stick headphone...
 
hi.

i'm looking for a stick headphone. i see vestax and numark make them but what is the quality like?

i know there are some threads on this forum from 2008-9 but most of the links are dead.

where is the best place to get a custom?


cheers.

If you're feeling DIY, all you need is a busted pair of headphones, a dildo and some duct tape.

Or you can contact djmariog on this forum, he should be able to hook you up.

zomo here in germany is making a cheap lollipop

http://www.zomo.de/en/Products/Headp...ck-HD-120.html

maybe you wanna buy one and try if you like the feeling of a lollipop-headphone? at least, if you donīt like it, you donīt loose too much money.
...but i have to admit, i never used it. donīt know if itīs any good.

I have been using a Zomo stick for the past 6 months. Very happy with it's performance and durability.

I had a vestax one . . . Wouldnt waste your money. If you can afford it get a custom job from dave meza or mario g or anyone with a good rep. You will spend a little extra but get more value for money in the long run!

Louie Vega uses his lollypops & I have heard them, amazing.

I second the opinions listed here.

Ariel (or as I knew him the light guy from Be Yourself) in NYC has made sticks for Louie Vega and Tony Smith and they appear to be excellent.

Mario G. in NJ has made a ton of them and he is always posting pics on his Facebook page. They are beautiful and Mario is easy to work with.

I also have a friend in Boston who makes some custom lollipops with custom designs on the cups. He is looking to do more of these projects and would be happy to help.

My lollipops were made by ex-Waver RedBoyStix, a.k.a. Anthony from upstate NY. He was a really funny, eccentric guy on the phone and made me some nice sticks. Unfortunately he passed away over a year ago. What we do in life echoes in eternity!

Hope this helps.

Anthony passed away??? I had no idea, and he was an amazing and funny person to know; i cant believe this..

Forgive me, but was Anthony the one who lost everything in a house fire? I had sent him some records right after that happened. That's sad that he's gone.

jnkarrik 10-16-2013 10:30 PM

Yes, aka NeverObsolete. Very sad indeed, I had not heard of his passing either. Hoping that he is with richard, scotty, gary, larry, et al partying it up...

herbalpudding 10-17-2013 08:40 AM

I wouldn't have known either but his wife has been posting on his Facebook wall fairly often about his passing. It's a very sad situation. Apparently he was battling cancer after that fire took place. I know a number of us on Wave sent him things to help him get back on his feet after the fire. Hope he is in a better place now.

ArmenianSoul 10-17-2013 09:56 AM

i follow him on FB too, i remember when his house burnt down and he lost everything.

I've got one of Mario's sticks. Great quality, couldn't be happier.

Captainjr 11-25-2013 11:39 AM

Very sad indeed about Anthony passing. I know that Buzzy was sending him several items for no charge to help him out and he told me he never got a response. I bet he also had no idea of Anthony's passing. Sad when we loose anyone under these type of circumstances.

shihp001 11-25-2013 06:41 PM

Wait, Antony past away?!?! What? He is such a nice guy. RIP.

herbalpudding 11-26-2013 03:38 PM

Sorry to turn this thread into a bad news pileup, but I thought I'd let people know that Anthony's wife is selling his equipment on eBay now if folks are interested in supporting the family of a Waver.

I promise to post some actual good news of mine soon.

shihp001 11-27-2013 09:41 PM

Anthony made my lollipop years ago and I remembered he would call me to tell me how excited he had my logo on it. What a nice guy! RIP.
