nearly 16 square inches of clamp-able surface area. That's more than any other mic stand on the market! This impressive surface area provides the maximum coefficient of friction for that unstoppable hold that micKing booms are so well known for.
Highly Efficient Footprint
Our unique patented bases don't only have the most efficient placement of weight; they can be positioned within each other for great space saving storage.
Our ultra flexible counter weight system can be positioned anywhere on the boom. They can even be removed when not necessary.
We've thought all the way down to the finest detail. Every adjustment point on the stands feature our patented cable wedges, enabling very clean cable management.
All of our products are assembled right here in St. Paul, Minnesota. Our 20,000+ square foot production facility is as green as it gets, featuring geothermal heating and cooling (right from Latch lake!), green powder coating, vegetable machining oil and ultra efficient florescent lighting throughout. Stop in and meet the Latch Lake family anytime!
I cannot find anything to discount the Latch Lake design, build, or fit and finish of the Mic King. I just used the 3300 (black, low vis) at a choral session last night and won't leave home without it from now on! I hung an AEA R88 and a pair of schoeps in wide NOS -- on one stand! This allowed a long dreamed placement not possible without flying rigging lines and hangers. Getting my mics right where I want them without the conductor seeing the stand is a thing of beauty. I ordered a 24" Xtra Boom as well and will be using it in my drum overhead duties at home.
Many uses, one stand to rule them all. I Think I will pick up a smaller one (2200) in the future, as the full extension doesn't get used in anything other than large studios (scoring stages) and concert halls. But for that purpose, none other compare.
Big thanks to Mario for his stellar service, as always!
