RealTraps News: New Stand Design, Stan Dubickas Rooms
In the face of rising inflation, RealTraps is helping our customers to save money with a new stand design. That, plus a fabulous RealTraps two-room home installation.
For many years RealTraps has offered two types of stands for situations where permanent mounting of our panels is not convenient or even possible. The RealTraps Stand lets you place panels anywhere in a room, where the less expensive Wall Stand is meant to lean against a wall or into a corner.
Unfortunately, the price of steel has risen more than 140 percent since 2020. To continue selling the original RealTraps Stands we'd have to increase the price to $300 each! So we came up with a new stand design based on steel pipes, similar to Wall Stands. Even better, we were able to avoid a price increase.
The new RealTraps Stands come in two styles: The lightweight model is based on 3/4-inch pipes and is suitable for use with MicroTraps, MiniTraps, and RFZ Panels. The other model uses 1-inch pipes, needed to hold the extra weight of MondoTraps, Fat MondoTraps, and RealTraps Diffusers. The lighter model is actually $40 less at $99.99, and the heavier type is the same $139.99. You can see more details in the RealTraps Stand Assembly page.
Another change we made to avoid a price increase is to offer the stands unpainted in a satin steel finish, instead of powder coated in several colors. This new finish looks great for both RealTraps Stands and Wall Stands, and matches all of our frame and fabric colors perfectly.
RealTraps recently treated two rooms for Stan Dubickas, an award-winning professional photographer who's also an audiophile with a keen set of ears. Stan was thrilled with the results, so we'll let him take over from here:
RealTraps was founded in 2003 by Ethan Winer and Doug Ferrara, and is now owned and managed by longtime employee Sean Kollar. Sean handles the day-to-day operations at the factory, and Ethan still pitches in to help customers with technical and pre-sales advice by phone and email. Ethan is well known throughout the audio industry for his technical articles in audio and computer magazines, and his popular book The Audio Expert published by Focal Press is now in its second edition. Sean is amazing whether building RealTraps, or playing the drums and electric guitar.
