Using a Tablet Computer on a Microphone Stand

Filed under: Other Mounts & Accessories — Tags: , — mountguys @ 6:46 pm

This has become a popular question lately.  Lots of music apps and the ability to crisply display lyrics or music have created a new opportunity for using your tablet PC.  The issue is that you might look a little strange holding the tablet in your hand while singing into a microphone.  The ability to hold your tablet securely while attaching to a microphone stand sounds like a good idea.

Off to the MountGuys lab we go.  Fortunately there are some nifty solutions available.  The key is to keep it steady so that you can interface with the tablet without it (or the microphone) falling over.  We have found that the mounts used for connecting to aircraft yokes and motorcycles work very well for this purpose.  Go figure….
