30 January 2012
Summary: Most of the places I play are real dives, hole in the wall type places, there was now way I was going to spend a lot, my other equipment cost enough, this stand will work, the lower level is better for a keyboard, the upper, anything but that, fine for holding song list and lightweight stuff, not that it won't support the weight, it will, it's only that the support arms help to keep it in place on the lower level.
Summary: Stands like this usually are more expensive, This one had the right price, cheap! The main reason I purchased it was to hold my equipment secure, and it definitely does a good job. Strong stand, adjust ok, but does hold locked positions secure. Like that it folds flat for transport, setup/takedown quick. Decent stand in all.
Summary: I read the reviews so i wasn't too shocked that there were some small imperfections. The adjustments have decent range and the lock-in adjustments stay put when i change them. The size is right for two keyboards and the rubber end of the arms keep the keyboard from sliding around really good. Stands can be really high priced so, this one, even with it's little flaws- wiggles around a little, light weight metal- was the right one for me.
Summary: Let's just say you get what you pay for. It is a sloppy made stand, seemingly just thrown together, welded and then powder coated. The top tier really is extremely difficult if not impossible to get level due to misalignment of the locking teeth mechanism during welding. HOWEVER it is rugged, and GETS THE JOB DONE, (If you can manage to level out the second tier with spacers or something), not to mention it looks pretty decent.
Summary: This is NOT a quality keyboard stand. The arms of the second tier are different lengths and it's impossible to get them completely level. I contacted the seller to return it and they were very prompt and courteous in their reply... and with good reason. I took the package to UPS only to discover that even using the cheapest shipping option, it was going to cost $26 to ship it back. I doubt many customers follow through on the return once they've done the math.
