Custom Built Open Frame Speaker Stand Supports are hand made by the craftsmen at Custom Design and each pair takes approximately 5 hours to manufacture. Hand made, hand finished and hand polished with the attention to detail our customers expect and demand.
Custom Design have a skilled workforce with over 33 years of experience in design and the manufacture of high quality, high performance, specialist custom built Speaker Stand Supports, Hi-Fi Support Tables and Audio Visual furniture.
We design and manufacture in Newcastle upon Tyne, England and if you have a design or specific requirement which cannot be fulfilled by our extensive range of speaker support stands or Hi-Fi equipment supports, then we can manufacture it for you.
We were asked by Hi-Fi Worlds Editor David Price to manufacture a pair of speaker stands to his requirements, please read his thoughts below.
Custom design extra special - One of the most common questions that users of classic loudspeakers ask us is, where can I get some decent speaker stands? The trouble is, virtually all pre-eighties boxes were expected to sit either on the floor behind the settee or - if they were lucky - on a pair of appalling castor-based contraptions which were primarily designed to make the speakers easy to wheel behind the settee...These days, it s easier, as manufactures now recognise the stand as part of the equation, but there will still be times when a high quality, made-to-measure stand is required - enter Custom Design. Although the company makes a range of excellent off-the-shelf products, it can also fabricate bespoke stands to customers specifications. In the case of the stands shown, they were made for Yamaha NS 1000Ms, to take them 20cm off the floor and give a rock-solid support. The result was superb, these Custom Design frame stands getting a brilliantly firm bass from the Yamaha's, letting their mid range drivers breathe.
Their tubular design is quite reminiscent of the classic Linn Isobarik stands, being extremely rigid. Acoustic Steel sandwiching a polymer layer was used in parts, making the stands far quieter than they otherwise would have been. They can also be shot-filled too, and Custom Design can supply this at extra cost. Overall, the company displayed a superb level of craftsmanship - clean welds, excellent paint finish and perfect spike implementation made for a superb finished product.
If you've a special project in mind, or a bog-standard speaker you want a stand for, this is an excellent company to consider. Price varies according to the work commissioned of course, but they re extremely reasonable.
