Sweetwater Advice

  • Scott DeMarko

    The On-Stage Stands Deluxe Music Stand is by far is my favorite stand. It's easy to transport and set up, plus it is very professionally built. To say it's a tank is an understatement (and who's ever used THAT word to describe a music stand?). Since it can easily double as a laptop stand, small mixer stand, or controller stand, I typically use it flat. Every DJ event, I seem come up with new uses for it!
    For anyone looking for a diverse, all-in-one stand, I'd wholeheartedly recommend it for its sturdiness, stability, and strength. From a traditional sheet music stand to a flat surface for your iPad, laptop, MIDI gear, etc., it's a great tool that every working musician should have.

    I bought this stand and was surprised by how good the quality was. As always, shipping and communication with my sales person (Ben Robinson) were top notch. I've never been disappointed with anything I've purchased from Sweetwater.

    The on stage stand that I purchased is just as described. It is heavy enough that it can hold up to repeated use and won't be knocked over by an accidental bump or two.

    Does the star rating only go to 5???? Awesome, heavy duty, stable, rugged...ok I love this thing!

    Awesome for a Stand

    This thing is awesome. I bought it to use for songwriting sessions with my band for lyrics, notes, etc. and it's been perfect. Super adjustable and amazingly sturdy. I now use it as a catch all stand for ear plugs, pens, picks, cell phone...it's a nice addition to the rehearsal room. Only thing is my version did not come with the adjustable wheel shown on the picture--it's more of a typical crank lock. Would have liked the wheel but it doesn't take away from it. Also, the top piece locks in place and doesn't swivel like other stands I've used. Took a little getting used to but I actually like that feature.

    Great product

    The stand was exactly what my daughter needed to read music while playing the clarinet. The height is adjustable. As usual, phenomenal customer service from Sweetwater!

  • from NJ October 3, 2015Music Background:

    Excellent stand

    I was surprised how well made this stand was upon opening the box. Yes, I can understand some of the reviews about some of the plastic parts failing. I don't think I would choose this model for on the road travel but for home/studio use, it is perfect. I may just use it for my ipad or for mounting my small Yahama mixer. It could be used as a tray/table for percussion accessories too. It looks great and is sturdy. Looks like a win-win in my book for the money.

    Sweetwater Customer Service

    I was blown away at the help I received from Sweetwater when I was ordering new music stands for our church. The online ordering was easy and fast and within minutes of placing my order online I had a gentleman call me and confirm all the details. Little did I know I had the shipping wrong and he quickly fixed it for me and I received my stands within a couple days!! I will definitely be purchasing all my music product needs from Sweetwater!! Thanks for your outstanding service!

    A Welcomed Addition "On Stage"

    Today, May 21st, 2014, I purchased this stand. I guess you are wondering how I can write a review when I haven't even received the stand. It's simple. I already own one just like it. This stand is the most durable stand on the market and will hold enough music to satisfy anyone's demands! It is very stable. It will not tip over. The tripod base makes this stand a necessity when doing an outdoor concert. If you have experienced an outdoor concert with a swift wind blowing, you know how you keep your fingers crossed when using a standard music stand and pray that it doesn't tip over. With this stand, it will not tip over. If it does, you had better seek shelter because you are in a tornado! You will not regret your purchase and you will not regret purchasing from Sweetwater. Their two year free warranty and free shipping gives you peace of mind. You will not go wrong!

    When I opened the box I couldn't believe how heavy duty it was.. The best one I have seen. It holds my 3 inch 3 ring binder with ease. All 375 sheets of printed songs place in plastic covers. I love the adjustments that you make. It is very versatile. I recommend this stand to anyone who wants a stand that can take rough handling without being tweaked.

    I am so very happy with this stand! I had a cheap fold up stand that does the job but I always dreaded working with it. It is amazing to me how much difference it makes to have a sturdy stand to practice and learn. Great price and free shipping makes it even better.

  • from Lindenhurst, IL USA September 12, 2013Music Background:

    Rigid, adjusts easily-perfect for multi-page fake books

    Constructed well with convenient adjustment and support. The book plate is large enough for larger (and heavier) manuscript, no more pages falling off the stand. Especially comfortable for seated playing, although adjusts to a standing height. Oh, it folds too, but is no lightweight. Happy to have purchased this item...I don't no why I waited so long!

