Attach iPhone to electric guitar


I want to attach my iPhone to my electric guitar so that I can wirelessly trigger MIDI commands. Years ago, I had a "Sonic Clamp", which was a clamp with an iPhone 4 shell, but I kept neither the iPhone nor the Sonic Clamp as newer phones wouldn't fit.

My search brought up some solutions that may be fine for a home / practice setup where you probably use it for lyrics etc, but in my case I need the iPhone to be attached to the guitar so that it's super stable (phone won't drop) and reachable without moving my picking hand too far from the guitar.

So no headstock clips, no suction cups, no goosenecks.

I have a really good Gopro compatible phone holder, so a guitar attachment for a Gopro would also work, but all I found there was a glue-it-on solution.

Any hints how to solve that so that problem?

You’ll need an interface to sit between your guitar and your iDevice. I use the line 6 sonic port.

Nope, they are just using it for MIDI over wireless not signal processing.

Velcro tape maybe? Buy a second case for your phone and put thr velcro tape on that - it will hold.

I totally agree with Reverb.
The velcro solution is a classic!

+ If you want more flexibility you might want to have look a the armor-x website.
