Metaldozer Machine Works Introduces the Mod Stand

It brings the microphone to a more comfortable position by affixing the mic stand directly to a pedalboard, eliminating the need for traditional mic stand bases.

Sugar Hill, GA (August 23, 2019) -- Feinstein’s first product launch is in collaboration with Jason Dozer of Metaldozer, who provides custom microphone stands for clients ranging from Backstreet Boys to Prince to Dream Theater. The Mod Stand brings the microphone to a more comfortable position by affixing the mic stand directly to a pedalboard, eliminating the need for traditional mic stand bases.

The Mod Stand is a threaded metal bracket that mounts onto a pedalboard, effectively turning the pedalboard into a mic stand base. The Mod Stand is smaller than a standard pedal and is universally compatible with leading brands of pedal boards and will mount onto rail-style and channel-style boards without the need for tools. Every mic stand base replaced by a Mod Stand frees up to 4 square feet of invaluable stage space for the gigging musician.

Specs:

  • Compact size (5" x 2")
  • Easily installs onto leading brands of pedalboards (Pedaltrain, Gator, Temple, etc)
  • Sturdy aluminum construction
  • Slick black anodization 
  • Shoulder holes for even more mounting options.

Pricing information: $79.99

On the Tuareg band’s Funeral for Justice, they light a fiery, mournful pyre of razor-sharp desert-blues riffs and political calls to arms.

Mdou Moctar, the performing moniker of Tuareg guitar icon Mahamadou “Mdou” Souleymane, has played some pretty big gigs. Alongside guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane, drummer Souleymane Ibrahim, and bassist Mikey Coltun, Moctar has led his band’s kinetic blend of rock, psych, and Tuareg cultural traditions like assouf and takamba to Newport Folk Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, and, just this past April, to the luxe fields of Indio, California, for Coachella. Off-kilter indie-rock darlings Parquet Courts brought them across the United States in 2022, after which they hit Europe for a run of headline dates.
