    Default Mounting an iPad Pro 12.9"

    Hello!

    It's been forever since I was here. But now I need your wisdom!
    I just got an iPad Pro 12.9" 3rd gen.
    It'll serve MANY purposes, but for a couple of them I will need to mount it.
    But, I don't want to have multiple cases/mounts. I need a modular thing that does everything.
    I bought it with the pencil and the Logitech keyboard slim folio case, so for everyday use that's fine.
    Now I need to take care of other two applications for it, which is why this post exists:

    - Mounting it to one of my cymbal stands or somewhere else close to me while playing drums live (I play to a click track that will be played from the iPad, so I don't just need to see it, I also need it to be within reach to operate it. Right now I play the click track from my phone, and that's in my pocket. The iPad will be much more elegant and will also serve as the setlist, and will free up my phone for going live on instagram)

    - Using it to operate my Ui24R to mix bands live from a distance.

    So I need a case that has BOTH the option of a hand strap and a modular solution to mount it on the drums with some sort of bar clamp.
    I have been highly disappointed with this because it's surprisingly hard to find anything that will fit the bill.
    I did find something though:
    This case
    Case
    And this accessory
    Clamp

    Now, again surprisingly, I can't find any videos or reviews or anything, of people USING them.
    Anybody here have experience with the brand, or can maybe recommend something else?

    Thanks in advance, guys!

    Get a collapsable K&M music stand, cheaper, more versatile, and easy to get the positioning you need.
    Pearl, Natal, Ludwig, Tama, Slingerland, Premier Drums
    Zildjian, Sabian, Zyn Cymbals
    PEARL, LUDWIG, TAMA, YAMAHA, NATAL and DW Snares

    Roland, Dauz, FAT KAT and Koby Electronics, and loads of Percussion

    4 Kits and 8 Snares, and I still don't have enough!

    I use this. The little hook that comes off to hold the toilet paper works awesome for hanging headphones.

    So, a music stand is what one of my bands is using ATM.
    Not nearly enough sturdyness for my tastes, one bump and down it goes. Nope!
    Now this bathroom one could be cool. Hmmm.

    Here it is in my setup. Just realized it doesn’t fit your size iPad. Maybe they make one that does.

    I find it hilarious that iPod stand is made for the bathroom. You know how much atomized poo ends up on the screen, then on your hands and then in your mouth? GROSS.
    It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.
