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.

      The product is of great quality and lasts for quite some time. The only negative is the absence of the necessary tools and the companies Musician's Friend's inability to offer such tools.

      Comments about Manhasset M48 Symphony Music Stand:

      Rather than sheet music, these are being used to hold props for video production. We tried a cheaper brand with different design but it wobbled far too much. These are versatile and stable. Great product!

        Stable which helps in a small space as it gets bumped. My music school has these stands so I wanted the same.

            Comments about Manhasset M48 Symphony Music Stand:

            It's what I'd call the home-use version of the standard Manhasset stand - i.e., somehow it seems a bit smaller & a bit lighter-weight than the ones I used in the past, in professional organizations. But it definitely does the job and I'm pleased to have it. It's far too early to ssay anything about my main criterion - durability - but my guess is it will last a long time.

            This stand is worth the extra money. I purchased a cheaper model and it is now in the trash. I highly recommend this stand.

              What's not to like? The stand is a classic and is suitable for most purposes. It isn't easy to transport but it can be done. Just a bit awkward is all. :)
