Hamilton

The most popular and enduring model from Hamilton Stands. The music stand has a two-section base with trapezoid-shaped desk--originally developed by Hamilton Stands--and folds and sets up quickly and easily for kids and adults. The desk has a deep shelf for holding extra music and spring clips for keeping music in place, and cam locks are used for height adjustment. The legs are secured by the spring-loaded "Hamilton Hook," which snaps into a hole in the lower tube.

This sheet music stand carries a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

    Why did I wait so long to get a music stand. I have been using weights on the corners of my music and songbooks, for years, to keep the book opened to the proper selection. Problem solved! This two piece music stand is perfect. The tripod folding base is well made and quite stable. The middle section also built to last, snaps into the tripod with a spring loaded catch. The top rod fits snugly and adjusts from about 30" to 45" high. The folding book holder frame fits into a bracket and is very secure. I am very pleased with the quality and price point.

    Very flimsy after assembly. I had to wedge a folded piece of cardboard near the joint to get it to stop wiggling. Also, no matter what I do, everything placed on it leans to the right (the music stand itself, not the tripod). I should have spent the extra money on the more durable stands. This serves its purpose, and has a great price,which is why I chose it, but who knows.

    Comments about Hamilton Folding Music Stand:

    If you're looking for an affordable, basic music stand, this is it. It's collapsible which makes it portable, does an adequate job of holding music/books. It is height-adjustible but not angle-adjustible, i.e. you can't tilt your music forward or backward, you just get the angle it's built for (which works fine). It's stable enough on level, smooth surfaces; wouldn't recommend for uneven surfaces like grass, gravel or similar surfaces. My platform doesn't fully unfold by a degree or two so it might be an issue for stiff/hard-bound books & folders but fine for loose sheets and paperback. Bottom line: if you want a basic, functional music stand you don't have to spend any more than this.

          Comments about Hamilton Folding Music Stand:

          I've used all those new one-piece stands, and eventually they all broke. I finally just went back to the Hamilton- what I had when I was a child...quality like it "used to be". Couldn't be happier with my purchase! Best price I've found too, from Musicians' Friend! Would highly recommend!!!!

            Comments about Hamilton Folding Music Stand:

            This stand is relatively light, and holds my chord & scale books well; the chord book is fairly substantial. It's a little bit flimsy, but it's extremely portable, and simple to use. For the price, it does everything I expected it to do. For anyone touring, you might consider something a bit heavier duty, but for practice and/or rehearsal, I'm sure it's adequate to the task.

              Used a Hamilton stand in high school 50 years ago. Today's version is unchanged. Quality materials carefully manufactured.

                  All of my purchases from Musician's Friend have been successful. I am poor and live on Social Security and what I make on gigs with my accordion. My keyboard is just a plaything and did not have a music stand with it, so this was ideal.

                        I purchased this stand for my son as he is taking trombone lessons at school. I wanted something light but good quality. I tried it out having some heavier stands, and it really works well. I'd recommend this one for sure. It feels like it is decent quality and the chrome is nice - not cheap looking. Definitely worth the price.
