I did not receive what I paid for. I did receive a low profile mic stand, but it was a "jamstands" stand and NOT an Ultimate Support stand. I don't know if this stand is equivalent, or if its a subsidiary/lower quality brand affiliated with ultimate support but I definitely didn't receive the one pictured. It seems to be alright as far as adjustment and support goes. I wish it had the same adjustment knobs as the one in the picture. They appear to be a little easier to tighten than a completely round knob.
