First note I am not connected with the following other having been asked to do review for a local folk site, and because I have been so impressed with the item I would like to pass on my find to others who play at pubs and clubs.
The item I was sent is called a Pub Prop and is a simple but very effective device that clamps onto a pub table and holds a guitar, banjo, mandolin or other such instruments firm and stops them getting knocked over. The Pub Prop is well made and I think very cheap, have a look at the review or the makers site and let me know what you think?
I have one and many of the local players at my club are going to get them - it's a great idea.
My review and photo's can be found at:- http://www.fyldefolk.freeserve.co.uk/fatf/pete/pads.htm
and there is a link to the makers site there as well. I don't know how much he would charge to send them outside the UK, but within the UK they are £14.00 including a case and postage and package.
I hope no one thinks this is a spam - I am only relating the information to help other musicians having had several instruments damaged over the last 40 years having either fallen or been knocked over.
Take care and sing well
