RE: The tariff classification of a collapsible musical instrument stand from China

Dear Mr. Heck:

In your letter dated May 24, 2001, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The article in question, model 533, is a 3-tier collapsible keyboard instrument display stand made of tubular steel. The stand is designed to be placed on the floor and used as a dealer point-of-sale display for a keyboard.

You suggest that the stand should be classified as metal furniture under subheading 9403.20.0020, HTS. However, as collapsible musical instrument stands for keyboards are specifically provided for in chapter 92, the proposed subheading is not applicable.

The applicable subheading for the collapsible musical instrument stand, model 533, will be 9207.94.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for collapsible musical instrument stands for the musical instruments of heading 9207. The rate of duty will be 5.7 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist George Kalkines at 212-637-7073.
