D&A Guitar Gear Releases the Icestand

The Icestand is a minimalist-looking guitar stand for either acoustic or electric.

Thousand Oaks, CA (November 22, 2013) -- D&A Guitar Gear announces the D&A Icestand as the newest addition to their line of beautifully designed, professional, and portable guitar accessories. This rock solid guitar stand puts the instrument in the limelight.

The D&A Icestand carries all the attributes of D&A’s flagship product, the D&A Gigstand, with clear material that unveils its structure. CEO and lead designer Ravi Sawhney explains his design choice: “We’ve been experimenting with colors and approaches to our stands that would make them even more contemporary and visually exciting. Ultimately, we landed on clear, which highlights every guitar and become almost ghost-like in its ability to suspend the guitar in air. Guitars are objects of beauty and the D&A Icestand does them justice!”

With its small size, collapsible but durable construction, and weighing little more than the average lead cable, the D&A Icestand prevents damage to valuable instruments while saving artists’ time and precious case space. Because of the translucent material used, the stand has nice visual contrast with the solid body of the instrument, highlighting the guitar and adding a touch of magic.

The design team at RKS created the D&A Icestand to add the perfect harmony in every venue, so artists can just jam without wasting time or risking damage to their beloved instruments. The D&A Icestand cradles instruments securely thanks to a wide three-point base and non-slip materials at the points of contact with the guitar and the stage. It fits easily in virtually all guitar cases, and its rounded non-metallic construction ensures it won’t scrape guitar finishes. The universal design with minimalist elegance suits all artists and holds most electric guitars and basses. Designed for rockin’ on the road but perfect when off, it opens in seconds to provide easy access to guitars during rehearsal or that big gig. Then the D&A Icestand can be collapsed in two quick steps and even fit in the back pocket of your jeans!

D&A Icestand is a variation of the D&A Gigstand and, like its sister product, it comes in two versions: Electric and Acoustic. The D&A Icestand Acoustic weighs 1.2 lb with a 14.8’’ x 7.2’’ x 2.2’’ format (folded) while the Electric is 0.9 lb at 13.4” x 6.7” x 1.7”.

EVH 5150 Iconic Series 40W 1x12 Combo


The late Eddie Van Halen spent much of his early career in search of what’s now known as the “brown sound.” Years after cracking the code, he helped bottle various versions of the recipe into the 5150 line of amps. Various iterations of these amps are now studio and stage staples, and are often used in heavy genres that transcend Van Halen’s vision.
