New from Black Cat Music are two new special purpose music stands – the K&M Sound Insulation Stand and the K&M extendable Conductor’s Stand .

For symphony orchestras seeking compliance with the European Union Noise Directive, then the K&M Sound Insulation Stand could prove helpful. A concave Plexiglass shield provides hearing protection for the musician stationed in front of other performers. The shield's practical prismatic 'V-block' connector makes it quick and easy to connect to the stand, which can be used on both sides, depending on requirements. A tripod arrangement ensures stability for this well constructed stand that is designed for a long product life. Height is adjustable from 90cm to 140cm.

Also added to the wide range of stands is the Extendable Conductor’s Stand, which is suitable for mobile or stationary use. Pull-out music racks on both sides extend desk dimensions from 57cm to 87.5cm x 35.5cm and are made from wood finished in black or natural beech. The stand upright is made of black powder-coated steel tubes, is quick and easy to set up and fold up and, with just two parts, is convenient to transport. Height is adjustable from 69 cm to 116 cm.
