For many years we've used the terms lectern and podium interchangeably but if we want to get technical (have you met us?) a reading desk with a slanted top where you put your speech is a called a lectern. There are many styles and sizes of lecterns but we've made your choice easy by stocking three of the most popular types.

Our Presidential Adjustable Lectern has a wood finish and the shape of the top resembles the president's large, bulletproof "Blue Goose". The bottom tapers to a column where we've hidden a motor that adjusts the height, either from a switch on the top or via a wired remote control. Microphone choices can be skinny goosenecks, or any of the recent presidential looks (two SM-57s horizontally, two SM-57s vertically, or three SM-57s Reagan style).

For a more modern feel, our clear Acrylic Lecterns look great with any stage set or decor and offer integrated microphone mounts. We usually employ two Earthworks FM-500 gooseneck mics to capture voices and maintain the streamlined appearance.

If you're going for a minimal look, our Rose Garden Toasting Lectern is modeled after another design used by the president at less formal events. Esentially just a tabletop on a heavy duty microphone stand, the lectern is light weight, sets up quickly, and packs into a small road case with wheels. Microphone options are the same as for the Presidential Adjustable Lectern.
