After years of abuse...here's my review
I've put this stand through its paces. 2 years including multiple local shows, recording sessions, home set-up, rehearsals, touring, and probably a few other abuses/uses I'm not thinking of.
I use this stand to support my Yamaha S-80, a fully weighted 88-key synth. I occasionally use the 2nd tier for a triton extreme.
2 selling points for me right off the top-
1. It adjusts down to a piano-like level. An ultimate stand I had wouldn't go quite low enough and others I looked at had the same problem.
2. The trigger is where it's at. I've had other stands with various locking mechanisms- the trigger is fast and secure, easily adjustable on the fly....very nice.
It's taken all the banging, dragging and hauling around I've dished at it. It works great.
The only drawbacks I could think of would be a bit of nit-picking: the 2nd tier stand is a little bit of a pain to put on. And a pain to haul without messing it up. And it makes the 2nd tier keyboard come out further over the 1st tier keyboard more than I'd prefer. But it works well.
The best stand I've ever used.
