Rotosound Launches the Cooperstand Guitar Stand in the UK
Rotosound is proud to announce the release and distribution of Cooperstand’s Professional Guitarstands in the UK! The Pro-G received a Best In Show Award at Summer NAMM 2010.
This is a guitar stand like no other! Cooperstand is a uniquely superior design, built from top quality materials to be a versatile, compact, and attractive wooden guitar stand. Unlike many of its competitors, its low centre of gravity with four points of contact on the floor makes it very stable. The lightweight, flexible gripping design means it can easily move along with the instrument if it is bumped, as a result it is very difficult to dislodge your instrument once it is in the stand. This makes it an extremely safe and secure place to keep even the finest stringed instrument. The stand is as effective for acoustic and electric guitars as it is for smaller stringed instruments like mandolins, violins, and most resonator back banjos.
In addition, the Cooperstand which weighs 16 ounces (500gms), can be opened with one hand, and folds up to fit conveniently in gig bags or the headstock area of most guitar cases. It has closed cell neoprene padding, inert silicone plugs at contact points to protect and hold your instrument snugly in place, and no exposed sharp metal edges. It’s the perfect choice for the performing musician looking for a professional stringed instrument stand. Users of Cooperstands include Steve Cropper (Dock of the Bay-Otis Redding, Blues Brothers, Booker T and the MG’s), Brian Ray (Paul McCartney Band) and Grammy award winner Carl Jackson.
Cooperstand is the most important thing inside a guitar case since the guitar (and your Rotosound strings of course!). It will retails for £39.95, is available on-line through the Rotosound website and through authorised UK dealers.
