K&M folding stands may look like other wire stands, especially when you're browsing online. But they really are a notch above any similar-size folding stand out there. The German engineering really comes through. Every aspect of the stand performs better than the average wire stand. So yes, the K&Ms cost more, but they are worth the investment.

First experience with this stand was at a gig. It took me a few minutes to figure how how to open the top part, and I was afraid I might damage it. In its folded position the "arms" flip up or down, and I'm still not sure which position they need to be in to open it up. It's easy to close by the way. This rubik's cube design is a pain for now but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it. As a stand, it's great. Small profile, sturdy, better than those clip-ons for mic stands because it's less obvious. This is a quality stand, don't get me wrong. But renouned "German engineering" could do much better on preventing the hassle of opening. If umbrellas were designed this way, you'd be soaked by the time you got them open.

        Comments about K&M Heavy Duty Music Stand:

        This is by far the strongest and and most stable folding stand I've ever seen. The basic design looks similar to other cheaper folding wire stands but don't be fooled. This stand is Made in Germany and the quality is outstanding and worth the premium. The other day my friend's wire stand collapsed during rehearsal, music flying across the floor, from a breeze through the window... this stand didn't budge.

              Comments about K&M Heavy Duty Music Stand:

              This is the K&M 10065 stand. It was out of stock when I ordered it and MF met the back-order date 10 days later exactly as promised. Very well put together with 5 year warranty. Height range allows stand-up and sit-down playing. Stability is excellent and it supports a thick heavy 2 1/2" ring binder with no problems. The instructions to open it are not exactly obvious. You swing both long struts to vertical, but the shorter struts go vertical with them. You must return the short struts to the lower position before opening the shelf sides. Stands that have this strength usually have a bulky 1-piece music shelf. The compactness of this one is because the shelf ingeniously folds up, but it still has adequate strength. Five-star German quality! Price is quite high but well worth the money. K&M has numerous accessories for this stand, including the 10012 bag.

              Comments about K&M Heavy Duty Music Stand:

              This seems like the ultimate in folding music stands. I didn't list any "cons" but if it has one it would be weight. It is heavy for a folding stand, but that also gives it stability and strength, so I can't fault it for that. I like the way the screw adjustments work and hold firm. You can gather the legs together, and fold the table and the stand almost disappears in a room while standing upright and stable, ready for use at a moment's notice. It will safely hold a large fake book. The table folds back for glancing down use as in a dance band. It folds up into a neat little package for transportation. Note to manufacturer and sellers: It would be nice if a little bag for this stand were made available.

              Sturdy, well-designed made in Germany music stand. Easy to fold, though I keep it open all the time. Can hold thick books or my music books which are only about 40 pages. The first one was slightly damaged, and Musician's Friends shipped a new one out before getting the damaged one. I like them and this product is superior to the cheap ones, though it does cost a bit more.

                Feels as stable as my Manhasset non-portable stand. Folds up and travels three inches shorter than the lightweight stand it replaced after that one broke. Just make sure to read the one page of the manual that tells you how to fold up the music desk.

                Comments about K&M Heavy Duty Music Stand:

                We've had four portable music stands over the years. After about a decade, the plastic failed on our fiist two. I replaced one with a "light duty" K&M stand, and it works fine for me--I sit and my book only has the music for that performance. My partner, however, stands, and her book has our entire music collection. This K&M heavey duty stand seems to carry the load. It has small gears on the desk adjustment which help prevent collapse. A little heavier, but more compact and fits easily into an old case.

                It will hold a heavy folder or fake book securely. A very well made strong stand well worth the price. Get the carrying bag too.
                Look at the instructions to set it up. It has to be unfolded in a particular way.

I can place it back in the box it came in, making for easy transport and safety of the product. Overall, very satisfied!

                        Comments about K&M Heavy Duty Music Stand:

                        One learns quickly how solid and well built this item is. Highly stable and light, this stand folds into a one piece that's maybe 1.5 feet long and a few inches wide. I wanted a strong music stand without a bulky, solid deck assembly (the shelf for your music). This is my third try and first success. Height and other adjustments are made by tightening old fashioned screws with comfortable knobs, that actually keep notebooks or paper from sinking. As others have reported, the only drawback consists of initial difficulty in unfolding the stand. It is not intuitive. So you read the directions, do it their way, and from then on, not a problem.

                        First experience with this stand was at a gig. It took me a few minutes to figure how how to open the top part, and I was afraid I might damage it. In its folded position the "arms" flip up or down, and I'm still not sure which position they need to be in to open it up. It's easy to close by the way. This rubik's cube design is a pain for now but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it. As a stand, it's great. Small profile, sturdy, better than those clip-ons for mic stands because it's less obvious. This is a quality stand, don't get me wrong. But renouned "German engineering" could do much better on preventing the hassle of opening. If umbrellas were designed this way, you'd be soaked by the time you got them open.

                        Good quality, but a bit heavy

                          Heavy, but if you want stability for a heavy songbook, this will work.

                            needed a solid stand to alto sax music. This fits the bill.

                              Very happy with the quality of this stand. It is a little heavier than my old one but will probably last a lot longer. Does not tip over and holds a good amount of music.

                              This was a much needed upgrade. I can rest assured now that my music and stand won't be blown away by the wind. The only downside I have found is that it does not fit inside of my MB5 horn case, so I simply made sure to also buy the carrying bag!
