Mic stand, that is! Yeah, I know.."Mic stand? Big deal!" But what's cool about this one is that it came from T-Bone Burnett's studio! 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?
