Could been a perfect stand...but...
I've tried a couple of different stands with my keyboards and once I saw this stand I was really amazed by it's beauty and had to get it.
Although I consider the price is to high I wouldn't mind that if I would be satisfied all the way through with this stand.
So I own a K&M Spider pro and a couple of X stands. But now I bought me a Korg Kronos 88 and wanted a solid stand so I turned to the Roland KSJ8.
First of all: the looks is 5/5. Really a good looking, professional stand.
It is Also rock solid although a bit of heavy but then again it wouldn't been that solid if it wasn't sturdy as it is. I guess one can't go without the other.
So for this I give it max ratings.
When buying a stand, it is important to me that the stand is easy to move around which this stand really is. So 5/5 for that as well.
It doesn't take so much space either when transporting, which is awesome.
Now to the negative issues:
First of all when I play on my Korg Kronos 88 it does bounce as someone mentioned in their review as well. I did hope for this stand not making that problem but unfortunately it does a bit.
If the reason is that Kronos 88 is a bit to heavy for this stand I do not know, and maybe it wouldn't bounce as much with the smaller Kronos models.
When it bounces I have the stand on max height, so maybe it wouldn't bounce if I sat down using this stand with the Kronos 88.
Although I did buy this stand only because I want to use it gigging and standing up while playing.
Which leads me to my other complaint about it, the max height is to low. So if you're tall then don't use this stand.
I am 178 cm my self and I feel that the stand is about 5 cm to short for me. As well I like when, standing and playing, I have approximately 90 % angel on my arm while playing and this stand definitely doesn't manage to please me on this issue.
But I guess I'll get used to it.
Anyway, nothing is perfect and I will continue to use this product because I consider no other stand will do it better for now.
