I did not buy this for intended use:) I use it as a stand for my tablet, where my metronome app resides. Having dealt with those clumsy tablet holders I just had enough fiddling with their arms and hooks to readjust for all possible sizes (phones, tablets) endlessly. So I saw this and thought: "Wait a minute. That looks way simpler! My tablet or phone could be just resting on this thing and have no danger of falling out." It worked. Kind of... The plastic clamp is somewhat weird, the fixing bolt has to be screwed between the "jaws" until the very end, otherwise it will wiggle around. It could also do with angled "neck" for my specific purposes etc., but then again - I bent it myself and everything seems to be ok. Transportation is not a problem, it will not break (duh, it's mostly metal!) as some of my expensive plastic holders did. And last but not least - look at the price. It's ridiculous. For this money I bet you can just give it a try and if nothing else it will be superuseful in your rehearsal room or even garage. No kidding.
