Glad to meet you and glad too that you're not flying over me while I'm up for air. Thanks for the explanation and image, gives me food for thought. As you're not running another piece of gear fixed to to mic stand it's impressive and I will certainly take on board the velcro around the cables next to the T1 for drop security. I had someone knock the stand over a few weeks back (on thick carpet) and everything survived in tact.
I'm going to see what I can do with a cable set up see if a computer tidy gizmo might work and I'll post it here.
