Stands



Baby Stands:
A stand designed with a 5/8" Pin at the top. Almost all lighting instruments under 2000 Watts in size are made to be mounted on a Baby Pin. Matthews manufactures a number of stands, both rolling and non-rolling such as the Baby Junior Stand in both double riser and triple riser. Century Stands, Matthews Kit Stands, and Beefy Baby Stands are all manufactured with a Baby Pin at the top. Matthews Combo Stands are now made with a Baby Pop Up Pin for greater flexibility.


C-Stands:
Also known as Century Stand, Grip Stand or Gobo Stand. Probably the most popular multi-purpose stand ever developed. Its unique "nesting" leg design allows many Century Stands to be used in very limited floor space.


Combo Stands:
When studios starting outsourcing their equipment needs, grip companies interacted with lighting companies to create a common denominator for existing mounting diameters. Out of that communication, the first "Combination" stand was born to hold both Reflectors from the Grip Department and Junior Lights from the Lighting Department.


Junior & Senior Stands:
Similar to Combo Stands in that they have a universal receiver with pop-up 5/8" male pin; these stands are made to hold larger fixtures, providing a stable, rolling base for Junior and Midsize lights.


Kit Stands / Revenger Stands:
Compact and lightweight stands ideal for assembling custom lighting kits; these stands are commonly found in photographer's lighting kits. Ideal for students, studio or location.


MAX Menace Arm:
A one-stop-shop menace arm - where others have to construct a rickety arm from pieces and parts, built by Key Grip Richard Mall. Academy Award Winner for Science and Technical Achievement, this boom arm allows for hanging a light fixture from a corner without requiring you to drill into the wall. Unique and cannot be found through any other manufacturer.


Monitor Stand:
Made primarily for use with Monitors although its baby pin will allow mounting of 5/8" fixtures. Features can include built-in casters and rocky mountain leg.


MT1:
Heavy Duty Tripod primarily used on mobile productions and sporting events. Strong, sturdy and robust camera support provides a stable platform for 'whip' pans and other rapid camera movements with no tripod jitter, twist or swaying.


Overhead Stands:
Developed for use with overheads and butterflies, these stands feature wide bases for increased stability and terminate in 4.5" Grip Heads.


Vator III:
Heavy Duty, dependable, safe cranking stands made for reliable, robust and large fixture support. Each stand is covered by a three year warranty under normal operating conditions (excludes wheels and tires).
