May Monoposto and Biposto Contour Hinge Carriers

May Monoposto and Biposto Contour Hinge Carriers

MAY® Contour Hinge Carriers offer the best sizing, flexibility and ergonomic design for better fit and comfort; hinge technology allows carriers to become one with the player while remaining secure and durable enough for the daily rigors of marching field drills. Say Goodbye to J-Rods! MAY Monoposto and Biposto Carriers incorporate freedom of movement, allowing elaborate maneuvers that are essential to any contemporary band performance. Mounting posts and drop and lock features provide stability, a limitless range of playing positions, and easy adjustment on the fly. The adjustable back bar with May Comfort Air System™ can be tailored to ensure a tight fit between the front and the back of the shoulders, giving the drummer unparalleled control of the drum. Black powder-coated magnesium shoulder and back bar supports are padded for long-lasting comfort. Two pivot points on May Contour Hinge™ outline the upper and lower body of the player. The May Tubular Technology™ supplies a flexible, lightweight structure with unrivaled strength. An ultra-light polycarbonate abdomen plate is virtually free floating, bearing no torque weight from the drum. May’s Monoposto/Biposto Bridge transfers all the sheer and torque load to the tubes—away from the abdomen plate—improving rigidity and stability to the instrument for a more reliable playing environment. All MAY Monoposto and Biposto carriers fold to about half their original size for easy transport and storage. Swivel arm adapters allow the 10/12/13/14 drum array to fit to an existing Biposto tenor rail; the Variable Distance Positioning System encourages further flexibility with distance ranging to and away from the player. Shoulder flexibility is supplied by camber (left and right) and caster (back to front) adjustments and an adjustable back bar (Adjustable back bar only available with marching tom set carriers). A nylon roller system allows for quiet lift-front capability and quick, easy removal of the drum from the carrier; for larger players, negative tilt is available from the special shape of the carrier-side hinge, which is made of strong, lightweight aluminum parts. The patented MAY® free-floating snare hinge eliminates drum shell contact, resulting in virtually no mechanical or sonic stress to the drum shell; lift-front capability tilts for proper playing angle. Comfort Core Cushions use a combination of two different types of foam in insolated cubes for comfortable and self-adjusting support.
