(NewsUSA) -With the reopening of in-person events and activities comes a reassessment of how to carry the necessary gear for those activities.
For performing musicians or kids taking music lessons, the music stand has long been a sticking point. Many portable music stands are problematic, with sharp edges that can damage instruments, and pointy edges that poke through bags.
The Wee Stand by Noisy Clan is designed to tackle the main problems of portable stands.
Whether you are a musician on the go, or the parent of a music student, the Wee Stand's unique features and smooth design may be music to the ears of those who need to transport music stands.
The creators of Wee Stand are musicians and parents, and they were inspired to design the stand after frustration with the current options.
"Our kids had become experts at juggling it all - rucksacks, PE kits, instruments, music bags, and music stands - but it was always the stands that wouldn't fit," the inventors say on the company website.
"As parents and as lifelong musicians, we didn't want anything to get in the way of our children's joy in playing music," they explain.
Adult musicians will also appreciate the sleek design and features of the stand, which is durable, portable, and versatile. The stand is engineered to fold flat for easy packing into a bag or backpack, or even a pocket, with no rough edges.
- Size matters. Not only does the Wee Stand weigh in at less than 20 ounces, it expands from a compact tabletop mode of 11 inches to full standing height of 49 inches, with intermediate height options of 18 inches, 25 inches, 33.5 inches, and 41 inches.
- Easy reading. The Wee Stand includes sheet saver tabs to hold sheet music in place, but also features a pair of swing-out swivel clips that accommodate books or multiple sheets.
- Steady and Ready. The Wee Stand is simple to assemble, and the carbon fiber legs are easy to extend and retract, with rubber feet to hold the stand in place. A combination counterweight and carrying strap allows users to add stability.
