Bespoke wooden hand made Kora stand, made up here in solid oak hardwood (available in a range of woods, see last photo).
Stand is crafted with a high level of workmanship, using high grade wood. This stand enables the musician to play the Kora standing up, hands free. The instrument is well supported on the stand, as it is held in place by a rear dowel to support the body and a front slot to place the neck of the instrument through (see photos). On the front of the stand are 2 rotating holding bars that stop the Kora from moving once in place.
This stand was designed and developed for a professional Kora player (with a series of product testing sessions), who now uses the stand in his live performance, as he needs his hands free to move between instruments quickly
All wood will be treated with oils to achieve a high quality finish (see options below).
You will be contacted once you have placed an order to establish exact sizes of your instrument. We can also discuss making stands for other acoustic instruments, please email us first before completing the order.
As each stand is made to your specific requirements, please allow up to 14 days dispatch time. Package will arrive flat packed and well wrapped if you choose a postage option.
Delivery is made through myHermes which can be tracked.
All parcels are insured to the value of the stand and a signature will be required when delivered. Alternatively, you can collect the stand from Urmston in Manchester or it can be delivered locally (within a 30 mile radius), fully assembled.
