I have a very important question for I&S regarding the sealing of these stands....
Purpleheart wood has this tendency to not stay purple. I see in the description that you use shellac to seal these stands, but shellac does NOT block UV light (which is a big factor in causing purpleheart to turn brown). Any chance you can do a UV sealant instead for those stands? I'd pay the extra.
I've gleamed this info from the wood-database:

How about this luxurious wooden banana stand instead? I must say my Fostex doesn't look too shabby :D

Not bad at all! And you don't have to worry about the wood color changing over the years. :)

Looks good! Though I don't think that's $10 like the other one... if it was I would buy like 5 right now xD

Well then... I didn't realize the way the hook is angled. I don't think it'll be a good match for my K7XX. Such a shame.

I too, am interested and concerned about the purpleheart fading. Would you be able to make this change for this drop or are we talking in the future?

+1. I'd seriously consider the purplehearts as well, but am concerned about the fading. As pictured, the purpleheart version is beautiful.

We havnt started manufacturing the purpleheart or padauk headphone stands yet. I will make sure they are both UV protected for this drop and moving forward. 100% confirmed. thanks! @rantng

Sounds great. I am in for the padauk stand, and according to the wood database, padauk turns a very deep reddish brown (lighter pieces turn brownish gray) over time. I am wondering if that is your experience as well, since I will be fine with that final color.
Jul 25, 2016
It is hard to say since I havn't owned any of these woods for years. I can say all of the padauk we get is a very deep reddish orange so it should fade to reddish brown in the 10-15yr range. it will be treated with UV protectant so you can expect it to remain beautiful for years
