OK, yes, I admit I get a kick out of these sort of orders. It confirms that I made a product that artists like.
These custom mic stands are something I didn't want to develop. One persistent rock band member kept telling me, about the band Garbage lead singer who had one. When I looked, it was a thicker rod than I had used in my experiments in the past. Now I knew it was a viable product to research.
2 years and 40 stands later, they have been well received. Many different genres are using them. Karaoke, Country, Rock, Creole, Classical, it is amazing.
The height is not adjustable, the customer requests what height they want. Most are about 60" high. Because of that length, international shipping is about $400 for a $260 stand. Most that sell are clear stands with clear base, not too many black bases, and no aqua rod stands.

Breakage is minimal. Only about 3 have been reported as broken in use. They do get thrashed a lot during gigs and performances. I make it a point of leaving the communicating door open, about any future product breaks. Ne-Yo requested a thinner rod, so he could do his signature James Brown moves, with less weight.
