"Solid and Economical"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I try to treat all my things with care, but as it always happens in a working band, sometimes things break. I really don't expect to have any trouble with this stand, as long as I remember to transport it properly. I could see how it might come apart if the second tier was not removed before transporting. I would purchase another one if this one broke, unless it just fell apart for no good reason. If I could have afforded an Ultimate or K&M, I probably would have bought one of those, but I am sufficiently satisfied with the OnStage... and the price was super!
Sounds good if you hit it with a spoon... nice percussion sound. :)
The item is exactly what the description indicates... a good, solid double keyboard stand.
Ease of Use
Assembling the stand was a small challenge, because I had no instructions. I was able to put it together in a few minutes though, before finding the instructions under the box on the floor. Still, it wasn't too hard to figure out, and it assembled into a solid piece of equipment. Otherwise, you just have to understand that you need to remove the second tier to transport the stand easily. It all folds nicely, if you take the time to do that.
I've had this less than a month, but it seems to be very solid. I have an M-Audio 88-key digital piano with a Roland 61-key Juno on the top tier. It's all very solid and sturdy.
This stand is certainly worth its price. The Ultimate or K&M stands are surely appealing, but sometimes twice the price. For a budget-conscious player, the OnStage is perfect.
I have never had to contact OnStage for any reason, and my band uses several of their products... PA speaker stands, mic stands, amp stands, guitar stands, keyboard and mixer stands.
The Wow Factor
The Ultimate and K&M stands are surely more sexy and appealing visually, but sometimes twice the price. For a budget-conscious player, the OnStage is perfect. And yes, it looks good too.
