The first thing you need to determine when picking out a stand for your keyboard is which stands are sturdy enough. Some keyboards are very heavy, especially if they have weighted keys. Luckily, we offer keyboard stands with a maximum weight capacity of up to 400 pounds. These stands with upper-end weight ratings take into consideration that you may be incorporating up to 3 tiers. Plus, you're going to be pounding on the keyboards which they’re holding. With this in mind, be sure to add some overhead into your weight requirements.
We have several styles of keyboard stands for your consideration. Furniture style piano stands are very strong and come as exact matches for some popular models. Many are completely compatible with standard pedal controllers, as well as full pedal boards used by old-school organ emulators. What we call X- and Z-style stands are extremely popular. These set up quickly with locking settings and are incredibly strong with features such as double bracing. These styles are also great for DJ gear and mixers. Column style stands have a central post and are very popular. They look sharp on stage and can safely handle multiple tiers of keyboards. They break down quickly as well.
We also have some truly indispensable accessories for enhancing most popular stands. One of the most popular are cup holders. These attach easily to most keyboard stands, and once you have one you won't know how you ever got by without one. Another great feature is a microphone holder — no need to lug around an awkward boom stand tucked in wherever you can make it work. Another attachment that has become very popular is a set of mounting clamps for securely holding your laptop. This is extremely convenient if you're controlling software synths via your keyboard's midi output. Many of our stands and accessories fold up compactly and fit snuggly into a strong bag with reinforced handles.
