The KickStand by Primacoustic is a massive microphone boom-stand isolator that incorporates a heavy stabilizing base with a high-density foam isolation pad to eliminate resonance from the stage, drum riser and studio floor from entering the microphone.
A common problem with bass guitars and bass drums is resonance on live stages. This is generally caused by low frequencies coupling with the wood platform which will combine at certain frequencies and generate unwanted peaks. Another problem is the physical vibration from the kick drum pedal and low-end from the PA system that causes the drums to rattle and transmit through the drum riser. Microphones that are near these sources are prone to picking up these unwanted sounds unless they are decoupled. The KickStand helps eliminate the problem by both decoupling the microphone stand from the source, while introducing a stabilizing mass to hold the microphone in place.
The design begins with a thick high density foam isolation pad that covers the entire bottom. An innovative laser cut steel platform is shaped to eliminate standing waves while offering sufficient height to allow a boom-stand to swing into the ideal position. The isolation eliminates the resonance while the added mass stabilizes the microphone capsule for greater clarity and improved transient response.
