"Great digital piano stand!"

I own a Casio PX-560. I love this instrument- BUT since I play out I needed a portable, FIRM, good looking stand. The Casio stand is not portable unless you have a van or large SUV, and frankly it looks kind of "wimpy". In fact I was using a Casio CGP-700 stand which is even worse since I was carrying around the speakers which I could not use. I looked at all the stands available. It is obvious that one or two companies make stands, then sell them to different firms with various names on them! Things are compounded by the fact that the Casio instruments have a steel reinforcing bar under the piano. This prevents the piano from sitting flat, sooooo you have to have something that supports the piano and takes this into consideration, OR you have to modify the stand. I chose to buy a quality stand that looks good and supports the piano firmly and is portable. The K&M stand (in white) filled the bill. This stand is modern looking, allows plenty of legroom under the stand, AND is rock solid! NOW, I had to have custom made two steel bars that run the length of the piano. These bars support the PX-560 fully so I could remove the steel bar under the piano. I measured carefully and had two slots milled out of these bars, so they fit perfectly on the two arms that support the piano on the K&M stand. Now, was this a bit of work and cost- YES. BUT- now I have a rock solid stand that looks great and is easily portable. IF, you have a piano that has a metal frame: Korg-Nord-Kawai etc you will not need these modifications I made. But for me it was worth it. What good is a stand if the piano is bouncing around? The K&M is a great choice, it is built like a tank, yet is not heavy, and it looks great. If your serious about your playing, this is THE stand.
OK this is a stand, but since the keyboard remains firmly in place, you are probably going to play better- and sound better!
Steel- steel- and ROCK SOLID. Available in three colors- simply quality!
Ease of Use
It takes about 2 minutes to set this up- and that consists of tightening two large hand screws! Some reviews commented that the instructions were in German. Yes, they are in German on the first page, but two pages over you have English. Perhaps they had an all German version.
I have already commented- steel and rock solid!
IT'S WORTH IT! Or would you rather play on a stand where your keyboard is bouncing around all night?
Have never dealt with K&M so I have no experience.
The Wow Factor
