    Does anyone know of any good mic stand accessories. The ones that clip on to a mic or music stand and hold picks slides, cups...things of that nature.

    If you're looking for recommendations, things of this nature all do the job they're supposed to do, are relatively inexpensive, and will withstand the normal wear and tear of regular gigging for years. You're pretty safe just buying the one you like best.

    If, on the other hand, you're trying to find these items, you can find almost anything with a Google search or by going to your favorite on-line music store (Zzounds, Musician's Friend, Same Day Music, etc.) and searching there for mic stand accessories; most vendors all carry the same stuff...

    Various shelves & trays:

    A cup/drink holder:

    A pick holder:

    BTW, if you cut one of these pick holders up into smaller sections, they make great mic cable retainers.

    Thanks for the links!

    Does this look like a 90 degree angle or not? I can't tell...

    This might be my best bet, though the Melodica may not fit on it exactly (gaffer's tape to the rescue!)..

    Looks like a 45 degree angle to me, plus it clamps to the side of the stand and I don't know how heavy the gear is you want to put on it. I've found this one http://www.zzounds.com/item--RAXAR5 works real well for all kinds of stuff, and since it mounts directly on top of a mic stand, it ought to be a lot sturdier.

    Any thoughts on some sort of a tray or platform on top of a mic stand to securely hold an echoplex at thigh height?

    Take a look at this one http://www.zzounds.com/item--RAXAR5. I don't really know how big and heavy an Echoplex is, but if I wanted a shelf to hold something sizeable, I'd prefer something like this because it mounts to the top of a mic stand as opposed to clamping to the side. The overall weight would be distributed better, and if you needed a bigger surface area you could cut a piece of plywood or plexiglass to size and mount it to the riser with your choice of fasteners. For something like that, I'd use some 3M Double Face Tape. This stuff is real handy for use around the house and I prefer it over velcro for guitar rig and pedal board applications. You really don't need to use a lot of it to hold things secure, it's fairly easy to remove when you want to change something out, and it leaves no residue.

    The singer I play with has his all gee-gawed up like Christmas tree. He's got picks on there, a little branch for his slide, drink holder like a Toyota has, and a little platform for a cheat book of lyrics. I'm always telling him all he needs now is a coffee pot with a little warmer. It's a fricken mess.

    K&M looks promising. I have e-mailed them.
    Thanks for the tip.

    Thanks for another worhwhile tip. I'll check it out.
    Suspect of the weight issue with this clamp on style. I want this thing to be earthhquake proof.
    Thanks, again.
