I was waiting to get the RODE PSA1 Mic Arm due to it being out of stock for a few months. When it was back in stock, I planned to get it immediately, but then saw this new Blue Compass Arm had been released. They were the same price and after watching some reviews, I decided to give this one a try instead.
This stand is simply not easy to use. It is stiff, the thumbscrews at the joints don't do a good job of holding the arm in the position you want it, it is relatively short (a problem that is amplified by its lack of flexibility) and after a month of use it stopped being able to support the weight of my microphone (an Audio Technica AT2020 XLR). I honestly had a better experience using my much cheaper Neewer Mic Arm.
The only positives I can give this are that it feels really high quality and I like the clips it has to hold the microphone cable in place. It's a really neat and stylish mic arm, but functionality is more important than aesthetics to me.
I eventually bought the RODE PSA1 to replace it and the experience has been so much better - it's essentially a more premium Neewer Mic Arm which is pretty much all I wanted.
I'd recommend to just get the RODE over this one since they are the same price.
Edit: Just noticed that the price has jumped from £60 to £100. Now it is absolutely not worth getting. Avoid this one!
I bought this as a replacement for my Rode Arm which is a bit ugly and loud with the spring noises.
This arm claims to be very flexible and toolless. However, I've found that the hand tightening screws completely fail to keep the arm in place. This is especially true for lighter microphones- the arm always tends to rise up no matter how hard you tighten the middle joint.
The hidden screw at the bottom doesn't do much to alleviate the issue, unfortunately. Does it look better than the Rode? Yes! Does it work better- unfortunately no- I find this design to be much more cumbersome. And with a good shock mount on the Rode the results are great.
I just couldn’t get this to stay in place after tightening, always springs back a few inches. Also wanted to mount behind my monitor so the mic would come over my head, not possible. Not that impressed so have returned it.
I was very excited to get this great-looking boom arm to go with my Blue Yeti. You'd think it would just work out-of-the-box with the Yeti, but what wasn't my experience. The manual tells you that you will screw in your mic (I do not have the shock mount -- it's not necessary to use this) and to "Adjust Compass so that it makes a 90-degree angle at the middle pivot point". This proved to be impossible, the spring of the arm is just too strong and it always went upwards. There is an important screw underneath the to adjust the tension of the arm, and many people online do not know that this setting exists, but I read the manual and labels. My screw was totally unscrewed already when it came and I could do nothing with it to loosen the tension. Maybe mine was broken, but I do not trust this design and I've returned it.
Schade, der Boom Arm gefällt mir vom Design her wirklich gut, aber für mich ist er eine Fehlkonstruktion. Das mittlere Gelenk hat viel zu viel Spannung und egal wie sehr ich mich bemühe, es war für mich nicht möglich ihn passend einzustellen. Angeblich kommt er voreingestellt für ein Blue Yeti. Ich habe ein Blue Yeti X, das nochmal schwerer ist und der Boom Arm war wirklich nicht zu gebrauchen. Auch mit Anleitung und YouTube Tutorials habe ich es nicht hinbekommen, dass der Boom Arm vernünftig eingestellt ist. Auf dem mittleren Gelenk war immer viel zu viel Spannung. Wer es schafft ihn einzustellen, bekommt einen stylischer Boom Arm. Für die Preisklasse erwarte ich da aber mehr Komfort und Einfachheit. Bevor ich eines der Gelenke zerstöre (die wegen des Plastiks nicht wirklich haltbar wirken) geht er deshalb zurück und ich werde wohl doch zum PSA1 von Rode greifen. Schade, der ist einfach nicht so chick wie der Compass.
This boom arm seemed to have everything I wanted. But appearances and reality are very different. I attached my Shure SM7B to it and the arm wouldn't hold it up. I tightened the connectors but nothing really changed. There were a couple of spots within the arm's range where it did hold the mic up, but over time it sagged. Eventually, I tightened it so much that the tightening knob just came right off. I returned this arm and bought one from Rode at the same price point. It works brilliantly at every millimeter in its entire range of motion and never sags. Save yourself time and frustration and avoid this product.
Después de montarlo sinceramente los frenos por llamarlo de alguna manera los fijadores que se tienen que apretar llegando hacer tanta fuerza que hasta daño te puedes hacer sin llegar a fijar realmente las articulaciones por el precio que tiene me lo esperaba 100 veces mejor ... por eso le pongo dos estrellas.
Well built and great quality material.... however I think the price point is way high for what it’s user friendliness. I would suggest you are better off going with a generic boom arm with compatible Blue Yeti connection.
The biggest frustration is that the arm has an inconsistent stiffness and rigidity in the springs at either joint. It is difficult to tweak and calibrate the spring tension to work easily and efficiently. One join remains stiff while the other is too relaxed - I don’t know maybe I’m missing something and it’s just me?
It’s like they spend all their time designing the look but completely omitted user friendly operation and logistics.
If it had cost $50-70 I might have a different opinion - but this arm cost the same as the microphone did!! WTF?
I keep seeing that it's good for "heavy" microphones, so I got a samson g-track pro to put on it and it kept drooping so I kept tightening it, then the tightening point on the base of the stand and it just broke off.
The boom doesn't stay where you put it no matter how tight you screw the joints. It will stay close to 90 degrees but no lower, the springs just push it back up. Definitely not worth 150$, maybe 60-80.
