The Best & Coolest Microphone Stands in Music

We see lists all the time of the best guitar, the best drum set, the best of whatever you can think of.  Well, I thought, what are the best and the coolest microphone stands in Music?  I did a lot of digging and it was not the easiest thing to find.  When you google best microphone stands, you get pictures of the industries best microphone stands.  Not the coolest or most badass, but basic advertisements selling really good mic stands. I don’t want that.  So, I kept digging and digging and I have now come up with some of the coolest microphone stands in music.

We will start with the most obvious….Steven Tyler.  Steven is known for walking this way with a mic stand draped in scarves and a lot of them.  It is simple, but it is easily recognizable as Steven Tyler’s microphone stand.

Next up, we will go to the pop world with Brendan Urie of Panic at the Disco.  It isn’t really cool or awe inspiring, it is kind of quirky.  It is a microphone stand of a hand holding a mic…but at least it is not the typical stand.

My Favorite Guitars

 

I have always wanted to learn to play a guitar.  I tried when I was a kid, but I have two big problems. One, I have zero patience and couldn’t understand why I wasn’t great right away.  Two, I am tone deaf and couldn’t tell you a D flat from an A sharp.

So instead, I just listen to a lot of great guitar players and sit in awe of their incredible talent.  I also have a dream of collecting autograph guitars, but I have another problem with that…MONEY!!  Or lack thereof.

If I had all the money in the world, these are the guitars I would go after.
