KORG nanoPAD2 Stand (DIY)

If you’re looking for a stand for your KORG nanoPAD2 series, then you’re in my position. I’m struggling to find a stand (even after stumbling for 3rd party options as well), but the music store in my area (in Kuala Lumpur), they didn’t even know what I mean.

Some people on YouTube even using real drum stand for this device. If you read this and you still have no idea what we’re talking about here, please check this video:

So, here’s the tips how to build custom stand for your KORG nanoPAD2 series using something that you’ve already familiar and easily to find.

The first thing I realised that this device have almost same width with your smartphone. That’s when I though that I can use a normal phone holder with tripod screw mount to mount this device.

And it is true, when I put a phone holder for my old Phantom 3 Standard remote, actually it’s fits perfectly. If you don’t have this kind of phone holder, just look for similar holder with tripod screw mount at the back side.

When it’s mounted, it will looks like this:

From this point, as you can guess, what we need to do next is to mount this setup on your camera tripod. I’m using Benro Tripod on this picture, actually this tripod is a travel tripod and the smallest tripod that I have. But I rarely use it, so that’s why I use it for this. 🙂
