Wow haha, thanks for the bump guys :p. I would like to start selling them. They're really easy to make if you have a power drill. I got sidetracked with so many projects that I never found a more color coordinated option for the bracket, but I guess it doesn't matter :)

Well if anyone is interested, I'd be happy to make more...just PM me. Working on one that doesn't require taking apart an original VB stand too.

This looks like the best custom design yet for a stand. I've been contemplating how to fashion one similarly but would need my metalworker brother in law to help me with the tools and getting it done.

Have any of you purchased/tried one of these out yet?

I just grabbed one so i can give it a shot with a custom flexible tripod setup.

Wow... that looks pretty nice, and the price is very reasonable. That's kinda funny that someone else had the same idea... I was bored a couple months ago and quickly threw together a design for a 3D printed VB tripod mount as well. I didn't really like how it turned out though and never got around to improving it. But that one looks way better, if it works as advertised (no screws, springs, etc. needed).

The thing I quickly found was that a full size tripod isn't really convenient to use for playing, since the legs are kinda in your way (something with a boom would be much more convenient)... and the flexible one isn't really sturdy enough standing as a tripod. The flexible one may work if you've got something to wrap it around, but the VB is kinda heavy for it. The best one would probably be a small tabletop tripod... but by the time you buy the adapter and a small tripod, it's probably more expensive than a real VB stand.

Dog, I think we had the same idea lol

I ended up getting a GorillaPod as well, but not the original version. The SLR Zoom variant (in Black and Red, ofcourse) can supposedly handle up to 6lbs without a problem.

So this + 360° ball mount + 18" heavy-duty gooseneck extension should allow the VB to be playable in any position.

Will report back.

PM'd back, might as well make the dog house more fun to stay in ;)

Those replacement things on ebay are pretty nice, I may pick some up since I have more VBs than stands. I recently found a mini microphone stand that has a pretty heavy base and 14" boom arm or so...might try using that for a smaller tabletop stand.
