test | Triad-Orbit microfoonstandaards
Dutch magazine, Interface.nl has featured Triad‑Orbit in a rare article (for them.) A Magazine that usually focuses on high end studio gear, synthesizers and audio gear; they were taken aback by their own reaction to our stands.
“Never in my life did I think I would be reviewing mic stands. The T‑O stands however are so special that they can tell a whole new story.”
“For every application and (unusual) situation T‑O have found an answer.“
“A great microphone deserves a great, sturdy stand and Triad‑Orbit’s are terrific.”

Triad-Orbit Stands Redefine Quality Standards
Some innovations seem to come from out of nowhere. The greater their break from long-observed convention, the greater our surprise. To fully appreciate the design elegance and engineering brilliance of Access Products Group’s Triad-Orbit stands and accessories line, try one. Work its articulated adjustments, fit it where other stands falter, and all will be obvious. But to grasp the real cost of originality and staking a claim in a teeming marketplace, peel back the purposely preserved obscurity of the line’s OEM origins. Reveal the vision, talent, and tireless diligence that coalesced over decades to make its invention possible. Such products’ long journey from “nowhere” may reflect the best of what our industry has to offer...read more

Advanced Stands Systems
Triad-Orbit is a new brand of professional microphone stands from Access Products Group, a company that has been designing and producing products for other market leaders for over twenty years. The Triad-Orbit catalog includes Triad stands, Orbit booms, and Micro mic adapters - all clean-slate designs.
The Triad stands are my favorite part of this line-up. They come in three sizes - T1 through T3 - with a smaller Mini promised for future release. From a distance, they look like a regular mic stand, but up close, the details jump out...read more
In addition to standard circulation, XOUND magazine is also available free-of-charge for customers of “Just Music” and “Session Music” – the two biggest pro-audio retail-chains in Germany.
Translated: "With it's unique stand-concept Triad-Orbit should usher in a new era. The concept is extremely well thought out and provides "never-before-seen" developments in flexibility for practical use. Besides all of the innovative features, the tripods are very robust and therefore likely suitable for tour use. Triad-Orbit is priced in the range of other professional tripods, and are definitely worth the money. I'm sure that many Triad-Orbit users will be inspired - probably even their competitors."

Triad-Orbit Stand Systems Make the Finals of The Voice.
May 21, 2014
The unique silhouette of Triad-Orbit stand systems took center stage on the final episodes of NBC’s hit program, The Voice.
On Monday night, May 19th, Country superstar Blake Shelton joined his teammate, Season Six finalist, Jake Worthington, on Hank Williams, Jr.’s 1982 classic, ‘A Country Boy Can Survive.’ Shelton performed seated, strumming his acoustic guitar, with his Sennhieser wireless vocal mic solidly suspended by a T-O T2/O1 stand system. Watch the video.
On Tuesday evening’s finale, Team Adam (Levine) standout, Christina Grimme, joined British pop sensation, Ed Sheeran, to perform his latest release, “All The Stars’. The Voice production staff employed a T-O T3/O2 stand system to anchor their duet. Later, Team Blake’s Jake Worthington joined Country Hall of Famers, Alabama, for a rousing rendition of their signature song, ‘Mountain Music’. Alabama lead singer, Randy Owen, used a T-O T2/O1 stand system for the performance. Watch the videos: Ed Sheeran & Christina Grimme / Alabama & Jake Worthington.
“There’s no mistaking Triad-Orbit stand systems with any other ordinary mic stands,”said Marty Harrison of ACCESS Products Group, parent company of Triad-Orbit. “The Triad-Orbit T2/O1 stand systems that Blake and Randy used redefine tripod/boom mic stands with their unrivaled stability, stance and precise positioning. Orbit 2-equipped T-O stand systems, with their dual independent boom arms, offer twice the utility of ‘old school’ stands in half the space. While a Orbit O2 boom is the perfect choice for miking drums, acoustic instruments and ensembles in stereo, pairing iOS devices with vocal mics, ADR, even suspending RF antennas, the quintessential O2 application is simultaneously supporting two vocalists, and Ed and Christina definitively showcased the essence of the Triad-Orbit vision. We could not be prouder to have our stand systems assisting these great artists and the amazing talent behind The Voice.”

Road Tests: Triad-Orbit Advanced Microphone Stand Systems
George Peterson - I never thought I’d be reviewing a mic stand. But then again, Triad-Orbit’s Advanced Microphone Stand Systems aren’t ordinary mic stands. Actually, the real point here is whether I need another (or several) more mic stands. After all, I have a ton of them that I’ve bought over the years, ranging from cast base models to various folding versions.
Unfortunately, I continually keep buying more every year or so, because, if truth be told, the life expectancy of the average mic stand under daily pro use is pretty short. Clutches wear out, threads strip and those barbell-style cinchers on boom joints either break off, bend or simply fail at the worst possible time. And how many times have we all experienced “mic droop” — where the boom mic ever so slowly begins to sag...read more...
