With the sheer number of guitarist-oriented apps and gizmos pouring out of the woodwork these days, it should come as no surprise that some musicians are starting to incorporate Apple's iOS devices into their live rigs.

For those people, Dunlop has introduced the SturdyStand, allowing you to fix your iPad or iPhone to your mic stand for easy access to tab, lyrics or even the odd impromptu game of Angry Birds mid-set.

I'm a freelance member of the MusicRadar team, specialising in drum news, interviews and reviews. I formerly edited Rhythm and Total Guitar here in the UK and have been playing drums for more than 25 years (my arms are very tired). When I'm not working on the site, I can be found on my electronic kit at home, or gigging and depping in function bands and the odd original project.
