I've seen some pictures on this forum of fancy woodwork for violin hangers, music stands, etc. but I think the brave innovator deserves some recognition.

Eureka, we have the All Purpose Violin Stand.

Holds a full size violin up to a 15" viola.

Holds acoustics or electrics.

Provisions for 3 bow holding slots.  Carbon fiber or wood.

This item is ecology friendly.  Biodegradable.

Works for fiddles and violins.

Made by highly trained craftsmen using only the finest materials.

WOW!IMG_2599.JPGImage Enlarger

Love it. And the craftsmanship and use of aged natural materials shines through

and to my surprise I still have most of it left!

I'm glad there are still those who appreciate the finer things.

Pure genius!

Plus you can get a new one every time you go the grocery store.

And Mad,  there cheap enough to get one for your cat and one for your fiddle.

Now, if you get a refrigerator box, you can make a music stand to go with it.

:)

BTW, cats will only want the box that you've got something important in, i.e. the violin. If you make a special box for them, they'll turn up their kitty noses at it.

@Kinda S.    Yeah, I guess cats can be contrary and I should forget about plans for a Kitty Kondo upgrade blurry_drunk-2127

 

@ftufc   I was up at EVS yesterday for a cable.  The Bridge has performed well under fire.  I think that the semi-hollow construction adds more good bass than a solid body might. 

 

@Cdenny    Black on special ($) order only.

I think "cost effective" is a fair description.  I tried to keep it reasonable.

Nice design, classic lines, a lot of good selling points.  Probably will hold up better than some of your competitors' products as well. 

You probably could make a waterproof version from the election year signage, but I don't know as your market would find the synthetic material as attractive.

Glad you reminded me about the election year.  Time sure flies. (when is it?) 

I did not consider that all those signs were good for anything except to block the view at intersections.  Maybe a good source for space age materials as you suggest.

I love it but don't give away all these brilliant ideas for free Oliver, I am still trying to sell violin stands. :-)

Well, your stand features compact folding and I will admit that I'm having problems with that.

I may have to buy your stand for year end programs at church.  They might otherwise get bent out of shape with my version.  So far I just keep the open case handy where someone will certainly trip over it eventually.

HOWEVER,  If I ever get a new amp it will be your RMS 40W.  That is awesome for the price.  10" speakers with tweeters jimi-hendrixand all the other goodies.  I have paid almost as much for a lot less !  lumpy-2134I would say that is the best amp bargain I have found on the internet in recent history.

Ya know, I'm not really sure but the figure seems to be a bit devilish which I associate with guys. (Women are less likely to be involved in dumb stunts in a coffee cup.)

By the way, I mentioned that the FM violin stand could be compactly folded.  Well, my stand can also be folded but only once and that might work for some users.
