    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

    Short stand!

    Was just looking for another Manhasset stand, we have two others. Didn't notice the "shorter" part of the discription. This is a good stand, just not much good for performing...Read complete review

        Comments about Manhasset 48C Music Stand:

        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.

        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.

          far too short for a violinist to use while standing- would have returned if wrappings did not get lost in christmas cleanup- quality stand for perhaps a cellist

                This is a quality stand, but it is a SHORT stand. I guess I didn't pick up on that in the info.

                i've bought this brand before and thought the number (48) was what i had. wrong. it's way too short for standing musicians. i can only use it for sit-down people.

                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!
