The On-Stage MS7201QTR has the look and functionality of the classic round base microphone stand with the instant thread-less quarter-turn end. The threadless end mates with a unique J-slot in the familiar round base of the MS7201QTR. In one swift motion, the user only needs to push down and rotate the shaft.The round base stand has been an industry favorite for decades, and has remained virtually unchanged since it was first designed. Weighted bases are preferred over tripods because of their stability and small footprint, yet folding tripods are a more common sight in portable systems because they set up faster than their threaded counterparts. The introduction of On-Stage Stands MS7625B Hex-Base Quarter-Turn stand offered musicians their first chance to combine the setup ease of a tripod with all the advantages of a weighted base, but we heard the clamor for a round-base version. On-Stage Stands therefore designed the MS7201QTR.
