The “Wind Wynder”- what a great idea!

Just when you thought that nothing new has been invented to make life easier for a musician, along comes a new idea to make life easier for the musician!

I recently ran across this novel and brilliant idea for making pages stay on your music stand during an outside, windy concert. This unique accessory was designed and is being produced by Co- founder Mary Semerzakis-Tolokan. I’m sure that the market for clothes pins will suffer greatly as this device continues to become popular.

To get a better idea as to how this works, check out the video below.

    That’s pretty cool Bruce, but $29! I have been using magnets. Love them and the conveniently store right on the lip of my stand. I made mine with a set of strong magnets, wing nuts and jb weld putty. The magnets are strong enough to hold through an entire concert of music and the folder. To cut down on the clicking sound of the magnet on my stand, I glued felt on the face of my stand. I may put a couple sets of the Wind Winders on my Christmas list though.

      Great ideas.
      The complany is sending me a set so that I can try them first hand and do a review on how they work.
