Music Instrument Storage

Shelving to store musical instruments, large and small.

We’ve worked with hundreds of music programs in high schools and universities across the country to help them store their musical instruments. We can help you with open shelving, locked storage, or even smart lockers for spaces with students coming and going.

How we can help your music department

  • Cabinetry designed to store instruments, from Tubas to Trombones
  • Secure storage when you need it, open shelving where you don’t
  • Locker systems for students to keep their gear and instruments for easy storage
  • Cabinets designed with acoustics in mind for when your storage and practice share the same space

Your design of the shelving units for our drum line equipment, jazz band equipment and other miscellany has helped us retain more classroom space. The shelving systems are sturdy, and are able to hold more than enough weight for our purposes. I give you and your company my highest endorsement.

Band Instrument Storage

Large instrument storage for your band

Instruments weren’t designed to be stored, they were designed to be played. It isn’t easy to put a drum on a shelf or a cello in a locker, but you need somewhere to safely store them when they aren’t in use. We design custom shelving tailored to your needs, so your students will have a place to keep their instruments, and your space will stay tidy and organized.


  • Adjustable shelving
  • Optional depths of 24″, 30″, and 36″
  • Widths of 24″, 30″, 36″, 42″, 48″, 54″, 60″,  and 72″
  • Bottom shelf level can be open to the floor, so your Timpani and other items can roll right in!

Band Lockers


Lockers can be used for both marching band gear or securing instrument storage in your music room. These lockers can be designed to store instruments, as well as marching band or choir garments.

  • Instruments are for sound. Our lockers are for security with solid wood, or grill doors.
  • Lockers are offset to dampen unwanted sounds in the practice room.
