Tear Down the Wall! ON-STAGE Welcomes Endorsement from Australian Pink Floyd, Becomes Comfortable Choice among Professional UsersOctober 02, 2012
10/2/2012 - Berlin, CT. On-Stage Stands is proud to announce a new artist endorsement from Jason Sawford, keyboardist and founding member of Australian Pink Floyd. Having sold over 3 million tickets in 35 countries, Aussie Floyd is hailed as the finest tribute band in the world. On riders and in their personal kits, a growing number of professional players are comfortable specifying the new batch of pro-level accessories from One-Stage stands. Sawford’s endorsement is the latest in a list of top-notch artists using On-Stage Stands and other TMP branded products.
Reproducing diverse, well-known, and unique Pink Floyd keyboard and synth sounds is one of the trickiest jobs in music. Sawford relies on four keyboards, sound units, samplers, and months of preparation to program each tour, and you’ll find On-Stage Stands supporting much of his impressive kit on the road. Currently on the US leg of the Exposed in the Light world tour, Sawford is relying on some of On-Stage Stands’ toughest products to get through a dense schedule of concerts.
Sawford’s On-Stage Stands gear includes the KS7365EJ and KS7350 Pro Heavy-Duty Folding-Z Keyboard Stands, along with the DT8500 Keyboard Throne and several other accessories. Simply put, the KS7365EJ is the strongest stand available from On-Stage Stands. It boasts a 400lb weight capacity plus an integrated second tier, an absolute must for a sophisticated setup like Sawford’s. The KS7365EJ was designed with touring professionals in mind, and much of its development included input from a team of industry pros. The KS7350 shares many of the features of the KS7365EJ but in a single-tier format. Both models are fully height and width adjustable, and both fold down into a compact bundle for easy transport.
With a tour schedule punctuated by back-to-back-to-back daily performances, comfort on stage is non-negotiable. Sawford chose the DT8500 throne for the Exposed in the Light tour. Its thickly padded seat and adjustable backrest provide excellent conformity and support, while a wide height adjustment range accommodates any playing style. Integrated footrests add to the overall comfort of this heavy-duty A-frame throne.
The combination of portability, real-world features, and durability makes On-Stage Stands pro-level products the choice of Jason Sawford and other touring musicians. On-Stage Stands is already a leader in the entry-level and semi-pro accessories market, and pro-level gear like the KS7365 EJ is just the beginning of a new breed of high-end products from The Music People.
