Manhasset Specialty Company, a leading manufacturer of music stands and accessories, is celebrating 85 years of producing quality music stands and accessories for use by musicians of all levels — from beginners to professionals who are members of world-famous orchestras all around the world.
The Manhasset Specialty Company dates back to 1935, when inventor/musician Otto Lagervall set out to develop a better music stand and created the very first Manhasset music stands. When the company was founded, Lagervall lived in Manhasset, NY, adopting the name of that city for his new company. During the 1940s, Lagervall moved the company to Yakima, Washington, where the company continues to make products today.
“Over the years, the company has introduced many new music stand designs and new accessory products that have become great sellers,” said Dan Roberts, president and general manager of Manhasset Stands. “We are constantly searching for new material improvements and new processes that will help make our great quality music stands even more durable and dependable.”
