What do I pay for shipping?

Shipping costs are substantial considering a CStand weighs about a kg. Unfortunately the costs only increase when the weight increases. Sending two stands overseas almost doubles the costs. You always pay for a contribution in the actual costs. Your benefit is that shipping costs will not increase when your order -and thereby the actual shipping costs- do. Check the zone of your country in the list below.

LOCAL:            € 4,95 per order
EUROPE1:       € 9,95 per order

About our stands

Where are CStands made?

The entire production takes place in our own factory in The Netherlands. Wood comes in, stands come out. “Made in Holland” has never been more appropriate.

Who designed CStands?

All models are designed by Chris van der Schoot, founder and ceo of CStands.

“….The love for my guitar doesn’t stop at the instrument”

Is a CStand stable enough?

Looking at the design you might think that stability was a minor issue for us. On the contrary! We have made dozens of proto types and it all comes down to simple fysics. We coorperate with laws of nature (gravity) instead of fighting them.

Are CStands really All wood?

Indeed they are. However -as anyone can see- there are two non-wood materials; 4 plastic (Polyethyleen) feet to protect your floor and cork to protect your instrument. That’s it. Even the folding construction of model AC is 100% wood.

Is my nitrocellulose finish safe?

As safe as it can be. Our main reason to use cork instead of rubber is the absence of vaporizing plasticizers (solvents to keep rubber flexible). Cork is non-slipping by nature a keeps your instrument in a firm and lacquer safe grip.

How do I maintain my CStand?

All Cstands are completely covered in Liseed oil and don’t require any special care. If you feel your stand could use some shine just use an ordinary wood polish according it’s instructions. Be sure to skip the cork.
