    Hi All

    I'm trying to get away from the old fashioned lyric sheet stand.....yes I know I shouldn't need one!

    Anyway I use a straight mic (no boom) and all I can find are ipad mounts that are held to the side or between me and the mic stand which is too uncomfortable. I can't seem to find one that sits out front in a similar position to where a lyric stand would be. I'd prefer it if the mic stand was in between me and the ipad if that makes sense.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    It seems to me that something like this from the OnStage U-Mount Line could be positioned on any side of the mic stand - and still rotate the iPad to face you. Two points of contact that rotate 360˚and a ball joint too. Have a look.

    You could always go to a drum shop. A well-stocked drum shop will usually have every kind of clamp, boom, and offset arm under the sun. Clamp one end to your mic stand, clamp the other to the iPad mount.

    Best of luck.

    I use the Behringher P16 monitor mixer, and had the same issue. It now has it's own stand, which is much simpler, and less expensive than the clever arms which cost more than a full mic stand!

    Thanks for the replies.

    The u mount appears to attach to the top of of a Mic stand (unless I'm looking at it wrong). I want something waist height to attach to my Mic stand that already has my microphone attached.

    That's a good idea Dave, Heck, if they can make mic stand mountable ashtrays and beer can holders, ya just know they have to have something for an ipad that makes sense.

    Actually I see it now! Yes that might work. I'll check it out.

    Thanks.
