Hi guys

I've noticed some guys here have some sort of pipe fitting/holder mounted on their boards to hold a mic stand. What exactly are those called? I went into home depot this morning and found nothing like those.

Also, I have a homemade "welfare" board that I built recently and it's rather large. It measures about 38 x 16 x 5.5 and I'd like to try to find a cheap case to transport it in...any ideas?

Thanks!

I think Stomping Ground sells the mic stand holder. I need one myself I think. For a case? Id look on Ebay. I use a mixer case and its held up great. I think its 32 x 23 x 6. Easy enough to cut a new piece of OSB plywood if you want to reconfigure and then drop it into the case.

Ill be posting my board in a few days as Im setting it up again with the Control 2.

I've seen the holders online but they want like $40 each for them. i know hardware stores sell them much cheaper but I can't remember what they're called.

Look in the plumbing or pipe dept. at Lowe's or Home Depot. Pipe flange is what you need.

that's it...flange. Thank you. I checked home depot yesterday but no luck.

Is that threaded or is there a way to tighten the mic stand into it? I'm not looking for it to stay attached.

Usually they are not threaded, you can drill a hole in the side of it, then thread it for a winged stud to tighten the mic stand in the holder. For more stability, I would add a short piece of piece to the stand to give more surface area for support the stand.
