We recently discovered a company from Canada named Castiv. Did you know there are now over 500 apps for guitar players?
Castiv makes some very innovative mounts that make use of your apps while playing a guitar or singing at microphone stand much easier. Ever try to play a guitar with an iPhone on your lap? Not easy!
The current Castiv lineup includes the Guitar Sidekick which can hold an Apple iPhone or any smartphone. Use the guitar grip with your favorite guitar apps such as video lessons, tuners or metronomes. The grip can be used with acoustic, electric or classical guitars. Compatible with most a guitars, it does not affect playing or tuning. Works with practically any smartphone or portable media player. The grip opens to 85mm (3.35 inches) and can even accommodate many phones with a case or skin.
The Castiv Tab Station is used on microphone stands with all models of iPad as well as similarly sized tablets. Unlike many other microphone adapters and mounts being sold, this is an adapter for the top of the microphone. These adapters come equipped with a 3/8″ and 5/8″ screw thread and will screw onto the top of any standard microphone stand. Features an innovative holder that adjusts from 7 to 7.8 inches (an iPad is 7.31 inches). The cradle will rotate into landscape or portrait plus has an adjustable angle.
The Castiv Stand Sidekick is for using your iPhone and most smartphones on a microphone stand. It comes with options to clip on top of the stand or anywhere to the stand itself. The cradle opens from 2.3 to 3.3 inches so it will fit phones with or without cases. Landscape or portrait are supported.
