If you sit down OR stand when you play and wish to not block the audience's view of you with your music papers, buy this stand.
Great for those who play classical guitar, Gypsy jazz guitar, cello, harp, etc... anything sitting in a chair. It extends tall enough to be used in a higher stool or standing.
If you need your sheet music above waist height of a 6 foot person than get the taller one. I have both but only gig with this one, as I wish to not obstruct the visual element of a music performance.

Comments about Manhasset 48C Music Stand:

This stand arrives disassembled and anyone can put it together correctly and quickly. The stand is flat black in color so reflections are not an issue. The area where the music is placed is generously sized. The stand height is easily adjusted and did not fall out of adjustment once set. The only caveat with this specific model is that it's maximum height is quite short. Consequently, if you are a medium to tall person you'll want a taller stan;d so forego this model. Even when seated you'll be looking down at an excessively steep angle, unless the stand is well away beyond arms reach. This stand is best suited for kids or very short people

Comments about Manhasset 48C Music Stand:

The Manhasset music stand has changed little since the days when you sat back in the Euphonium section in middle school band and just could not get your mind off of Jennifer Wilson in the flute section. The Manhasset music stand still blocks your view to her french braids but holds the music just fine. This variety does not go very high but is actually lighter than I remember. There is now one plastic part for the stand swivel but that works fine. Great assembly instructions. Takes like two minutes.

Comments about Manhasset 48C Music Stand:

Not tall enough for standing while reading music on this stand. The maximum height of this stand is sufficient for sitting while reading music only. Don't get this stand if you plan on playing while standing up!

Comments about Manhasset 48C Music Stand:

This is a well made and sturdy music stand. I needed one that would be used for someone standing. The music stand only came up to abou 3 feet off of the ground, so I had to return them for taller stands

      Comments about Manhasset 48C Music Stand:

      Needed a stand that could be set low enough in a seated position that would allow me to steal a look at my fretboard if necessary, but also raises high enough for poor copies of sheet music. This stand works great.

        The same stand I remember from the band room, just a bit shorter. Works well when seated. Not the best when you practice or perform standing up. This works fine at home for practicing. I'm definitely hanging onto mine! Would recommend with those limitations.

          This music stand is very sturdy and built with heavy duty construction. I love that it moves up and down without having to engage a twisting, locking device that eventually becomes stripped and non functional. These stands are built to last and take a beating.

                This is perfect if you want to hold an entire book instead of just a few sheets of paper. The height adjustment doesn't lock, but this doesn't seem to be an issue. It doesn't slide back down, even with the beefy Guitar Grimoire on it. Would definitely buy again and again.

                      This music stand looks just like the ones I used in high school, and is just as stable. The metal part which holds the music seems to be a little lighter gauge than I remember, but it is very sturdy, and since it won't get knocked around as much as those did in school, I expect this stand will outlive me.

                              Purchase was strictly for home use, not to be transported. Good quality fit & finish. Solid & stable base and holds even heavy books by friction. I suspect that if one slides the telescoping neck up and down a lot, in time, fricton will not be a suitable means of support. At which time, I will devise a simple plastic collar to remedy any slippage.

                              As usual, Musician's Friend delivered on-time (before scheduled delivery date in fact) with no damage.

                              I am pleased.

                                I have tried a couple of other stands; but, much prefer this one. At least, when I put a book on it, it doesn't flip over and dump it in the flow..might not be the best; but, it's the best I've run across, so far.

                                  This stand is exactly what I wanted. Good quality, well made, easily adjustable. I use it when I practice guitar at home. Easy to move around but it's not flimsy.
