The worst part (well except for just about everything else) about being a electronic dude is the table situations in clubs. They are meant for setting drinks on, not making the artist look like a tall confident performer. Every schlub with a laptop has a picture where they are huddled nebbishly over their arcane gear, and frankly I am sick of it, so I went out and did what EDM artists do best with problems: THROW MONEY AT IT. Enter the Quik Lok LPH-001. This company makes all kinds of stuff to hold your stuff on, and this stand is NO EXCEPTION. It will hold the fuck out of your mixer, your little keyboards, an Ableton Push, WHAT THE FUCK EVER. Anything you got (probably under 15 lbs or so to be on the safe side) will proudly be held erect by the stand with its relatively sturdy tripod design. If you are some mincing laptop dude it’ll hold that too, but why bother pretending you are a proud member of the homo sapien genus, if all you are going to do is just stand up and run MMC transport, right?
- Pros: Its a stand. Its black. It holds your moderately size junk at a height that befits your standing in society. Rubber strips keep stuff from sliding around on the surface.
- Cons: It doesn’t lower very well, so if you are Mr. Shortstuff, you might to try it on before you take it home. You can set it pretty high but then it becomes super precarious so whats the point? Just get a keytar strap and rock out like your nerd frat is rocking the greek games already. Doesn’t come in colors other than black if you have a problem with shades that match everything.
- Final Verdict: If you got $40 USD and a sore back, there are worse things to waste money on.
