Triad-Orbit Starbird SB-1

Those versed in the golden age of audio recording know George Starbird’s legendary Model No.180 studio boom stand has earned a place alongside the most revered vintage analog microphones, consoles
and outboard gear of the era. Starbird started Meletron Corporation in Los Angeles in 1939 to manufacture radio parts. He designed the Model 180 studio boom stand for large broadcast environments in the 1940s and recording studios soon discovered its unrivaled reach, range of motion and stability and adopted it as the large mic stand of choice. Meletron turned its focus to manufacturing pressure sensitive mechanical switches for the lucrative aeronautics, military and industrial markets in the early 1950s and ceased operations in 1970. Manley Laboratories, Inc., celebrated maker of professional studio and hifi audio equipment, purchased the tooling and trademark for the Model 180 in 1991 and produced an updated version of the Starbird in their California facility until 2010. Now in its third iteration, Starbird by Triad-Orbit (T-O SB-1) incorporates patented T-O innovation to impart new levels of performance, versatility and stability to the storied Model 180 platform. Most importantly, All Triad-Orbit Starbird stand base, boom swivel and clutch components retrofit to legacy Starbird stands.Show More

Triad Leg Tension

Triad Stand's articulating legs have individual tension setting.
If you are in a studio with the space of Warner Brother Eastwood Sound Stage, you may never actually collaps the legs. WB
never collapses the legs..
In a situation where you put the stands away often and one leg feels looser than the others you can adjust it to have more tension.

Under the base of the the stand there is recessed a 2mm hex set screw. This screw puts pressure on the 6mm larger hex screw.
Before trying to tighten the main leg hex screw, loosen the 2mm screw a few turns. Then set the 6mm hex screw a the desired tension. Important! Reset the 2mm hex screw firmly before testing the leg.
Repeat the process so all three legs have the same tension.
