After several years as a "pit parent" for my kids' high school band, I decided that stronger percussion frames were sorely needed. I had made numerous repairs on the stands and carts and knew that I could build a better one. I have been a welder for most of my life. I spent 15 years assembling and disassembling nuclear weapons using special tooling and procedures. I have over 10 years of experience welding and fabricating, as evidenced by the BBQ pit, cannon, and air boat that I built. I began taking and filling orders from band directors in the Texas panhandle and now have expanded throughout the U.S.
