Kybd stand to threaded mic stand adapter


t9cstudio

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for an adapter for my round tube kybd stand to mount my Mackie SRM150's to. The Mackies use a unique insert that has a mic stand sized threaded receptacle on one end that allows the speaker to be mounted on a mic stand.

 

I'd rather not carry a couple of more stands, so I'm looking for an L-shaped adapter with a kybd stand sized tube on the horizontal end and a mic stand sized threaded pipe on the vertical end.

 

Anyone seen something like this before?

 

Thx,

Rick

On-Stage KSA7575 Universal Keyboard Mic Attachment Bar

I'm using one of these and LOVE not having to haul my tripod boom mic stand anymore (it stays in the car, just in case, but never gets loaded into the gig anymore). :thu:

 

 

(for those astute enough to catch it, no, that doesn't mount on the QuikLok WS550; I'm now using the On-Stage Heavy-Duty Z Stand with 2nd tier, as the stages are getting increasingly smaller, and I like the stability and portability of the On-Stage Z stand :thu:)

Hey Sven, I've been thinking about a Hercules 2-tier Z stand, but I'm now eyeing the On-Stage one, especially seeing as the mic attachment bar is included. How high is the second tier from the first? I don't want my face being covered (I intend to put a digital piano on the bottom tier--88 keys--and sit). Also, do you attach a boom to the stand? I'd love to see a picture of the entire stand setup but can't find one on the Net yet (I'll keep looking).

 

Here's another idea I wanted to throw out there, though I realize it's a bit OT. I'd possibly like to use some sort of 3-tier stand. Do you think I can manage that with this deluxe second tier stand if for example I put one keyboard near me on the lower 12" height (61 keys), and a small synth slightly above at the 13.5 or 15" height? Again, I don't want my face to be covered, which is why something like this would be optimal vs. a towering 3-tier stand. Then again, stability wise, it sounds like it could be a disaster waiting to happen. The On-Stage stands are strong I imagine?

 

Edit:

 

This, from another forum, is what I've thinking of (in fact I want an Evolver on top ;)). http://mywebpages.comcast.net/eslawson/triple_2.JPG

It's an Invisible stand--height seems reasonable. Is the On-Stand 3-tier stand like that? Hmm. Again, sorry for the OT!

 

Ooo, this Ontario retailer seems to carry them still ("new" old stock)!

Why yes it is. ;) Thank you O Other Forum. eric do you still use that?

I wonder how easy it is to set up those things. I think eBay is also my best bet vs. spending hundreds at a retailer.

Set up is a snap. I should mention that I am prototyping for production of the Invisible-style stand as we speak. I am planning on having them available by summer or so? Small runs, but I am such as fan (I have three), that I would like to see them back on the market since they really provide (at least for me-YMMV) a great solution for gigging. Eric has sung the praises for many moons, although I think he's using his custom wheeled stand these days.......

Wow, that's awesome! Please keep us updated--you sure have my support.

Will do Sean, thanks.

 

An addendum to your question about the setup of an Invisible Stand is that, while the stand itself is easy and fast, the transport of the parts is a PITA.

 

The original stands had a canvas bag as an option (or maybe they all came with one?) that was really just a square sack with a drawstring on the top. It was/is very cumbersome and pretty unpractical. All the metal parts bang around inside, and it's really hard to get a grip on the thing when you're carrying it in to a gig. It was the one downside of the stand, although back in the 80's expectations about gear were much different that now.

 

Eric and others have had a custom triangle-shaped case/bag made that makes transport of the parts MUCH slicker. The custom route is pretty pricey though (although they are really nice); probably more than you can get a used stand for if you can find one. I've managed to source a Cordura version of the custom case that will be included with the stand. I think it's key. Having gigged with the stand with the goofy old sack vs. this new one I had made is a world of difference. All the parts fit in snuggly, and it's got a great comfy shoulder strap. Makes load in and setup fast and painless....

This may not be the right thread for an update, but I've decided against a three-tier stand or anything that holds a mic adaptor. In fact, I don't think my new project's going to even require three keyboards! In prep for my hypothetical digital piano purchase (which in a terrific roundabout sort of way is probably going to end up being the SV-1 despite all of my complaining), I've started preparing a new rig. I bought an awesome drum throne today to use as a stool (it's super comfy, hydraulic, and has an excellent heigh range), AND put a deposit on a stand that one of our big three retailers is ordering for me. The winner? The Hercules KS410B, a double-tier Z. :)

Last I checked the custom ones were $200+. Tonysounds said LeCover made him a cheaper one but I can't seem to get a quote from them. Would you be willing to sell one of your bags separately?

Great idea! IIRC, in a thread about invisible stands, there was a guy in the north of Sweden who was making his own "invisble stands", just like you, but that was some quite some time ago and I haven't heard anything about it since then..

Here is the post, though it seems the guy did one post and then disappeared again - too bad!
