About Us

What do we do?

If you have ever moved on a wood or metal riser, stage, or conducting platform, you know that they can create some objectionable noise.  Standing on FeatherBlock is like standing  on solid ground, providing STABILITY and QUIET you won’t find anywhere else in today’s risers, staging, or podiums.  How?  We completely fill the interior cavity of our FeatherBlock systems with EPS foam, eliminating any unwanted vibrations to occur within the module – no other manufacturer can claim this.  All FeatherBlock products have the ITP Quad-Ripple anti-skid finish on the top and bottom surfaces, ensuring that you will not slip while walking across the surface of the systems.

All of our FeatherBlock systems come fully assembled (besides the optional safety railing for our conductor podiums) with no need for tedious adjustments for storage. With no pinch-points common in other systems and a lightweight construction, FeatherBlock modules are easily moved or stored using two to four persons per module.

Core Lite Industries LLC is committed to creating a product that is unlike any other in the portable riser, stage, or conducting market. Our FeatherBlock systems offer a vibration-eliminating, lightweight, and good-looking alternative to traditional risers, stages, or podiums.  Check them out today!

Testimonials from Our Customers:


Drummers searching for a multi-purpose drum riser that offers not only the support and portability needed for live performance but also a riser which functions to control lower frequency overtones and resonance in the practice/studio environment need to take a serious look at this product…I really can’t imagine any performing drummer who wouldn’t love this riser, and for performers/producers looking for something to help control overtones and resonance in the studio, this stage/riser should be an asset.

Everything is great…they are functioning exactly as we’d hoped. Sturdy, silent, easy to move. Great product.

We are very pleased with the risers. They are very quiet, which was of primary concern. If we had twice as much space we would gladly place another order from you. Thanks again!

I have used the “FeatherBlock Ultra” podium at our concerts this past year and truly love it!   It is a very solid, durable, and sturdy podium that allows me the comfort and confidence of knowing it will last a long, long time.  It performs so well we purchased another for our rehearsal hall!  Great product – thank you.

We like it.  The main reason we went with it was the quiet/no creaking.
In that areas it does not disappoint.  Thanks!
