The MS7201QTRW has the look and functionality of the classic round base microphone stand with the instant threadless quarter-turn end. The threadless end mates with a unique J-slot in the familiar round base of the MS7201QTRW. In one swift motion, the user only needs to push down and rotate the shaft 1/4-turn clockwise to lock, or push down and rotate 1/4-turn counter-clockwise to remove. With the MS7201QTRW, stripped threading is a thing of the past. What's more, the sheer convenience of the design means users who prefer weighted stands, yet opt for tripods to save setup/tear down time, can now setup a quality weighted base stands instantly.
