Cool mic stands

I'm looking for a unique/cool looking mic stand (with boom, or angled enough to extend over pedalboard) to use live on stage. Anyone have any links or suggestions? So far the only ones that I've been able to find look like they're made for heavy metal bands. Thx.

Hetfield uses a cool stand.

Hetfield stand = Straight stand + shop vise.

That, or else he had it done at a metal shop (given his love of custom choppers and hot rods).

What's a vise? Do you mean "vice"?

If you want something cool, go get it custom made. It would be expensive but it would always be the right height and it would be yours. Zakk Wylde has a cool chain mic stand, but that is the heavy metal look you were talking about.

Check out these:
Mic-Stands.com - Home

Micstands.com - Specializing in Custom Microphone Stands and Accessories

Check out the attached pic. That's a stand I built and used when I was the lead singer for Gaskit. It was a half-stand (only 3ft long, no base) and lit up with some EL-wire and power supply I mounted in the end of the stand. Pretty cool stuff...

Vocomotion & Camerondye - I've seen those mic stands, and they're a bit too heavy metal for me. Thx for the links though.

A vice is a vise, so your "no" statement does not hold true. Sorry, I don't want to be corrected when I am correct. lol :D
from: vise - Definitions from Dictionary.com

Vise
–noun 1.any of various devices, usually having two jaws that may be brought together or separated by means of a screw, lever, or the like, used to hold an object firmly while work is being done on it. –verb (used with object) 2.to hold, press, or squeeze with or as with a vise.
Also, vice.

Not if your vice is a vise.
