IK Multimedia’s iKlip 2 for iPad holds
an iPad securely to mic stands up to 1.2”
in diameter (there’s also an iKlip 2 for
iPad mini), and uses a ball joint so you
can twist it to pretty much any angle you

the TelePad (with two versions for different
iPhone and iPod Touch devices).
This also attaches to a mic stand, with a
cradle you can rotate and angle as needed.
But perhaps the most important feature
is a quick-release mechanism so you can easily remove the iPhone from the stand
between sets. IK’s iKlip Mini also holds
iPhones, but has the added feature of a
detachable bracket for holding their iRig
Ultimate Support’s higher-end Hyper-
Pad 5-in-1 Stand has a pole clamp for
attaching to a mic stand or pole, but also
mounts on the top of a mic stand with
a 5/8" adapter and gooseneck arm for
adjustability. A different clamp can attach

to mic stands, but also has an adapter to
work with mic-stand threads, and can
accommodate keyboard stands or tripods.
One thing is for sure—any of these will
make you feel a little more secure about
taking your iThingie out into the world.
