Primacoustic Launches TelePad-4 iPhone Mic Stand Adaptor

The TelePad-4 enables musicians to mount their iPhone directly on a mic stand, music stand or hi-hat

Vancouver, BC (September 8, 2010) -- Primacoustic is pleased to announce the all-new TelePad-4 designed specifically for Apples latest iPhone. This enables musicians to mount their iPhone directly on a mic stand, music stand or hi-hat to allow them to view one of the many applications that are proliferating around the globe.

According to Primacoustic Sales manager Steve McKay: “The new iPhone-4 is already selling at record levels and we wanted to make sure our customers had an immediate solution on hand. The TelePad-4 is perfectly suited for chord charts, backing tracks, guitar tuner and lyrics for those that play live.”

The TelePad-4 features a high impact cradle with quick release to take the hone off the stage in between sets. This attaches to the microphone stand clamp which is equipped with a ball joint for 360º rotation and adjustable viewing angle. This way, the TelePad can be used in both portrait and landscape modes. The adjustable clamp allows the TelePad to fit on the stand portion, the boom and on other devices like hi-hats, music stands and crash cymbal stands. MSRP $35.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
