Yamaha Presents New Stands by Randy May International
— Exceptional New Stands Offer More Adjustability and Flexibility —
BUENA PARK, Calif. — Yamaha Corporation of America, Band & Orchestral Division, will present AIRLift Stadium Hardware by Randy May International at Winter NAMM 2009.

AIRlift Stand
Stadium Hardware
Manufactured exclusively for Yamaha, the line is comprised of four different models: RM-SHSA for Marching Snare Drums; RM-SHQA for Marching Toms; RM-SHBA for Marching Bass Drums; and RM-SHBXA for Multi Application Keyboards. Key features include AIRLift technology, effortless adjustment, durable construction and integration of all other aspects of current stadium hardware (including a unique tripod system), drop and lock technology, no-slip rubber feet, and a stabilizing bumper.

"This new series is truly one of a kind," says Troy Wollwage, marketing manager, Yamaha Percussion. "In today's marching percussion environment, stands are an important part of the equation. These new models offer superior adjustability and flexibility. Percussionists can now adjust the gear to their own needs—rather than the other way around."

Ideal for high school and college drumlines, the AIRLift Stadium Hardware combines AIRLift Technology—a revolutionary concept integrating an air suspended telescoping tube—along with Stadium Hardware's craftsmanship, which promotes correct playing technique. This innovative system will not only save wear and tear on marching percussionists, but will also elevate a drumline to a higher level of sound and visual performance.

The AIRLift Stadium Hardware will be available in January 2009.
