What's Your Favorite Keyboard Stand?

Post by synthRodriguez » Mon Jun 01, 2009 1:06 am

I've been using the Quiklok stuff, but I think it'd be pretty slow to setup and teardown on stage. Works great for the studio though, no wobble, and versatile.

Used to use the A-frame stuff back in the day before I went totally remote with a KX-5 and DX-100. What's everybody like using these days for stands?

I'm using an Ultimate Apex 2 tier stand.It's a breeze to set up, and can hold the weight of my Korg 01/w pro. Nice too, that's it's got a built on mic stand.Image

I second the vote for Apex. But only for live use - standing. In the studio, I don't care for them much. I much prefer having tilted tiers when sitting.

Ultimate Deltex for studio and live, with an extra clamp and arms to hold 3 synths

Also have an A-frame in the studio, but only because I bought it first
mostly enjoying adventures in sound :)

Not to hijack, but I'm currently looking for a double-tier for the studio.

Anyone using the Quik Lok Z-726?? Anything to report, good or bad?

^ Having a hard time ordering one of those!

Has anyone in the US been able to procure one of those box-style Jaspers Alu Systems keyboard stands like OriginalJambo posted above?

Thomann carries the Jaspers line but doesn't seem to have this style. I've emailed Jaspers but have yet to receive a response. Any American distributors?

I have a Standtastic three tier in the studio. It's very solid and adjustable.

Live I've been using an On-Stage Stands Z-style dual-tier. I love it because it's solid, but it takes time to tear it down and set it up. It would work great in the studio as well. In fact, I'll be buying another next week for that purpose.
