RAT Stands The Opera Stand
The RAT Stands The Opera Stand with classic tray and Mains Trio Opera Light is designed with the orchestra pit in mind, this stand has a warm touch, chip resistant black finish and is acoustically neutral. It was first produced in 1976 and is still the only music stand in the world to feature an integral light. The light output is held at the perfect distance from the music tray and is carefully controlled so that it falls on the score and nowhere else. RAT Stands' timeless original design allows the cable to be managed all the way down to the ground and is fully compatible with all RAT Stands' lights and stand accessories.
The best lamp on any music stand anywhere! The Trio gives more light, of better quality and with greater control than any other music stand light on the planet. The Trio is the face of a complete music stand lighting system which provides every conceivable option for control and power delivery.
The Opera Stand Features
Super-tough black nylon coating makes the stand a pleasure to touch and, unlike other coatings, never chips.
The solid base gives added stability. Rubber feet ensure 3-point contact on uneven surfaces whilst protecting your floor and preventing clatter.
The special mounting socket enables the lamp to be easily removed in seconds.
Storage hooks eliminate excess cable trailing around the floor.
Constant friction is maintained by powerful springs in the friction joints of the tray and lamp which means they stay automatically at whatever angle you place them – there are no knobs to fiddle with or lose, and they will never go slack.
Opera Stands nest, with or without lamps, for compact storage.
Attaches to The Opera Stand by sliding the arm of the lamp into the socket of the stand and tightens with an allen key.
High Quality LEDs
32 state of the art low voltage LEDs give exceptionally bright and even illumination over the entire score. LEDs are virtually indestructible and never wear out, so you will never again have to change a bulb in the middle of a performance.
Minimum Light Spillage
Very slim housing does not obstruct the musician’s view of the conductor. Precision light guides ensure excellent cut off of the light resulting in minimal light spillage.
Colour and Brightness Control
Colour temperature of the light can be varied between 2700K and 4000K. Brightness and colour temperature can be controlled by the musician (using the thumb wheels on the lamp), or by the lighting desk. Control by the lighting desk has priority over control by the musician.
Reduced power consumption and consequent reduction in air conditioning load means using this light is environmentally friendly. Over the lifetime of the product lower electricity bills and the absence of bulb replacements costs will repay your initial investment. Runs off a 24V power supply for electrical safety.
Mains or Battery Powered
Can be powered by batteries, or by mains power using the appropriate PSU – see the Power Options tab at the top of the page. When powered by batteries, the light progressively warns the user when the battery is running low, giving plenty of time to change the battery without plunging the musician into darkness.
When powered by the PSU, lights can be connected to the PSU in a star configuration or in a daisychain.
Control by the lighting desk can be by Powerline Control (when powered by the DMX PSU) or by the optional radio receiver (when powered by battery). Under Powerline Control, the optional Zone Control System enables lights to be assigned to 8 different groups each with its own DMX address for brightness.
With the optional Radio receiver, each light can be assigned its own unique DMX address for colour and brightness.
A coiled cable from the lamp to ground level enables the stand height to be adjusted without detaching the cable from its hook at the base of the stand.
