Keyboard Stands

Post by nvining » Tue Sep 08, 2015 11:02 pm

I need a keyboard stand that can hold the weight of my CS80. I would *like* a keyboard stand where I can mount something sizeable yet more modern overtop of the CS80 as a second keyboard (say, the Solaris or something). Right now I'm using a Broder industrial shelving unit from IKEA, but the damn things have been discontinued (and if anybody has any angled brackets for the L shaped configuration and shelves, I am happy to buy them off of you, BTW - the thing is fabulous), but I am trying to make my studio not suck this year and would like to clean things up.

So! What are you using with two stands that can hold about 300 lbs?

I've never needed a stand to hold that much weight and I can't think of any off the shelf keyboard stands that could do it.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

I mean, I *can* weld something; alternately, I can get something like a mitre saw stand or other construction equipment and adapt that to fit the purpose. I would also be interested to hear from people who have done things like that.

Do they not come with legs/stand?

Its legs disappeared a long time ago, I'm afraid.

For the edification of all: the winner is the Onstage KS-3765-EJ. I put the CS80 on the bottom, and presently a Solaris on the top, and it seems to have held up so far. (It's rated for 400 lbs, so you could probably put a Novachord on it.)
