10x10 tent with 3 optional side panels
In this photo our tent was being used for a wedding ceremony on a chilly October day. The panels cut the wind and enclosed the space allowing our heaters to increase the temperature a few degrees for the safety of our instruments. Our violist and first violinist also have carbon fiber instruments for outdoor events.
Here our tent allowed a September ceremony to continue even in a light mist. Guests usually don't mind a little mist but our instruments consider it their nemesis. This can be the trickiest weather to make the indoor/outdoor call but with our trusty tent, it's an easy no-brainer.
On a beautiful day here is what our tent looks like without any side panels. It did a great job of protecting our instruments from acorns, bird droppings and spiders. Yes, little baby spiders! They were trying to spin their webs on everything.
