Adam Gontier's Mic Stand
According to Wired.com, Three Days Grace sing Adam Gontier has commissioned the coolest microphone stand ever. Artist Chris Conte fabricated it to the singer's specs, right down to making it left-handed.
"Conte made three of the mike stands (Gontier bought a backup for the road). The mike stands are constructed primarily of stainless steel. One part of the quick-release mechanism is made of brass.
"The arm you see in the photos is actually a casting in stainless steel of the master using the lost-wax process,” Conte said. “Eleven separate silicone molds were taken from the master to create the wax models needed for the casting process.” The project took about three months, and Gontier used the stand onstage for the first time Feb. 19 at the Prudential Center in New Jersey."
