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

A bone nut being back-filed for proper string placement and correct action height.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
