Half rack effect stand

half rackhalf rack

Reader David Kristian was annoyed with having to use a full table or other object to support his half-rack effect when playing gigs. Laying the box flat made it impossible to read or tweak the device. He ended up with this mini-tripod. Replacing the pan lock screw and adding a suction cup foot created a really elegant solution. It gives a good viewing angle and it’s easy to pick up and take with you.

    Yesterday I was fooling around and found http://www.diywoofers.com and I was just thinknig that David Kristian or any other person that plays music could use it.

    Actually, I believe the address is http://www.diysubwoofers.org/ . It looks cool.

    Pretty freaking awesome. I don’t own any rack gear (yet), but I’ll certainly keep this in mind when I finally do expand my gear collection :P

    this is pretty cool, but it most likley doesn’t have to be used just for musical equip…routers anyone? :D

    Speaking of music hacks… tell us all about live 8, eliot! Did you go? I listened to the whole thing on XM radio and it sounded like a helluva time.

    Maybe as an upgrade to the suction cup, and to make it a little more universal, one could make or modify something similar to the music holder part of one of those folding music stands.
    Or maybe just a folding “X” shape with little nubs at the bottom for the box rest on.

    You really have something there. Nicely done!

    Saw this and I finnally realized how to utilize my alarm clock. I just epoxyed a nut on the bottom of the clock and used the tripod that came with my digital camera. Works well

    Yeah, all nice and easy, till someone kicks your $600 toy.

    I prefer my VF-1 in a rack. Bulky but indestructable. Look here: http://home.planet.nl/~heuv0283/flightcase.html
