    Mic stand, that is!

    Yeah, I know.."Mic stand? Big deal!" :wtf:

    But what's cool about this one is that it came from T-Bone Burnett's studio! :cool:

    I usually don't have any interest in "celeb owned" gear, I think for the most part it's overpriced nonsense. But I needed a second boom stand, and this one didn't cost any more $$ than one I would have bought in the local music store!

    It's in great shape, but has obviously seen a lot of use..It IS kinda cool to wonder who might have used it..Allison Krause, Robert Plant maybe?

    @DaDoc : no offense, but I, too, was thinking something else when you wrote "new MS day".

    I was thinking "New Mega Sh*t day".

    Even though we don't talk 'bout it much around these part, y'all have those MEGA SH*T days goin' on (ladies be hitting it, too, though they talk 'bout it even less). Just people being natural, I guess.

    It be like:


    Happy [​IMG]day!

    These are great at saving space, fast consistent mic placement. I have 4 and they are worth it:

    Very cool! :cool:

    I've got to get my ass in gear and figure out how to post pics on here..I tried once before using photobucket and it wouldn't work.

    No problem..I figured when I posted this thread someone would "shit" on it! :lol:

    Had I been a curious and uninformed individual and clicked on a thread like this I would probably have been thinking "new Marshall Stack day" or maybe "new Marantz Stereo day, or something similar..:scratch:

    But I seriously doubt I would have been thinking of doo-doo..Even if I had been in the Backstage, where doo-doo sometimes DOES become a topic of conversation! :rofl:

    It's always a good thing to bear in mind that presumption is the mother of misunderstanding..:rolleyes:

    Thank you for your patience with my sad attempt at scatological humor.

    I do hope that your new mic stand serves you well. A mic stand once owned by T-Bone Burnett is nothing to sh*t on; I love his work on the HBO series True Detective, Season #1.

    I did not know he worked on that..I'm more familiar with the work he did on stuff like the Robert Plant/Allison Krauss album "Raising Sand".

    My wife got us tickets to the tour they did to support that album..And T-Bone was the guitarist in their back-up band.

    What a great show! And they did "The Battle Of Evermore" together, which I was REALLY hoping they would do! Allison nailed sandy Denny's vocal parts awesomely. And T-Bone played only one guitar through the whole show, the vintage Harmony electric that he's famous for using..He got a great tone with that and a vintage tweed combo amp.
