Microphone stand 210/2 demonstrates greatness

A product making history for König & Meyer the music accessories manufacturer. An absolute classic, the microphone stand 210/2 has been around for over 4 decades.

Sixty years ago Karl König and Erich Meyer founded the company König & Meyer in Wertheim and initially produced music stands and thread gauges. In 1954 production of microphone stands in collaboration with Siemens began. The first microphone stands had a screw-on base section and no boom arm. At the end of the 50s, the company’s founder Karl König developed a unique swivel joint to adjust a boom arm and improve functionality. Martin König, the son of the company founder began work as far back as the 50s as a tool maker in his father’s business also making microphone stands. After completing his degree in mechanical engineering and having worked for Philips and BASF, he returned to the company as plant manager in 1965. In 1966 father and son developed a new base construction for the microphone stand. The screw-on base was replaced by a folding base section and the shape of the base was re-designed – a design that still holds good today. The microphone stand 210/2 was born! Even today, with its clever functionality and extreme longevity, it sets the standard for a professional and reliable stand for both stage and studio. Utilisation of high-quality materials and optimized production processes guarantee top quality for the 210/2 and all other König & Meyer’s products.

The photograph shows Martin König with his personal “favourite” product – this is not a photomontage! The larger-than-life version of the great 210/2 was faithfully recreated for König & Meyer’s 60th anniversary celebrations.

The stand more than deserves its “greatness” pictured here. We would like to thank all our customers, musicians and our friends who have decided for this product.
