Who Should Use An Ipad Mic Stand Mount?
What could you do to prevent yourself from forgetting the lyrics/ words to your song during a performance? For some singers, it could be the worse things ever happened in their singing career. It will make you looked very unprofessional and were unrespectful to your singing career.
For Guitarist, It is extremely helpful to use it with a floor standing boom mic. You can clip the Ipad mount at the middle of the mic stand and points the boom mic near to your mouth/guitar for a better position. This set up allows you to read the music sheet while playing guitar and singing at the same time.
It’s a very helpful tool for speakers who have to speak on the long presentation without worrying about missing important notes and points.
Most band members prefer to use iPads or iPhones to store their set lists and songbooks. To make the most the songbooks and music sheets in your iPad, I would suggest that you can get the iPad/tablet mic stand mounts for all your band members. It’s very useful during the live performance. All the Songbooks, music sheets, set lists can be synced together among all the members’ iPads. That is the way to make your live performance more efficient without worrying about any possibility that any member will miss a single note.
Types of Tablet / iPad Mount You Should Consider?
1) Ipad Mic Stand Mount VS Dedicated Ipad Mount Stand?
As a singer, I alway prefer to mount my iPad on the mic stand. I love to make the area in front of me tidy and clear during live singing performance rather than having two standing setups in front of me. Based on my previous experience, It makes me felt very uncomfortable because it blocked my vision, and I found that I was having some difficulties to interact with the audience while singing.
2) Adjustable Tablet Mounts (Compatible With All Tablet Sizes) VS Fixed/ iPads Dedicated Mounts (For Ipad Only)
Should you buy the tablet mic stands mount that is only made for iPad or 9.7″ iPad Pro size?
Or should you buy the one that all universally fits all sizes of tablets such as Samsung, Ipad Mini and some of them even adjustable to handle smaller devices such as iPhone and other mobile devices?
If you are a die-hard Apple fan, and Ipad or Ipad Pro are the only tablets you are going to use over the next decade. But, the problem is that the Ipad size would change upon the next model release in few years time. Therefore, I still prefer to use the Adjustable Ipad mic stand that will fit for different sizes of tablets.

1) IK Multimedia iKlip Xpand Universal Mic Stand Support For iPad and Tablets
The iKlip Xpand is an adjustable mic stand mount that is compatible with most types of tablets in size from 7″ to 12.1″. For sure, it will fit your iPad Mini, iPad, 9.7″ iPad Pro, Galaxy Tab 2 and other tablets that fall within this size range. Unfortunately, It wouldn’t fit the 12.9″ iPad Pro.
You can adjust its viewing angle and viewing orientation in landscape or portrait positions. The adjustable mic stand clamp can be installed on the mic stands boom that is up to 30mm (1.2 inches) diameter.
The built-in rubber padded base and rubber grip points on all the four corners of the grips will support your tablet firmly without scratching it.
2) ChargerCity Heavy Duty 4-Way Multi-Joint Adjust Aluminum Alloy Pole/Bar Music Mic Microphone Stand Clamp
It’s a stylish tablet mic stand mount that will fit with all the tablet devices sized from 7″ up to 12″. Similar to the iKlip; it fits most of the tablets except the 12.9″ iPad Pro. And with similar features of adjustable viewing angle and orientation positions in landscape or portrait.
You can mount it on the mic boom that is up to 50.8mm (2 inches) in diameter. The mounting gap is wide enough to be installed on the flat-edged tables, pianos, counters, desks and even the bed pole bars.
This ChargerCity tablet mic stands mount is more innovative and advanced than the iKlip as its aluminum interchangeable arm can be extended and adjusted from 6 to 10 inches. This feature alone will give you more adjusting and positioning possibilities around the 360 degrees rotation range.
Both tablet microphones stand mounts from iKlip, and ChargerCity comes with the basic features that most users need. However, The ChargerCity does pack with the additional one powerful feature that I like the most. That’s the interchangeable arm that can be extended up to 10″ inches long. In fact, with this interchangeable arm, you can use it on the many applications such as on mic stands, desks, bars, and even pianos.
In my opinion, If you merely use it on the mic stand, you can go for the iKlip one instead. However, if you want to use it in many applications and circumstances, then the CityCharger’s Mic stand mount would the one you should opt for.
