A "Grade A" Factory second folder will have small flaws that don't allow it to pass quality control. It might relate to closed alignment, a scratch, a stitching issue or some issue with the cover material, but should not be visible to the audience at a choir concert, and saving 25% on these should be considered a very good value.
Created nearly 25 years ago, the Standard Black Folder is renowned as a sturdy, lightweight, comfortable music folder. Elegant and durable, its first tactile impressions are of quality and value that will last. While the Standard Black Folder opens wide to an ideal angle for singers, note that both conductors and singers love the similar '‘Deluxe Black Folder'’, which further opens flat. This folder can be customized to your needs and is often popular with large ensembles.
