      I've had this music stand for about a year now and it still doesn't slip at all. I put several books and folders on it at once and it holds them all easily. This stand will do exactly what you want it to and that is to hold whatever you can fit on it and not slip or bend at all. A little pricey, but a great stand.

      I bought several of these stands over 10 years ago. They seem to be the only things I've owned for so long that still seem to be in mint condition. I suspect they will last a lifetime. I constantly recommend my students invest a little & buy these over something that's just going to fall apart on them. I just bought a few more of these stands to add to my business only to discover the part that the desk pivots on is now being made out of plastic instead of metal. I cannot scientifically prove that the plastic version is any less durable, but it is a clear step in the wrong direction for the company. I would gladly pay a little more to bring back the metal part. But if I'm just buying a stand without knowing how long it will last, there are other metal stands out there that cost less than these. 100% of the value in this brand is knowing that they don't need the warranty they include, knowing the stands will last forever, without question. The choice to cut a corner makes me question. I can no longer recommend them.

      Comments about Manhasset M48 Symphony Music Stand:

      This is a great choice for a stand. I bought this to replace a 20+ year old version of the same stand. The quality seems comparable to the older model, though the construction of the stand has changed in some very minor ways.

              If you played in band (elementary, jr/middle, &/or high school)...this stand should bring back memories, because it is one and the same. Easy to set up (2-5 mins, max.), then use. The price is very affordable too for what you get!

                It's a really well built music stand.
                You'll need a wrench to adjust (no butterfly nut or knob to tighten things)
                It isn't meant to be portable (can't stow it in your luggage for air trips), but it is great for more permanent use...

                    Wish I had ordered scratch protectors at the same time. I put some black socks until shipment comes in to prevent scratches on my wood floors.

                      I have a Manhasset stand with a second ledge for teaching, but it wasn't a good choice for performing. This stand was easy to assemble and it feels sturdy enough to handle the demands of outdoor concerts, transport, and general usage.
