A 10-year-old trombonist Matthew, who suffers Erb’s Palsy but has a wonder ear
for music, received the best Christmas present  ever this year, thanks to the combined
efforts of HERCULES Stands, and The Cory Band.

Contact was made by Strings and Things Ltd, the UK distributor of HERCULES Stands
and the skilled R&D team came up with a clever solution for Matthew. A handmade and
unique clamp, which can hold Matthew’s trombone firmly, was put on Hercules MS401B
microphone stand  and sent to the UK for him.

“With the modified stand and clamp, he can play and practice his new instrument with greater independency. My heartfelt thanks to everyone involved,” said Diane, Matthew’s mother.
