Gear spotting - Wix Wickens kb stand(s) "Strat Pack"


Stormfront

Recommended Posts

All,

 

In my never ending quest for the ultimate (pun intended)kb stand I was watching Palladia tonight. It was the Strat Pack concert from probably 2004. Anyway Wix was the KB player and I'm wondering if anyone who saw this can id the type of stand(s) he was using?

 

Looked kind of like a couple of Standtastics but then again ..no. There was x bracing from side to side but the rest looked like it could be some form of Z stand.

 

Thanks,

Pete

I've been wondering about that stand also, every time I saw McCartney on TV or DVD.

 

I think it's just a Z stand with custom X bracing for reinforcement.

 

Unless of course someone has seen this stand before.

As much as I fail to see the reason behind identifying the stand that someone else uses, having seen that rig from a few different viewpoints it looks like a simple Z stand with a custom metal crossbrace added.

 

This image (not sure of date, but it's a while back given the gear in the rack, and lack of Receptors) shows a Z-type stand, for what it's worth:

I know, what was this this guy thinking coming to a keyboard forum asking about keyboard hardware amongst keyboard gear fanatics. He must be lost. :D

Here, we talk about gear that hasn't shipped yet and bitch about features the unreleased gear doesn't have. :laugh:

LOL... smartass. :P

 

If you can explain how one person's choice of stand is pertinent to their sound, I'm all ears. :thu:

 

Wix has a road crew that handles all his gear for him; if the stand takes 10 minutes to set up and tear down, what difference does it make to him? I'll guarantee it would make one of us "regular joes" curse the stand and the company that makes it until we're blue in the face, though. What if it was wobbly as hell, until they spot-welded the X-brace that the audience sees, so now it's stable, but it doesn't tear down at all, and requires a 4' x 3' road case just for the stand? All things that we would have no way of knowing, but might be the reality. So how does identifying Wix's stand help any of us?

 

I'm just sayin'... ;):wave:

Thats right! Recently developed rules state, you are not allowed to discuss gear unless you have actually physically touched the gear. Only then is your input, insight, and even questions considered. Comments exhibiting curiosity and anticipation are frowned upon here. :wave:

 

So stormfront, at this point this thread is read only for you until you get this keyboard stand. Im sorry... :(

Moe, that can't be the invisible stand - I can see it! I actually have one but for some reason can't take pictures of it.

 

Sven, mea culpa

 

It's probably a prototype Monolith II that won't travel well, falls down when someone plays something on it and will come only in RED!

 

At least thanks for the laughs.

Actually looking at the video now, that looks like something I would build.

 

Until I got the leg kit for my stage, my stand was a custom affair made from cut up pieces of my old Invisible Apache stand, with an added aluminum cross brace. I'll try to take some pics and get them up some time.

 

The stand in my avatar holding the chroma is the same design, except that it is heavy welded steel and doesn't collapse down.
