MADE FOR THE MODERN MUSICIAN

Why music stands? The portable music stand was patented in 1900, modified in the 1950s – and hasn’t really changed since. Music has come a long way since the 50s but music stands and other accessories haven’t. The modern musician needs accessories that fit their needs and Noisy Clan is here to make some Noise. 

At the core of Noisy Clan, you’ll find musicians who have encountered the same struggles you have and are no longer willing to be drowned out in the crowd. Every Noisy Clan product is infused with a spark of innovation to solve the daily struggles of musicians around the world.

Our products are worth shouting about! The award-winning Wee Stand is 550g making it ultra-lightweight and portable. This pint-sized stand packs a punch and can be quickly set up and packed away in seconds so you never miss a beat! 

Grandstand is our take on the home music stand, its elegant design makes it a stunning centerpiece for any music room. Grandstand is equipped with a multitude of features that eliminate the struggles of playing with old music stands. It includes our quick click mechanism allowing you to swap media plates with a simple and satisfying click.

OUR STORY

Every parent can relate to the weekday ritual; getting our children fed, focused and laden like pack mules. Helping them gear up and get out the door is nerve-wracking on a good day…but there is always the proverbial straw.

For us, that straw came in the form of a music stand. Our kids had become experts at juggling it all; rucksacks, PE kits, instruments, music bags – and music stands. Seriously, it was always the stands that wouldn’t fit. These bulky, awkward creatures would poke, prod, and scratch, creating a domino effect, where normal morning mayhem quickly descends into petulant, “I hate music practise anyway!” As parents and as lifelong musicians, we didn’t want anything to get in the way of our childrens’ joy in playing music.

We decided to do something about it – to help our kids manage their stuff – and to help playing music to be more, well, playful. We designed the world’s lightest, most compact, ultra-portable music stand that can be tucked right into a rucksack, music bag or even a pocket without causing any damage or tears of frustration. Of course, the perfect stand has to perform – quick & easy setup, no sharp edges, fully adjustable, versatile and strong enough to withstand the knocks of everyday life.

At the core of Noisy Clan, you’ll find musicians who have encountered the same struggles you have and are no longer willing to be drowned out in the crowd. Every Noisy Clan product is infused with a spark of innovation to solve the daily struggles of musicians around the world.

Music stands have always been bulky, clunky, and less than attractive. We just don’t like to admit their shortcomings, as they’ve always been there for us. The music stand you are using today probably doesn’t complement your home – nor was it designed for 21st century technology.  Music stands have always been plain and boring – we decided to raise the ‘stand-ard’.
