IsoAcoustics Announces Modular Acoustic Isolation Stands

A flexible and cost-effective way for players to markedly enhance their sound clarity and performance.

Toronto, Canada (February 19, 2015) -- IsoAcoustics is pleased to announce the availability of their Modular Acoustic Isolation Stands, designed especially for guitar players, bass players and other musicians who have a desire to enhance their performance and resolve isolation issues in the studio, rehearsal venues, nightclubs, theatres, concert halls, on performance stages and in many other locations. The Modular Stands can be easily custom-configured to suit a wide variety of amplifiers, speakers and subwoofers.

IsoAcoustics Modular acoustic isolation stands offer a flexible and cost-effective way for players to markedly enhance their sound clarity and performance – giving guitar and bass players more punch in the bass and openness in sound whether in the studio or one the road, providing an effective way to isolate a rig from a booming stage cavity and the ability to have consistent sound from gig to gig – all in a rugged all-aluminum construction that is built to last on the road.

The Modular Stands, like all IsoAcoustics stands, make use of the patented, award-winning “floating design” that the company has become known for. The new IsoAcoustics Modular System features can be built to any size configuration, incorporating any number of isolators required to meet the needs of the particular situation at hand.

Using IsoAcoustics online Design Calculator, the musician can choose their specific amp or speaker model from a drop-down list or enter the input parameters and be able to easily create a custom stand solution which considers size and weight and provides the musician with a specialized design solution. The stands can be configured to any size to accommodate everything from comb amps to large stacked cabinets.

“IsoAcoustics is very pleased to be able to offer musicians a custom isolation solution for their instrument amplifiers and speakers,” says Dave Morrison, CEO of IsoAcoustics. “This is the first custom solution of its kind geared toward the musician, which is both very affordable and extremely effective.” Custom orders for the IsoAcoustics Modular Stand System can be processed by your local retailer. The stands will also be available at retail in standard common sizes to complement popular brands of larger monitors, subwoofers and guitar/bass amplifiers.

Also available especially for the musician is the IsoAcoustics ISO-L8R430 Stand, which is designed for small combo amps. Measuring 17” in width and 9” in depth, the ISO-L8R430 stand offers a variety of tilt adjustments and is designed for a load capacity of up to 100 pounds.

On Black Midi's Cavalcade, Geordie Greep’s fretwork is an example of the 6-string as a capable component as much as a solo instrument, never completely stealing the show.

Popular music and mainstream tastes may be more fractured than ever, but the guitar continues to thrive.

As we soft launch into the new year, I’m not waiting for the requisite guitar obituary in the news. It’s not going to happen again anytime soon. Why? Because as far as the mainstream media is concerned, our beloved instrument is not only dead, it's irrelevant to the point of not even being an afterthought. When the New York Times published their most recent albums of the year list, there was barely a guitar-based recording to be found. Still, there is not only hope, but also cause for jubilation.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
