||With a decade of experience building quality instrument stands, I wanted to raise the bar and change the way our stands support our instruments. I had a vision to create a stand that would support the instrument so well, that it would be next to impossible to dislodge it. As many of us know, applying pressure to the neck of any wooden instrument, can have devistating effects on the action and integrity of the necks playablity. So it was clear I needed to find a new way to secure the instrument by supporting the body only. With the help of my father who has over 30 years of woodworking experience as well as being a highly respected architect, we spent the past 8 months designing a stand that would change the way we normally rest our instruments.
We designed the Quad Pod with a few simple goals in mind:
To be impressively sturdy, adjustable, affordable and portable.
Never before has there been a stand that supports the instrument at the sides of the body. This revolutionary technique provides the superior stability that you demand from the stand you place your favorite instrument on.
The best way to explain how this technique works is to illustrate it:
The "Traditional Way" a stand works is by using 2 contact points at the bottom of the instrument. Whether they are pegs, posts, or legs they all allow the instrument to tip side to side very easily.
The "Quad Pod Way" allows the instrument to rest IN the pegs, rather than ON the pegs. This unique design allows the instrument to wedge down into the pegs, preventing it from tipping side to side. A very important feature to keeping your favorite instrument safe from pets, kids, people, and other objects. In a stability test, I placed an old guitar on the Quad Pod and threw a 2ft. rubber ball at the guitar, several times. It didn't budge one bit. No other stand on the market can provide this level of stability.
Another very important key to this design is the 4 legged frame. Most stands on the market, particularily the metal ones, only have 3 legs. As we all know, 3-wheelers were banned because of they were too easy to tip over. A 4-wheeler on the other hand is very safe and stable. Another example; think of a chair. We don't sit on 3 legged chairs because they would tip over. Look around at the furniture in your house, everything has at least 4 legs or contact points that touch the floor. This is because it provides the best stability. For this same reason, the Quad Pod has 4 legs that spread wider than the instrument. It cannot be tipped over, no matter how hard you try!
So what we have is a stand frame that cannot be tipped over and a unique securing system that keeps the instrument fixed in the stand. With this level of stability you can be very confident that when you set your instrument down to rest, it will stay safe. I have never been so confident in a product. I know you will be too. Your satisfaction is 100% GUARANTEED. Period.
