This Ultra-stable X-stand Makes Setup Fast and Easy!

The IQ series redefines the X-style keyboard stand, bringing you a new level of stability and innovation. The IQ-3000 offers you a range of height settings for your playing comfort, whether you prefer to play sitting or standing up. This high quality X-style stand is ideal for supporting everything from lightweight synthesizers and MIDI controllers to the heaviest of professional keyboard workstations. It features Ultimate Support's patented Memory Lock system and unique stabilizing end caps, to give you timesaving onstage functions along with peace of mind of consistent performance. Like the rest of the IQ series stands, the IQ-3000 holds true to Ultimate Support's twofold commitment to provide uncompromising stability while offering a musician-centric, innovative design.

From its thick, oversized double tubing to its heavy-duty metal height adjuster, each component of the IQ-3000 was carefully selected for maximum strength and stability. This top-caliber IQ Series stand effortlessly supports your largest, heaviest keyboards, synthesizers, and professional workstations, securely holding loads up to 300 lbs. If you're a gigging musician, you'll love the IQ-3000's patented Memory Lock System. The Memory Lock System is a set-it-once solution that saves you time ensuring that every time you open in, the IQ-3000 will return to the height you set. You only need to lift and place your keyboard or piano the first time.

The IQ-3000 features an inventive off-set bracing system offers you nine height positions to comfortably accommodate your preferred sitting and standing position. This design feature gives you more knee room than any other double-braced stand, ensuring that the IQ-3000 remains out of the way and that only your keyboard stays in place during performances. An integrated stabilizing system levels out uneven surfaces and effectively eliminates annoying or possibly dangerous rocks and wobbles. There are rotating rubberized end caps with incremental thicknesses on the upper and lower tubes of the IQ-3000 to easily correct the problem, and thick rubber sleeves secure your keyboard on the upper tubes and keep the IQ-3000 firmly in place.

Sturdy as all h***

as a keyboard player that uses his stands as gymnastics equipment, this is the strongest stand i have ever used. it's able to support my MPK88 while i'm in a handstand or standing on top of the horizontal supports. i spend half of the entire set standing in the middle of the frame, and it doesn't flinch once. extremely sturdy and extremely stable.

Heavy Duty!

I have a Yamaha S90XS and it is a beast. The first thing I needed was a new stand that would hold it and this does the job. It is really heavy duty and well made. The reason I can't give it 5 stars is accessories. The tubes are 2 inches instead of the standard size, this gives the extra strength. Sweetwater has been unable to find accessories to hold a mic boom stand, etc. Construction is superb. It can be used either sitting or standing in very comfortable heights. Once position is set you can fold it for easy travel and maintain the setting, which is great. If they could only get the accessories to fit it. Still I am very pleased with this stand and it is very high quality. Would certainly trust other Ultimate products based on the quality of this keyboard stand.

Sturdy but only for standing?

Really sturdy, seemed like a good match for my big and heavy keyboard. At the lowest setting (28.75 inches according to the specs) and accounting for the keyboard's thickness, the keys are over 32 inches from the floor, which is quite higher than my piano and way too high for my chair. Probably works fine for standing.

Might be fine for the "lightweight" boards, however...

I bought this stand based solely on its claimed 300 pound weight capacity. My 1965 Hammond B-3 chop comes in about 235. When the stand had been in use for about four hours, the "Patented Memory Lock System" disintegrated into seventeen pieces, the once-intelligent IQ-3000 collapsed, and the Hammond came crashing down to the floor. Fortunately it happened at home on a carpeted floor, and the mangled stand, along with the carpet, cushioned the fall. The mighty Hammond survived the drop with absolutely no damage or ill affects, which is just one of the many reasons the Hammond tonewheel organ is at the top of the keyboard food chain. I took what was left of this boat anchor (maybe strong enough to anchor a dinghy) to the nearest scrap yard and they told me THEY didn't even want it. I finally convinced them to take it, they gave me two bucks for it, and I wrote the whole thing off as a total loss. The ONLY thing that stopped me from giving this stand the absolute lowest rating is that I feel it may be all right for most single manual, modern, digital keyboards. But for Ultimate Support to give this stand a 300 pound weight capacity is not using their IQ very wisely. It did, however, Ultimately Support my Hammond on it's way down to the floor, cushioning the drop. Does that account for anything.........?
