Gigbag: September 2002

RMV Brazilian Instruments

By becoming the sole U.S. distributors of RMV instruments, Latin Percussion has added a line of Brazilian instruments to its already large stable of hand-percussion products. Finely crafted from beautiful woods and quality metals, these lightweight tantans, pandieros, caixas, timbas, tamborims and all their Brazilian brothers and sisters are exactly what you need to help re-create the hypnotic sambas on those classic Stan Getz/Charlie Byrd Verve sides. www.lpmusic.com

Petersen Folding Music Stand

It’s designed to hold a concert-stand light and it’s built to accommodate oversized scores and it’s height-adjustable like it should be, but what makes the Petersen Stand special is that it transforms into a self-contained carrying-case. Made from plastic and aluminum alloy, the stand weighs only 3 1/2 pounds. Accessories available from Petersen include a 7-inch height extender and a deluxe shoulder bag for hands-free transport. www.petersendesigns.com
