If you're in Europe... here's your chance to get one, with reduced shipping rates. Since ALM is based in the UK. Grab one quick, because they'll go fast!

I'd love one for 1/4" cables. I use something like this now but it's not tall enough. I just zip tied two Pomona cable holders to a mic stand.

I just wonder if the material would hold up to the weight etc. I'm waiting to get a price estimate now.

... but if you just can't wait http://shpws.me/QUHS

The 3D printed prototype turned out really nice!

I would buy one of these. All you needs is any old standard lamp stand or mic stand, and hey presto.

Have you a price in mind?

Also, 4 or 6 eye-bolts could be attached to the outer holes so that it could be hung from the ceiling? Either attaching to two individual ceiling points for stability or I suppose all going to a single point for simplicity? Maybe using "swag hooks" typically used for hanging plants and light fixtures? :hmm:

Or I suppose a standard ceiling mount microphone flange could be used with a goose neck, since a solid bar might bend, break, or get torn out of the ceiling if bumped into?

Waiting on the Kickstarter page to be reviewed. Once that's ready, people can begin placing pre orders. :tu:

Yeah, I took I down. The resins too fragile, and it’s too expensive.

I'd be interested in one for 1/4" cables

Count me in for 1 OR 2 too. Cable management is a nightmare over here.

Great design!

I'd consider a request (from the manufacturer) for both steel and aluminium?

Would take one for pomonas (same cable thickness as tiptop stackcables so surely fine?) and one for 1/4 inch cables too! Looking forward to the Kickstarter.

Hi - looks great! Wondering if it can also safely hold euro cables with smaller/narrower barrels like the control cables? Thanks!

Still working out the details for the kickstarter page. Was hoping to have it up by the end of this week, but... it's looking like it might go into the next. So I'm shooting for the 25th of this month (Feb). :)

I was able to fit 360 tip top stackable cables on the prototype. Pretty awesome.

Working on additional stuff for the kickstarter rewards... t-shirts, and sticker designs.

Hi -

Are the grooves narrow enough to support smaller-barreled cables like those made by control, black market, etc.?

Thanks!
