Measurement Mic stands

Hi I plan on getting a mic stand.
What do I ask for, is this correct.

Mic stand with extendable boom.

Thanks in advance

Yes, if you look in a catalog, you can see some simple mic stands, like this one.

Just be sure not to get a short one made for a desk.

the amazon one linked above is a good one and I have it myself. However, you will also need to buy an adaptor or 2 to attach any mic's to it. I have one so i can attach my mic for Audessey for my AVR (swivels around ) and I need a different one for my UMM-6 (good alternative to the UMIK-1 for running REW) which was just a screw on adapter as the mic has it's own holder that can be adjusted.

While not as flexible as a mic boom stand, you can also use a camera tripod for Audessey-type mics directly without requiring an adapter. The screw on most tripod mounts screws directly into the disc-type mics I've used. Even though I own several mic boom stands, this is what I do.

check what thread the boom mic stand you're going to purchase has and compare to the mic holder you have. For my UMM-6 i needed just a screw on on that goes from a larger to smaller threading. for my Audyssey mic i purchased an adapter so i could then swivel around the mic so i could get it to stand at 90*.

If need be where do I get adapters?
