Keeping the Boom from going Bust Mic booms are a great piece of gear--they put the mic right where you want it. Except for one annoying problem: Droopy Boom Syndrome. Not only is there never a good time for it, but it can be dangerous to expensive mics, which aren't designed for smashing onto the floor. Solution: Adding a counterweight or a sandbag. But they're heavy to drag around. Here's something that's lightweight, solves the problem and does it fast. It's called a "one-minute" solution. But after looking over the wordless instruction manual, I had this strapped on and Velcro-ed into position in less than a minute. Bottom line: It works, it's fast and the price is right.

It Just Works H2 has done it again - this time his very own patented, must-have studio accessory, the Adjustable Boom Stop. The ABS allows me to nail my mic/VO settings and saves me from having to think about 'boom creep' during long sessions. It's thoughtful, well-designed, and easy to use. I also VO coach in my studio, so I know that once I place talent in front of a mic, that mic's going to stay put - and the markable strap let's me nail individual mic settings per talent - a great time-saver. If you use a boom, get the ABS - no brainer. Thanks, Harlan - you always make my job easier!

They say big things come in small packages --the adjustable boom stop is one of those things that definitely make this statement ring true. This innovative, high-quality strap quickly stabilizes your mic stand so that you no longer have to worry about your mic dropping or your boom arm swaying. The ABS is an invaluable solution to an all too common problem. Just "set it and forget it" - Every boom arm should have one!
Thank you Harlan for another great product!
...today's boom arm mic stands use a ten cent washer to keep the boom from falling, inevitably they fail and many a mic is ruined

Why hasn't someone thought of this before? I just installed my new ABS adjustable boom stop. When I was outfitting my home recording space, it was obvious that my trusty old Atlas boom mic stands were scaled for a much larger space, so I replaced them with smaller stands. I quickly discovered that these mini-stands were not really designed for the weight of the vintage and newer VO: microphones I depend on. So, for years I've been cranking down on the boom lock and hanging various ugly, makeshift weights on the back of the boom to counteract the slow creep of the ineffective lock. Along comes your ABS and the problem is solved. Easily adjustable. Repeatable settings. Just a great, great product for studios, and I can only imagine how useful the ABS would be for live shows. I wish I'd had this product, when I was mixing music in commercial studios. It would have made setting up for dense band set-ups so much easier. Keep the innovations coming.
