Good for 20 yearsAfter more than 20 years of regular gigging my old Apex stand came apart. It was time to get a new one. The new updated stand is sweet. It looks slick and the boom screws in right on top and is not attached on the side. My old clamps and tribars still work on this model so I can add extra tiers. The mic boom extends and the entire unit fits well into the bag. This stand should last until I'm in the retirement home. Thanks Sweetwater and Ultimate Support

Stand or SitQuick and easy adjust on the height .. can be used in standing or sitting positions. Easy transport and looks great. I use the top teir to rest my music notebook on. I hang a small wire shelf below the bottom teir that holds the AC/DC box, power strip, mic spliter and excess cable. Got some LED lights also. Negs are when set up it is a bit awkward to move as the 3 legs don't lock in an up position and thus they swivel down if assembly is picked up. The front legs are just high enough in the middle to get the back half of my Roland sustain pedal under.. it's not exactly in the position I'd like, but good enough.

Very Nice StandYou know... I am using this stand as a DJ stand and not a keyboard stand. I place a carpeted board on the top and bottom arms and put my computer on the top and mixer on the bottom. It is very stable and looks awesome! no need for a table and cable managment is a snap! The microphone stand that is included is sturdy and fits well with the group. Very easy to setup and take down. It comes with a sturdy case and is not to heavy to transport. In conclusion...it is awesome for a keyboard stand or whatever you can dream up!!!

Great standI've only used it for on gig so far but the convenience of being able to store all parts within the stand is great. It makes for a real portable and sleek look. The only thin you can't store within the stand is the mic boom, but the stand comes with a gig bag where there is a place for the mic boom. Great stand!

overall, really good product that does the jobThis is a very good keyboard stand for the gigging musician. Set up is a breeze, as advertised. It is also very easy to transport, as everything fits into the provided gig bag. I have been using this at band practice and have not taken it on a gig yet, but my practice set up is similar to a gig, so I do not anticipate any problems. The provided mic boom is really awesome. This makes life so much easier, as you do not need to struggle with a separate mic stand, in addition to a key board stand. The boom is easy to adjust and it makes playing while singing so much easier and enjoyable. I have only two minor complaints. The first is that I would have preferred the stand to be a bit more stable. This is probably because I am using a very large keyboard. I have an 88 key Korg Kronos on the lower tier, and the stand does wobble just a little bit while playing. It does not affect my playing in any way, and I am not concerned about the strength or stability. I am confident that it will hold the keyboard safely. However, I would have preferred if there was no wobble at all. I have a smaller keyboard on the top tier. Here, I wish that the top tier could have been tilted a little, because it is a little difficult to see the display on the top keyboard at times. Again, it does not affect my playing, but I do have to move my head a little at times to get a clearer view of the display on the top keyboard. These are very minor quibbles, and I am perfectly happy with the stand. In fact I love it. It has made my playing much more easier and enjoyable. I highly recommend it. It is totally worth getting the Pro Plus model to get the mic boom and gig bag.

Has some cons, but I still use it. EASY set up.I've used on 15-20 gigs. I will continue to unless it becomes a problem or something better comes along. Definitely pros and cons. Pros: Love the intended design, especially for 1-niters; packs up small, sets up fast, looks great on stage, integrated mic stand = 1 less thing to haul. Cons. Iíve had to replace the boom twice, just buy an On Stage MSA7040TB and use the intended one somewhere else. They are not machined properly and threads do not match. Iíve broken the little stabilizer piece in transport - itís plastic. They quickly sent me another. It transfers sound from stage to the mic because itís hollow. I stuffed two short pieces of foam in it and that helped. Sound man has not complained since. It is possible for the legs to go too far into the stand at teardown. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE ALLEN WRENCH with you on the gig you will be hosed. Itís a pain to open the bottom because again, machining is not good. But 15-20 minutes will do it. Some people feel there is a lack of space for pedals. I donít. I stand and play and have volume and sustain and two other pedals, no problem. Summary: Great design, some bad machining. Despite what looks like a long list of cons Iíve gotten around them and proís still outweigh them for now.
