Professional seating for musicians
The RAT Stand was born in 1976 when one of the UK’s premier opera companies commissioned the design of an all new illuminated music stand.
Since then over 500 opera houses, theatres, concert halls and civic centres all over the world have come to value their music stands. RAT music stands are now the preferred choice of opera houses ranging from the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden to the Sydney Opera House. In addition, their music stands, conductor stands, orchestra stands and lecterns are represented throughout concert halls, national theatres and auditoriums worldwide.
RAT music stands are recognised as elite, musical furniture and equipment. The unique attributes of strength, stability, superb lighting and stackability make their music stands highly attractive. Whether you are looking for a hi-tech music stand for a modern auditorium, or a fine mixture of traditional wood and polished metal music stand with optional music stand light or for a state of the art wood-panelled concert hall, RAT have a musician’s stand to suit your needs.
All of the professional music stands have optional purpose made lamps to fit. All the music stand lamps are designed to give the best possible illumination with the minimum possible light spillage. RAT music stands have a greater range of height adjustment than other makes, and their unique stacking design enables them to be stored in places where other musician’s stands wouldn’t fit.
