Very nice...although not without its blemishes.,
This review is from: Black Height Adjustable High Quality Twin X Frame Keyboard Stand With A Quick Pull Release Mechanism.
I am a jazz pianist and needed a robust, portable and attractive keyboard stand for gigs. This stand arrived quickly and lived up to its expectations.
Possibly the stand's greatest attribute is that it is extremely light, yet it is very robust, durable and able to maintain a heavy weight. It is incredibly portable and offers no transport problems as it folds down into a very manegable size. The piano stand looks discrete and professional, and the height adjustment is very easy to use.
However there are some (minor) problems. The rubber grips (that are on all the four ends of the stand) are prone to falling off - I have already lost one, unfortunately - and they feel a little tacky. The stand's height adjustment is good, but the range of heights is actually quite limited, and I have found that I am never truly comfortable when playing when using the stand, as it is either a touch too high or too low. It is perhaps no surprise that I am writing this review after having ordered an adjustable piano stool from Amazon, as I have become tired of asking for cushions to sit on at gigs because the piano is not quite in the right place.
The stand is almost 'flexible'. Although it is made out of metal, it adapts to the surface it is played on, which is tremendously useful when playing on grass or uneven surfaces. Provided you are playing from a relatively low height, the level of 'wobble' from hitting the keyboard is low, and I feel safe and secure when using it - I am never worried that it is going to collapse on me.
This stand offers you a lot for the price and is a great 'gigging' keyboard stand. If you are looking for a stand to use at home for your keyboard then I might recommend you look for something a little pricier, however I'm sure it suit a more 'static' environment. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase - it has made my life a lot easier and served me well without draining my bank balance. A great all-rounder!
