Secure an iPad for Musicians of All Types

Drummers. Singers. Bass Players. Musicians of all types can easily integrate new technology, apps and tools into music more easily than ever before. Whether using sheet music apps, practicing along with an online video tutorial or simply keeping a set list handy during a performance, the most important element to using an iPad in your work is having it close by, at the right angle and not in the way while you play! 

The answer to achieve all of these benefits comes in the form of the Rock Solid iPad Music & Mic Stand Kit or Rock Solid iPad Drum Kit.


Rock Solid Pro Music & Mic Stand Kit

The Rock Solid Pro Music & Mic Stand Kit allows for mounting an iPad securely to the top or column of any standard mic/music stand or boom in a studio, sound booth or concert venue, without requiring it’s own stand.

Rock Solid Pro Drum Kit

The Rock Solid Pro Drum Kit opens up the possibility for the versatile placement of an iPad within your drum setup. Using an iPad as a recording or video device, and even as a replacement for sheet music, no extra stands are needed. Simply attach the included clamp and then angle the arm to get your ideal placement of the iPad.


The included Rock Solid Master Clamp is lightweight and made of cast alloy with a unique wedge insert for clamping to any flat surface or shelf. The Master Clamp features an all-metal handle with a lift ratchet style design, allowing for easy and secure tightening in confined spaces. It also features a built-in locking 5/8″ (16mm) baby socket that tightly secures a hold onto the Matthews Hollywood Superflex Arm.


The Matthews Hollywood Superflex Arm is a long reaching, 30″ (76cm) fully-extended articulating arm. With the ability to support up to 8lbs (3kg), it is strong enough to secure an iPad or tablet. One end features a Locking Hex Stud to prevent any movement when secured in the Master Clamp. The other end has a 5/8″ (16mm) Baby Receptor, 1-1/8″ (2.85cm) Stud that connects directly to the Connect Bracket.
