Terrific service, Frankfurt Customs and Donald Trump made it possible that the Mic Stand came 2 months post order.
But beside from that: Coda Team was very nice and helpful.
The magnet is really strong and because of the circular design you can easily rotate your tablet for portrait or landscape mode without adjusting anything. I feel much more comfortable with this option vs. the clamp style offered elsewhere. If someone bumps into my music stand, the only way this falls is if the whole stand goes down whereas competitor products the tablet can pop right out of the clamps.
The product relies on a crucial bit of self-assembly, namely attaching the magnetic coupler to your device or its protective case. To accomplish this the product is shipped with an alcohol swab for surface prep and a 3M VHB adhesive pad pre-attached to the magnetic coupler. In my case, the package containing the swab was perforated , meaning that the swab had dried out. No big deal, I used some other cleaning pads, but when I came to open the VHB pad, I found that the adhesive layer came away from the coupler and got scrunched up as I lifted off the protective film. I applied the coupler and waited 24 hours , but I noted that the seal is not flat - not sure how long it will hold. I used the tablet holder at rehearsal, and is a big improvement on my Rat Ipad music stand, but worried that I will have to reapply the coupler soon. Hope it does not come off while I am using it.
