About this project
hello & thanks for checking out our project!
as you can see there's been an evolution! introducing ELASTICK mini. for details on our original designs and a history of the project, take a look at our updates page.
our goal is to make ELASTICK mini a reality and get it on as many desktops, stages, and in as many microphone stands worldwide as possible.
ELASTICK mini is a patent pending design that holds any tablet pad, onto a standard microphone clip for floor-standing use as well on tabletop surface.
our entire team currently or at some point of their lives have played various instruments either individually, in a band or in concert settings and cannot live without a daily jam to bring back the power of a few good feelings. with tablet computers playing an increasingly larger role in performances it is foreseeable these devices will become more integrated in modern musician's workflow.
going from the stage, the showroom, the office, even to the bedroom, ELASTICK mini is compact, portable and usable in any environment. it comes in black abs plastic with black silicon straps, tip & cap. extra black or red strap+tip+cap packs can also be ordered separately.
ELASTICK mini is designed to support most of current and future tablet pad devices as well as some music equipment and even a clipboard.
with your support we are targeting to have the ELASTICK mini shipping by november & we hope you are inspired and excited and choose to support the project. we hope you will spread the word and share with your friends all over the globe as everyone loves music in some form or another.
in addition we are still offering an edition of the original ELASTICK design in an 10+ap signed and numbered bronze edition - a true collector's piece.

+ for a little more details on how and why ELASTICK mini has been born, please see our ELASTICK mini update here:
yes, or we would like to say 99% as there are the odd shaped device that won't be held securely by the ELASTICK design. based on our testing many if not all tablet computers are held quite snugly, as are many electronic music devices, drum pads, sequencers, etc.,
well the answer is simple, the market response to ELASTICK was so, shall we say, "interesting" that we decided rather than scrap the whole KICKSTARTER campaign, we decided to focus on ELASTICK mini which we think has a much better chance to finding it's way into peoples homes, studios, etc., more we just can't produce both with the 15K that we are asking for
no matter what we will work with you to deliver what we have promised. our preference is that those who have backed ELASTICK will transfer their pledges and pickup an ELASTICK mini so that we can have one consolidated production run, but regardless we will work with all our backers to deliver to them
this is a great question. many have compared us to e.e. cummings, and that's a great complement. we however have a very specific reason. we believe that a design itself and the company producing that design are the important parts. a design must speak for itself with all other things held in constant even separate from the designer.
simply ELASTICK is part of a whole KICKSTARTER and everything else, is secondary.
it's not common, but then again, neither are the designs we create.
4 bands come in a pack with a standard ELASTICK mini. you also receive a non-slip cap and a rubber tip for the table in the same pack. additional packs (in red or black) are also available.
