At last Friday’s DRUM! Magazine Rhythm Night show in San Jose, both Thomas Pridgen and Marco Minnemann jammed along to tracks burned onto their trusty iPods. It’s the new standard for onstage playback, folks, and it hasn’t escaped the attention of the shrewd designers at Gibraltar who introduced the new iPod/MP3 Stand Mount.
The mount’s heavy-duty nylon clamp fits stand tube diameters from 5/8" to 1-5/8", ideal for placement on cymbal and hi-hat stands, thrones, and even some L-rods. The mount also features a 9" gooseneck and is fully padded with adjustable clamping arms that accommodate most sizes and styles of iPods or MP3 players. Simply adjust the mount to any position and lock into place — protection is guaranteed by a security tether. And the nifty little widget can be yours for a mere $99.99 (wonder what I will do with that spare 1¢?).
