I have only found one online, called the Pub Prop:

http://www.eaglemusicshop.com/details1.asp/ProductID/4126/sid/329/pub-prop.htm

The only problem is--it seems to only be for sale in Great Britain and Ireland. I could not find one vendor in the USA who sells the Pub Prop.

Does anyone know where one can buy one of these in the USA?

Or-- a similar product available in the USA?

Thanks.

Not sure - I know of a Canadian musician who was touring over here bought one from our local music shop because he couldn't get them back home.

Can't you import it from over here?

Well, I guess as a last resort I could have one shipped here from the UK. Probably cost a lot in shipping cost though. There are fees for money conversion as well, charged by credit card companies.

It seems such an obvious idea--it would surprise me if nothing like that is sold in the USA.

On Elderly, they have a uke holder that clamps to a microphone stand. It would seem obvious to have one that clamps to a table as well. But so far, I have not found any other than the Pub Prop, and only see it for sale in the UK.

String Swing has a mic stand holder.

Surely you can just pay via Paypal? No conversion charge that way, isn't there? And they don't weigh that much, shouldn't be too much postage tbh.

Just a tip tho - by the strongest glue you can to ut the end on, because it always sticks to the table and unwinds itself when you're trying to take it off, and ends op rolling across the floor. Easy to lose.

I'm pretty sure MGM was listing those pub props for a while, he may still have some around so you might want to give him a call.

I bought one of those Pub Props from MGM about a year ago. He stopped posting them on eBay soon after that, but he may know where to get one.

The quote above is followed by a link to your store, that doesn't work. You also wrote that you will tell someone else to stock them, but we don't know who that store is.

More info?

That's Mikes expired eBay store - its his signature line, which he hasn't changed since his health issues drove him to close his business. He's trying to resume business on a smaller scale via email & phone until he gets another internet avenue started. SO, look in the other threads about MGM for the phone # & email, noting that MGM is still suffering from his illness (liver disease) & in Hawaii, so timezone differences should be taken into account.

UPDATE: MGM's phone #: 808-291-6069

Amazon UK carries the Pub Prop. You can order through them the same way you order through Amazon. IIRC, you don't even need to set up a new account if you already have a regular Amazon account. They handle the credit card conversions and it's essentially seamless.

I purchased my British Harry Potter books and the Peter Gabriel SACDs this way. :D

Actually, the phone number at which I spoke to MGM only last week is 808-927-7297. I'm not sure if he's still using the other phone number.

Pub Prop has a facebook page. It says when they get 25 members they'll have a give away. I just joined and am member #3. Obviously it's not hugely popular.

I looked up Kiwaya accessories at http://www.kiwayaukuleles.com/accessories.html and the only clamp holder I see clamps to a microphone stand. I don't see how that could clamp to a table at all?

So, are the pub props the only kind that clamp to a table? I'm surprised. It is a good idea.

MGM--could you tell us what price you would sell the pub props for, including shipping to the mainland US, so we can compare that with the cost of buying from the UK?

Thank you.

Out of curiosity, I just tried that, to see how much it would cost.

I put a pub prop in my shopping basket, then clicked checkout. It asked me for my address, and my address here was already filled in, with a possibility of changing it. I clicked use this address. Then I got a message cannot ship to that address.

So, I think amazon.uk might sell books and cds, dvds to the US, but nothing else.

There are British music stores that will sell and ship to the US though. However, it sure would be simpler and cheaper, if US vendors wouid carry this, or something like it.
