RatstandsRATstands was founded in 1976 when one of Britain's leading opera houses commissioned the design of a completely new illuminated music stand. Since then, around 500 opera houses, theaters, concert halls and civic centers around the world have been supplied and equipped with high-quality and highly functional music stands and lights. RAT Stands' design philosophy is quite simple and persuasive, inspired by the world's most demanding musicians to develop and produce the best possible music stands, lights and accessories. The result is a series of products that have simple, beautiful designs and use technically advanced materials to help musicians enhance their artistic performance. RATstands fixtures, music stands and directors podiums are now the preferred choice at leading music events and concerts around the world, from the Abbey Road Studios to the Metropolitan Opera House and the Sydney Opera House.
