Thanks everyone.

I'm using it for a studio setting. Not live...

Btw thanks for the tip!
That stand looks like exactly what I need, except its a bit too expensive right now.

What I want to know is: will the second tier (of either a two tier stand; or just by purchasing "tier 2") become straight? Meaning does it bend?

Again, thanks everyone for your replies.
