Like a couple of other products we carry on our site...Latch Lake Microphone Stands are the last mics stands you will ever need to buy...Latch Lake was certainly the product of necessity. Its sister company, Brixon Manufacturing was established in 1939 by Tom Roberts, (Jeff’s father). The turning and drilling side of Brixon afforded the ability to develop products and solve problems that other startups and established businesses wouldn’t even think of. With a machine shop in one hand and some music industry necessities in the other Latch Lake was born.
