           Hello and welcome to The House of Chrome.

  You are looking at a rare older Snyder model desk stand from the 1950's era and great for just about any older vintage microphone. This was the large Banquet style adjustable two piece riser type that came with a thick 3 tier "waterfall" cast iron base that has an older deco vibe that was very popular from the 1930's to 1950's. The look lost favor and these stands were eventually discontinued by the mid 1960's but they are a great platform for all small, medium and some larger microphones.

 I have sold several of the Snyder DM-1 model stands that are about 1/3 the size of this model and to be honest to this day I still don't know what this model number is? Perhaps the DM-2? I just have never seen a catalog or data sheet on this particular style but it was basically the Atlas DS-7 equivalent. I have only come across 4 of these in the past 10 years and they very rarely come around.

 As where the DM-1 model is appx 7 inches tall X 4 1/2 inches wide...this example is adjustable from a height of 11 inches when the top riser is lowest and can be raised up to 17 inches giving you plenty of height. The base on this model is appx 6 inches wide giving you very good stability for most vintage mics. It weighs roughly 5 pounds as well.

 You can mount any screw on mic or mic clip to this stand as well. 

 These harder to find stands were only sold for about 10 years. I'm not sure whatever happened to The Snyder company but it seems they were either bought out or went out of business as Atlas Sound Company pretty much took over the microphone stand scene around the 1960's.

 The original black paint on the base of the stand looks very nice with no wear. There are some subtle deformities in the casting process but otherwise the base looks great. The two chrome risers looks very nice as well with zero corrosion. There is an inner mechanism that provides plenty of tension on the upper riser. Simply pull up or push down on the top riser and you can get the mic at just the right height for you. 

 There are zero stains or rust on the bottom of the base. There are 3 new felt pads as well.   This is an excellent example. 

 If you like rare and eccentric then this Snyder stand will certainly work for your needs.

              Please let the detailed pics be your guide.
