Design meets quality with the Gravity brand, which helps emerging artists tear through their gigs without a hitch and gives the seasoned veterans of the industry the assurance they need to confidently rely on their equipment so they can focus on their audience, stated the company.

Easy-to-use features, a five-year warranty and countless replacement parts all come together as innovative techniques Gravity uses to better serve the musicians they want to support. Gravity’s new Touring Series set of stands lends a hand to the roadies that go constantly underappreciated by creating a bulkier stand with unique features that make for longer-lasting efficiency.
