Carriers/Harness

Overview

Randall May Carriers are the most innovative and technologically advanced carriers available in the world. Based on decades of research and development from both the marching percussion arena and various other sporting categories, every carrier in the May product line is designed with health, performance, and durability in mind. 

May carriers are divided into 4 distinct categories:

Randall May Posto Series (Best suited for High School, College/University, Drum Corps, Indoor Percussion, and professional groups)

Randall May Aluminum Tubular Series (Best suited for non-competitive Jr.High/Middle Schools, budget minded groups, entry-level performers)

Randall May Petite Series (Best suited for Elementary Schools, Jr.High/Middle School, smaller body performers)

Randall May Pipe Band Series (Best suited for Pipe Band, Scottish Drumming, European-Style Drumming, Traditional-Style Drumming)

Each category is created to provide a genre specific product line that is best suited for that percussive environment. When choosing a carrier, it is best to match the carrier to the expected genre and average performer that will be using the items.
