Cable ties from Mustafa shopping bags

There is a store in Singapore around the Serangoon Road area named Mohamed Mustafa. It is a very big shopping complex started years ago by this trader from India. The wife and I always go there t buy our groceries, appliances…in fact everything. That is because Mustafa (the pet name it is called) sells everything. And when you pay for your purchases, the plastic bags are tied up with these white cable ties, which are very useful. I have a whole bunch of them and I have used them for many projects, after removing them from the shopping bags. They are not too hard to “unravel”. So re-use them. They can be very useful

How to fasten your microphone to a mic stand if the mic holder breaks

06/05/2013 Leave a comment

I came across this picture in a Facebook group and I must say that it is a novel idea of what to do when your microphone holder breaks. Trust me, I have had my share of broken mike holders and I used to use masking tape or gaffer tape to secure them. The only problem is that after the show, the gaffer tape left a very sticky mess on the microphones and had to be cleaned away with spirit. Now, just use a few cable ties and the job is done. Check out this picture of the Shure SM58 being held in place. Great idea!
