The RAT Stand was born in 1976 when one of the UK’s leading opera companies commissioned the design of an all new illuminated music stand. Since then 500 opera houses, theatres, concert halls and civic centres all over the world have come to value our music stands.
Our design philosophy is quite a simple one, to be inspired by world’s most demanding musicians to create the best possible music stands, lights and accessories. The result is a range of products that employ simple, beautiful designs and technically advanced materials to support new heights of artistic performance.
RATstands lights, music stands and conductor stands are now the preferred choice of leading music venues across the world, from Abbey Road Studios to the Metropolitan Opera House and Sydney Opera House.
