    If this is in the wrong section please move.

    I have been starting to gig again, and am looking for the BEST clip-on music holder available. I have a gig this weekend, so it need to be available, shipped to NY for this Weekend.

    I have tried THIS one: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/285079-REG/QuikLok_MS_303_MS303_Clamp_on_Sheet_Music.html

    I found that it wasn't TALL enough to hold a full sheet of paper. I was more than satisfied with the construction, and was thinking of ways to do a simple modification.

    Any suggestions?

    I can see where the bhphoto one is too small. You might try taping a piece of black cardstock to it to make the back taller. I think I'll get one though. I put all my music on iPad with ForScore and have a iKlip on a mic stand. That little thing from bhphoto would be good for smaller items.
     
  5. I have one of the stands referenced in your second post clipped on to a cymbal stand and one that is about the width of a sheet of paper clipped to my drum kit. I imagine that you could clip this to a mike stand succesfully. I use a regular music stand http://www.musiciansfriend.com/accessories/musicians-gear-deluxe-conductor-music-stand when I play bass. This item does work as advertised. How it would work for you depends on how close or far away you have to have your music to be able to see it properly.

    Is this the small one you're referring to?

    This would be good for me as I usually just put like 5 to 8 pieces of paper on the stand.

    That's what I was thinking. I just need them for some cheats for either lyrics for a song, and or chord charts. This should work fine. I ordered it yesterday.
