  • Give it an Ovation

    I rarely play live whilst sat but always practice that way and as I have a large bowl Ovation have always struggled with it gradually sliding off my lap. Then whilst sat in someone's car I noticed a device for holding phones and sunglasses, a quick call to my mother in law and one of these arrived in the post today. http://www.dhgate.com/store/product/car-anti-slip-pad-powerful-silica-gel-magic/14386312-142818182.html it is made of gel and just sticks to everything and anything without leaving any residue. So I have slapped it on the base of the bowl and voila no slipping, brilliant and the cost buttons.
    I know Ovations aren't that popular but if you have one and need to play it sitting down, give this a go.
    As an aside I have never felt all that safe about my ipad holder and am going to apply one of these to it to make me feel better.

    brilliant solution!

      LOL, I don't get along with Ovation guitars standing or sitting.

      Something about the opposing curve to my belly!:smileyembarrassed:
