Did you see the "Glass Head Alert" thread in this forum? It's only $15 and a great find by Matt. Do you have a Pier 1 nearby?

Thanks for the tip markl. A bit freakish, but that's what I like about it. However I really want a stand I can loop that 12' cable on as well. I could wrap it around the glass head's neck like a necklace, but that would make it a bit too unstable I think.


Any other suggestions anyone?

Hi Eric,
It's a lot heavier than it looks. You could easily wrap it around the neck no sweat. At $15 bucks it a sweet deal.

I made a simple stand out of oak. I used a 4x4x1 piece as the base and screwed a 14 inch 1x1 to that. And drilled a hole through the top section and glued an oak dowel in place. I wish I had my digital camera here.

This is actually a telephone headset stand that used to be available at Radio Shack. They no longer carry it, which is too bad. I think it sold for about $4.00 or something like that.

The pictures look like modified microphone stands to me. If you are a DIYer, get the table top version and install an extension boom arm. Mars Music store carries them and you may get more ideas if you visit the store.

Thanks for the help everyone! I decided on the glass head. It's so strange and interesting looking, I had to get it. It can also hold hats, sunglasses
etc. Go crazy!


btw you were right markl, it's very heavy indeed.

He he he...

I take it you tested all the glass heads at your local pier 1. I hope the evil stares didn't hold you back.... The Glass Head is strange but worth the ridicule...

Actually, if anybody is still reading this, Radioshack still carries them. (I don't know about online), but at my local ratshack, there are still a couple. I bought one a month ago or so for $1.40

Hhee.....pretty good deal if you ask me.

Just found two at a local Radio Shack for $0.47 each, also. They were the last two at this store. Other stores around here did not have them, but they are out there, so keep looking if you want one!

That second picture is a pic of a guitar stand made by Ultimate. I have the same model that I use to hold, well, a guitar.
