MBrace - New Type of Guitar/Bass Stand Now Available in UK

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine is now the sole UK importer of Mbrace supports which fit on a microphone tripod.

The idea of these supports is that your guitar is set up at playing position in the practice room / on stage and you just walk up and immediately play it without it being strapped to you.

The benefits are quick change of instrument and less fatigue whilst playing as the guitar is supported.


A great boon if, like me, you have a dodgy back !

www.shaungenesis.co.uk is the sole UK importer

I saw the guitarist from Breed 77 use one of these with his acoustic about 7-8 years ago. He stood behind it playing electric, then reaches over the stand plays a few chords on acoustic - back to the electric.

Not sure if it was an early conception from the same company.

I'm also not sure I'd want to put my 6 string Roscoe's on one - but they are pretty cool!

It's hardly a new concept. I saw the band Renaissance in the late 70s using something similar (and probably at the time custom made) to allow them to swap quickly between acoustic and electric guitars.

A lot of hair metal bands used this sort of thing in the 80s during their ballads. Main bit of song on mounted acoustic, then lame guitar solo on electric.
