anyone can tell me of a good one? the one I have is s**t. its an "onstage" brand. I want to set it on fire.

Or something that can suit my needs, but I'd like something with three levels...

In my experience the best stands are Standtastic.

I heard K├Ânig & Meyer do the best ones. I passed close to buying one than chose I didn't need a 3 tier stand. If I would have bought one it would have been this one.

I have several On Stage 3 tier stands and nave had any issues. I've algo got a couple of "X" style 3 tier stands - no issues. Lastly, I've got an USS Apex stand I've had for 20+ years that I added a 3rd tier to with the extra long arms/bars - no issues except there's no place to store the 3rd set of arms/bars when not in use and there's not really a comfortable place to place pedals on the floor.

I have heard from many people that the Standtastik stands are extremely sturdy, but my only gripe there isn't too much space left on the floor for pedals - through there is more room than with Apex columns.

Am I right in assuming that playing keys and knob-twiddling on a 3rd tier isn't too comfortable, especially for a shorter fellow like myself?

True, but I plan to have my xpander on the third tier. It's really easy to program and with the current 3 tier I have, theres no issues with programming it while sitting on a stool. Other than the few patch programming scenarios, the xpander doesnt need to be twiddle with as much as other instruments.

I think standtastic so far seems up my ally. Not sure if I want to try wall moutning some stuff. Could free up a lot fo space, which is a neat idea.

I did the Standtastic wall-mount. I saved a lot of money by using standard industrial strut from Home Depot though.

Oh I wasn't saying it is awkward or uncomfortable. I've never tried a 3-tier but have considered one for the same space-saving reasons as you. So Im just interested in the cons. A height-adjustable stool is a pretty good idea.

Con wise, its spacey if you dont put some thought into it first. Cheap plastic is bullshit, and weight capacity is a serious restriction depending on the brand. The onstage stuff I have is ok, but cant hold as much per tier as I was hoping. Whatevs happens.
