Description: The Multi-Frame II has replaced the Multi-Frame 2400, 2700, and 335.

Multi-Frame II

Reengineered for Field and Stage

Building on the success of our original Multi-Frame system, we have reengineered several features to make an even better product than before. Highlights of the Multi-Frame II system include 1-1/2'' square pipe on three sides of the instrument, stronger 6'' casters with in-line locking mechanism, height adjustment by pneumatic struts and a new easy-to-use clamp. Perfect for indoor and outdoor marching activities, stage-show pits, percussion solos, and percussion ensembles, the Multi-Frame II instruments are sturdy, convenient and practical. Four models are available, including an Acoustalon ™marimba, an Acoustalon xylophone and two vibes:


New compressed gas spring system
Makes height adjustment of the entire rack a quick and easy operation.

1-1/2 square pipes used for accessory bar
Provides non-slip shape for clamp to hold added components.

Accessory bar spans three slides
Allows more mounting locations for accessories and protects instrument frame.

Easy-to-use clamp
Makes set-up and tear-down simple.

Height adjustable frame
Pneumatic struts allow height adjustments to be made easily by one person.

Pipes are attached to front and both left and right sides of the system
Provides greater freedom in creating an easy-to-use percussion setup.

Heavy-duty 6 casters with in-line locking mechanism
Provides smooth rolling, durability, and locking security.

In-line locking mechanism on playing side casters
Easy on-off and unobtrusive when moving.

The system's simple design
Offers easy assembly or disassembly of the stand.

Sonic Tone Hole Design
Produces a remarkably wood-like, less glassy sound.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Lightweight yet strong, gas springs a major plus, clean and classy looking
Cons: Frame pieces sometimes have uncontrollable wobble

This is an excellent frame. It has a very clean, classy look, thanks in part to the gas springs providing all the support for height adjustment. The gas springs make raising and lowering the board a breeze, though sometimes the wingnuts work themselves loose, causing the board to spontaneously rise to its full height.

The rail is quite durable, and its method of attachment works pretty well, though we did have one of the posts break.

The clamps for this system are excellent, relying on the shape of the clamp itself, rather than on bolts and nuts, to support the loads applied.

The main problem with the frame is the lack of control with the angle of the endpieces. My board the past summer experienced problems with the low endpiece wobbling back and forth (twisting manner, not swaying), even though all the nuts and screws were tightened.

The black powdercoating also tends to scratch pretty easily.

All in all though, an excellent frame. Classy-looking, lightweight, sturdy, and easy to move.
