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:

    If you've never owned a Manhasset stand, you need to get one. Then you'll find out why it is the stand used by professionals. Does it fold up as conveniently as cheaper stands? No. But it is stable and sturdy. And the ability to raise and lower the stand without tightening anything is enough to convince you it's the only stand to buy.

      Comments about Manhasset M48 Symphony Music Stand:

      I sing my own stuff at open mics around town, and I needed something to hold my portable DVD player and harmony pedal. This stand will do both, and mount my A/V chords and extension chord on the back. I'm quite pleased with this item.

        For the cost, this is a great stand. Not sure why anyone would pay about 70% of the cost for a flimsy stand.

              Comments about Manhasset M48 Symphony Music Stand:

              I bought this to replace a broken music stand from my digital piano. I had been avoiding buying a floor music stand, thinking that it would be too bulky for the area, and had tried various book stands and such to perch on top of the keyboard but these were flimsy and easily toppled. I finally went ahead with this one, and I wish I hadn't waited! Fits snugly against the keyboard stand, and adjusts to the perfect height so the support sits right against the keyboard. Sturdy, and wide enough for three pages at a time (albeit with some overhang). Very confident this metal stand will hold up for ages. Love it!
