Whether you're in your studio recording, or performing in front of thousands, you know how important it is to have a good music stand. Sweetwater is your one-stop-shop for all your music stand needs. We offer the best stands at great prices.
At Sweetwater, we know that every musician needs great accessories. It would be a shame for your music to suffer because the quality of your gear is lacking. That is why we take care to offer only the best accessories. When it comes to music stands, we want your stand to work with you, not against you. If you have trouble figuring out which music stand would be the best choice for your specific needs, we are here to help!
Music stands come in an extensive array of shapes and sizes, but the first thing to look for in your new stand is sturdiness. Do you often perform live? Having your stand topple over mid-performance simply won't do! Your music stand needs to be able to securely hold your charts or books. Buy one of our heavier metal tripod stands and you'll never have this problem again. For live performances, we recommend avoiding hollow or plastic stands, as they tend to work best for lighter-duty applications. Nearly all of our stands have tripod bases, and if you want to really be sure your stand won't topple over, look for stands with a wide base. These stands won't budge even if you bump into them.
Do you need to travel with your music stand often? Sweetwater carries an array of collapsible stands which are easily portable and are designed to take up little space. They are lightweight, which makes them a bit less sturdy than non-collapsible stands, but they are also inexpensive.
Your choice of music stands also depends on which instrument you play. Are you a drummer? Get one of our 16” stands. These can easily be attached to drum hardware and racks, so your stand won't budge even when subjected to your most vigorous drumming. Guitar players, on the other hand, should check out our stands with some extra space for your pick, pencils, pens and other accessories. Many stands can also have their height adjusted, which is a nice feature for certain instruments.
As far as materials go, Sweetwater carries all the most popular options. Many players prefer metal stands for their sturdiness. Plus, you can use magnets to secure your notes onto the stand. Wooden stands are another popular choice. They weigh a bit less than metal ones, but are aesthetically pleasing and quite sturdy. Plastic and wire stands are noted for their collapsibility.
Once you decide on a music stand, build it out with some of our accessories. Do you need some extra space? Grab one of our side extensions! They are easily attached and detached to your main stand. And if you want to carry and store your stands safely, we also carry a large selection of tote bags and cases.
