STADIUM HARDWARE BY MAY®
With Stadium Hardware promoting correct playing technique, your drumline will literally elevate to a higher level of sound and visual performance. Yamaha’s Stadium Hardware by May is an instrument suspension system that will save wear and tear on your marching percussion, and the marching percussionist.
Unique Tripod System
A unique tripod system allows one of the legs to adjust independently of the other two. This ensures stable support of the instruments, even when used in bleachers. What does this mean? Percussionists can easily go from carrier to bleacher to band room without sacrificing playing technique or sound quality. Now, marching percussion can be used on carriers and stands in every situation, both inside and outside. This translates into less wear and tear on the gear, and less money coming out of the instrument repair budget.
Proper Playing Technique
Stadium Hardware is height adjustable to encourage proper playing technique for all players regardless of the setting: drumline rehearsals, standstill performances, football bleachers and basketball pep band performances.
When set up on a flat surface, the snare, tom and bell/xylophone stands are intentionally tilted back to bring the center of gravity over the base of the stand. This brings the instrument closer to the player and prevents the stand from tipping over. With the ATS™ technology, the same concept can be applied when used in bleachers.
By using lightweight aluminum tubing and folding tripod, transport is a breeze. Manufactured to precise tolerances and utilizing stainless steel nuts and bolts, Stadium Hardware is maintenance-free and designed for a lifetime of smooth operation.
