Q: What is Wee Stand?

Q: How much does it weigh?
A: Wee Stand weighs 560g. For the Yanks – that’s less than 20 oz! About the same as a loaf of bread.
Q: Who created it?
A: Wee Stand was created by Noisy Clan. We are a group of musicians and parents of musicians who wanted more play time!
Q: Why should we use it?

Q: How much does it cost?
A: We are still working out final pricing. Stay tuned for the launch of our crowdfunding page!
Why is it so expensive?
This music stand is the first of its kind, designed from the ground up to be lighter and more portable than anything on the market. The design we are launching uses premium and expensive materials, including glass-filled polycarbonate/ABS, carbon fibre legs, and a custom-designed friction hinge. Additionally, as a start-up company, we are not able to produce the stand in large volumes, which pushes the cost up further. Our intention is to be able to reduce the cost as we manufacture and ship many more units. Meanwhile, the upcoming Kickstarter campaign will offer significant savings for our early backers: Wee Stand on Kickstarter
Q: Where can I buy it?
A: We are very excited to be launching on Kickstarter May 18th, 2021!
Q: Why are you crowdfunding?
A: We have already begun small scale manufacturing. We are crowdfunding to gauge interest in Wee Stand and to help fund a mass production run.
Q: What is unique about Wee Stand technology?
A: Wee stand is the lightest ultra-portable music stand available anywhere. It folds flat for easy transport and Wee Stand is the ONLY portable music stand that can go from tabletop to full standing height in seconds.
Q: What are the dimensions and weight of Wee Stand?
A: When folded, the stand is 29.3cm x 8.3cm x 3.4 cm. Our tension-lock legs let you easily adjust to 6 different heights and it has a full standing height of 123cm.
Q: How strong is Wee Stand?
A: Don’t let the size fool you! Wee Stand’s carbon fibre legs can bear up to 10kg of weight; the media plate can hold even heavy songbooks.
Q: How durable is Wee Stand?
A: Made of durable glass-infused, post-consumer plastic, stainless steel, and light yet mighty carbon fibres, Wee Stand is designed to last.
Q: How do you set up Wee Stand?
A: Link coming soon!
Q: Why does the centre leg come forward, instead of back, like a tripod?
A: Great question! This is a product feature that we spend a lot of time testing and exploring. We ended up going with a centre leg coming towards the user for three reasons:
Q: Does it have page retainers?
A: The media plate can support a variety of types of physical sheet music – from single sheets to full books and binders. Please see the attached picture for a few of them in action!
Q: Can it hold an iPad when it is angled up?
A: Yes, a tablet can be used with the angled media plate! The angle at which the hinge can support it depends on the weight of the tablet (heavier tablets will lead to a reduced maximum angle of support).
Q: Does the stand have clamps for an iPad?
A: Tablets can be placed directly on the media plate shelf or behind the swivel clips for more security.
Q: Is the base of the plate big enough to hold a 500 page fake book?
A: The swivel clips for keeping books open of the media plate is designed to support books and folders up to 1” thick. Assuming it measures under that, we would fully expect the fake book to work with Wee Stand. Please see attached video of stand in use with a binder full of sheet music.
