Default Tilt stand for S3

Anyone have any suggestion for something that could be used to tilt back an S3 to a bit steeper angle? I have been using a pair of laptop stands that I was using when I had my MC Control / MC Mix combo but they're a little flimsy for the S3:

Has anyone found something that perhaps isn't custom built, but will do the job adequately?

I did find this, but it's probably pricey (I wrote to them to ask the price), but also the wrist pad adds to the depth of the unit.

I have one of the S3 Mixingtable stands (although I don't use it now).

I think I paid around the £100 around 4 years ago.

The quality of their work is really good.

Hope that helps.

Unfortunately their pricing has gone up quite a bit since then.

Hmmmm... too bad I'm across the pond. Wanna sell it? Of course shipping to the west coast of USA is probably not trivial!

Hi James

So sorry for the delay in replying (I'm not on here often). Unfortunately, whilst I currently don't use the unit, it was a present from my wife so would not wish to part with it.

Hope you find a solution.

Take care.

Terry

Oh I completely understand and was only half-serious when I asked if you’d sell it. I found something else that seems to work okay for now. Thanks!

I'm using a very advanced method of getting my S3 to the ideal angle: It's a section of 2x4 wood six to eight inches long. It's technically "audio wood," as it has been painted black to accommodate stage situations. It's placed center underneath the back of the S3, and is so sturdy I forget it's there.
