  • iPad 2 Stand Holder???

    Ok, fine...I ordered a 64gb iPad 2. If I want to use it on a boom stand, what are my options for keeping it protected and in place? My biggest concern is if the stand were to tip over.

    I really want it to be useable on a boom stand and something that will keep it will protected and keep it from getting scratched up.

    Thanks!

    Why a boom stand?
    If you don't want it scratched, either get a case for it, don't scratch it or just leave it at home.
    If you put it on a boom, you're inviting disaster unless you're willing to weight the base of your stand.

          This is the one I got for my Android 10.1 tablet, http://www.mountguys.com/Microphone_Stand_Mount_for_Tablets_and_iPad_p/mfx085-tab001.htm it is universal and will fit iPad or any tablet

          It holds it very securely in either orientation. The spring loaded tabs have rubberized serrated jaws with tight spring action to hold the tablet tight. They give you short tabs, and long tabs so you can use with or without a case. Depending on your case thickness, you can use the short or longer tabs supplied.

          The swivel/tilt mechanism locks into position by tightening a thumbscrew, and stays in the position you set. The clamp fits any part of a mic stand and will open to attach to larger items up to almost 2".

          The clamp is metal, the rest is plastic, but it seems rugged, like ABS plastic.

              Not on the top of the boomstand...on the straight part below the boom...the iKlip seems to be a good pick, but Mike's suggestion would let me keep it in a case. Thanks!

                Looks just like the one I got (different brand). It doesn't "lock" in an iPad2, but I'm keeping the ipda in a rubber case and with the case it fits pretty snug. I also added some additional weight to the mic stand I clamp it on.

                  I'm a little confused...I never even thought of my stand tipping. Does this often happen to you?
                  The only issue I have with the IKlip and where you want to attach it to is that it takes a little while to get used to. Its just a weird place to mount it. I've had it there for about 25 gigs and I'm actually thinking of using a 2nd stand so I can keep it off to the side.

                    Fair enough. It was Late andI read your post to mean you intended to protrude yo' pad.

                    My bad.....

                      For use with my keys I've developed three alternatives. An X clip just mounted on a goose neck to the top of a standard mic stand (without boom). Just stands in front of the kb, like a music stand but less obtrusive. For my standastic kb stand I made a beracket that fits the same goose neck and x-clip to the top of one of the supports. It's very unobtrusive. and for use with an x stand I took an old 2nd tier leg (the part that bolts into tube of the x stand) and made a bracket to take the gooseneck and x-clip again. For the brackets to mount the gooseneck I usually cut up one of those mic stand adapters, this sort of thing
                      Just get a bit creative with what you want, you don't 'have' to use ready made stuff.

                        For use with my keys I've developed three alternatives that all use an x-clip. 1. The clip just mounted on a goose neck to the top of a standard mic stand (without boom).

                        or this

                          I use the iKlip. It's a little pricey at around $42 but it works pretty well and it's rugged enough to not slip during a performance. I put mine on the mic stand portion (not the boom) and it works fine. I have decided not to use it anymore in my band, but I will probably keep using it for my eventual solo shows, where having lyrics and chords handy for multiple requests (and possibly controlling backing tracks) will keep it as a useful item for years to come.

                            The added benefit of doing this, other than freedom of where you can put it, is that it won't be seen in photos blocking a portion of you while you are singing and playing.

                              After Tim's post saying go with the iKlip, I decided to check it out. The funny part is that all the illustrations show the performer a step or two back from the microphone. It is a little awkward with your face on the microphone to be able to see the tablet, even with my mount. LOL!
