Performance Art meets the Art of Performance

Web Design_r2-01

The history of this stand I have designed is a good one.

During performances with my neo-classical group TwiceOne, I found myself in need of a trumpet stand that was both functional, and elegant. Thus, the TrumpetTower was born.

 

The music of TwiceOne is captivating, uncomplicated, expressive, and draws people to memories of how music has touched their lives. The final stand reflects these qualities and is ready to embody the reasons why you perform.

 

The wood is beautiful, the design is uncomplicated, the form is expressive - a fitting tribute to exceptional music - and it calls to mind the design and craftsmanship of a well-built instrument.

Functional Beauty, for the Art of Performance

"The TrumpetTower truly is for the player who considers his/her instruments to be an artistic extension of their musical expression."

“Design must be functional,and functionality must be  translated into visual aesthetics without any reliance on gimmicks that have to be explained.”

-Ferdinand Porsche

The TrumpetTower is taller and sturdier than other trumpet stands, and can accommodate both tuning-bell trumpets and fixed-bell horns. The stand is crafted from 3/4” solid exotic and domestic hardwoods, and the weight of the horns is distributed equally on the bell and leadpipe, via hand stitched, genuine cowhide leather pegs.

 

The TrumpetTower transports easily in two custom-padded heavy duty nylon bags.

 

The stand can support up to three horns, all without compromising stability.

 

When sitting for a performance, the stand puts the horns at waist level, within easy reach. When standing for a performance, the horns are closer at hand, so there is no bending down.

 

Using a TrumpetTower keeps your horns off of the floor, minimizing the risk of damage to your instruments on stage, or at home.
