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 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!

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.
