One of My Favorite Christmas Presents

Post by WileE on Tue Mar 15, 2011 4:35 pm

I received this CooperStand for Christmas this year. I really wish that I'd invented it. It's wood, folds up, fits under the head stock area in a guitar case, and it works well for guitars and mandolins.

WileE,

Santa was very good to you. Maybe Santa will be good to me this year too! When it is folded what are the dimensions--a mando case isn't as big a guitar case so this would need to be packed separately.

It's about 9" x 4.5" x 1.75" and comes with a velvet pouch. And, you're right, it doesn't fit in a fitted mandolin case -- at least not mine.

I some how missed this post WileE! I was playing in Florida a couple of months ago, and a friend of mine had one. I didnt even give it a second look at the time, but I picked one up a few weeks ago. Very cool, but even though it fits in the headstock compartment, I wont put mine there. I dont want that thing flopping around hitting the headstock. So small you can stash it in your laptop bag or wherever. BTW, this stand is MORE stable than your standard tubular guitar stand. I "Tele Tested" it. Very cool.

I got one as well. I brought it with me to Los Angeles. It works great for mandolins too.

Yeah, I generally put a towel in between the stand bag and the headstock or put it in a gigbag (bought an Access Stage 3 gigbag last year that is great -- it's the bag that Breedlove used originally).

Nice! Did you put it in a case or bag with the mando or carry it separately?

Good looking display stand. Looks a bit weighty.

Mine is just under 14 ounces -- not too bad.

How about a picture of it straight on and from behind? I would like to see what it looks like from all angles.

Oh ya, a couple more things. What is it covered with? I mean the black parts are they felt, rubber or some kind of plastic? Do they come in different woods or different finishes? I need something that gets me out of the metal stands I am using. I plan to hang some of the guitars on the walls but my brass rosophonic will be to heavy I think for the wall.

Argh, second post that I've lost today...

Anyway, Rags, the part that touches the guitar is a closed cell neoprene. They have an eco-friendly recycled plastic version and a smaller one. Their website is: http://www.cooperstand.com/

Here's a front view.

Thanks WileE. It looks strong enough to hold my National Resophonic without any problem. I will have to check at one of the local music shops and see if they are carrying it yet.