  • from United States February 21, 2013Music Background:

    Excellent music stand, Incredible service

    Not only was the music stand a great bargain (I got it on clearance), but it was much more solid/stable and much easier to assemble than other music stands I've owned in the past. As well--perhaps even more impressive--the service was incredible from start to finish: personal follow-up phone call after I placed my order, and other welcome interactions by email. This is clearly a company with real humanity and and a very keen and genuine interest in satisfying all of its musician customer's needs. I got the feeling that the people who work here are real music aficionados who know everything about everything.

    On Stage Deluxe Music Stand

    This is the greatest music stand I have ever had! My music books are huge and heavy and this stand has no problem with any of that. It adjusts about 5 different ways and folds up for convenient carrying. My consultant Danielle recommended it and again she was right on it!!
    I HIGHLY recommend this one!!

    SM7211B Music Stand

    Upon delivery of the music stand I was amazed at the quality. It is sturdy, holds a large 3-ring binder full of songs and never bends under the stress. The faceplate is large enough so that the binder will not fall from the weight. The legs are sturdy and don't bend under pressure. It is adjustable for sitting down or standing up while performing. I recommend it.

    Very good music stand

    The OnStage conductor stand is a well built, very sturdy music stand with a wide ledge which is great for holding binders and books as well as sheets. Although the stand is portable it is not very compact when collapsed (the desk top doesn't fold) and it's a bit heavier than others I've used.

    I think this is a great stand for the money. It is very sturdy, even for holding heavy music folders( it does not tip easily). It folds up nice, it is easy to carry, and does not take up a lot of room. If you are looking for a stand that looks good and at a good price, get it.

    Music Stand Fastener

    I really like these stands as we use them in our church. But just recently we had our second of two music stands incapable of using. Because the fastener screw for adjusting the height of the stand, the thread stripped and this is the second one to do that to us. I would have hoped the screws would be a bit more durable from loosening and tightening them in adjusting the height of the stand. Could very well be that perhaps some of us in the worship band tighten them to tight or something. I have to go find some replacement screws. Other than that these stands work out great!

    Big and Sturdy

    This stand is big and super sturdy for a folding stand. It’s actually about the size of a standard, non-folding stand. I love it for the rehearsal room, but it’s a little large for gigging. It makes a great, sturdy laptop stand in a pinch, too.

    Great Stand, Affordable

    While this isn't the industry standard Manhasset stand, it is a great value, and has some advantages of its own.
    Its comparable in weight to the Manhasset, meaning its light and easy to move around/carry with one hand. It doesn't feel perhaps as strong and durable, but it feels surprisingly solid for its low weight and low price. it does have the fantastic advantage of a folding base. Its also easy to operate, I can adjust the height and angle with one hand if necessary. I'm actually quite impressed. Its such a small upgrade in price from some of the other really cheap junk out there, that its a no brainer, while still coming in about 30% less than the cost of a Manhasset.

  • from Woodland, CA March 13, 2017Music Background:

    Questionable Construction for Moving Parts

    I own two of these stands. I purchased them about two years apart. For having such a large book plate, this stand folds up to a very compact size. It also has an extremely wide range of height adjustability—well beyond any music stand I have used. Its wide base and large diameter center shaft make it very sturdy, even with top-heavy loads. I have never worried about having a large folder of music and an iPad on the tray at the same time.

    There are a few design choices On-Stage made with this stand that I don’t like, however. The knob that allows you to remove the book plate from the center shaft is easily (and frequently) mistaken for the angle adjustment knob for the book plate. People not familiar with setting up this stand almost always mistakenly take the book plate off when trying to adjust the angle.

    Additionally, the coupler that connects the upper and lower shafts, the book plate angle adjustment, and the leg housing are all plastic. While I haven’t had a problem with any of these parts yet, they do feel fairly flimsy.

    What prompted me to write this review, though, was that one of the rivets that holds the leg support straps to the leg popped off before a gig the other night. This was on the stand I purchased about two years ago. The stand is not usable without these leg support straps. I plan to repair it with a small nut and bolt, but due to this and the plastic parts on the stand, I’m apprehensive about purchasing another one in the future.

    The price of this stand is extremely reasonable. With that said, I would not be opposed to spending three to four times as much for a music stand with a wider return lip, and sturdier construction at the moving and adjustment points.

  • from Grand Rapids,MI February 3, 2015

    I'd pass on this stand

    Not impressed w/ this stand. Kinda flimsy - I would recommend that you pass on this one.

    Not Satisfactory

    On Stage Stands quality has noticeably gone down in the past few years. The screws have stripped out after a couple of months even when being careful not to force parts to move before they've been loosened. There are more cheap plastic parts and a general flimsiness than there was before. I will not be purchasing anymore of their products.
