SwirlyGig beverage holder

  1. My daughter gave me a $10 gift certificate to Musicians Friend for Christmas, and I'm thinking of picking one up. They make different sizes, so which one would be good for your standard mic stand? I don't have my stand handy, it's at our rehearsal space.

    I bring one to every gig.

    Great product IME.
  4. The standard size works with most lightweight stands. The Ultimate TT stands (and some others) have heavier tubing and require the larger diameter version.

    I really like the product. I have them on the stands in my practice/rehearsal room too, and it seems to help to keep drinks from getting knocked over.

    Punk player, for all the times I've eaten microphone, this thing would simply ensure my bass got most of my beer!

    Now, I suppose I could affix it to one of the drummers stands...

    My brother plays guitar in a band and part of his gear is the base and bottom pole of a mic stand. He attaches his ipad gripper and twisty drink holder to it.

    I saw one of those at GC last time I was in there and wondered if they caused problems with balance...
  8. I have a SwirlyBigger, which is nice for when bartenders give me large or odd-shaped glasses. I've never had a balance problem with it.

    It depends on how many beers you use it for.

    My swirlygig is part of my must-have gear kit. I have whatever the normal size is. With a tripod stand it hasn't created any balance problems, but I do mount it as low as it can go.
