Great for home or studio. I have even ordered a second unit just because I like this one so much. That way, when my cheap bandmates show up to practice we will have plenty of stands for everyone to see the music.
I wasn't sure if I wanted the Conductor's Stand or the less expensive Heavy-Duty folding stand. In the end it was the additional features of this unit that won me over. I've had several of the fully collapsable/portable stands that fold up to fit in small cases and knew that I did not want something that flimsy. One reason is that they just don't hold large music books very well. I wanted something that would hold steadily a book with 200+ pages. Some of my books, such the White Pages type, have 400+ pages, so the foldable models just won't work.

There were three other features that I needed as well. First, a stand should be adjustable so that you can use it while sitting or standing. This means that it should be strong enough that when extended for a standing position it will not wobble or move. Second, the table should be large enough for full size books/sheets to lean against and the shelf (where the book sits) deep enough to hold large volumes. The tiny/cheap stands don't usually have enough room here, so a large book will not sit well. The shelf on this stand is 2" deep, so there's plenty of room for an open book of 200-400 pages. Third, it should be sturdy enough to withstand being moved around the room, adjusted regularly, and allow you to change books/sheets without worrying about it folding or collapsing under the stress. My experience with those tiny folding stands is that they wobble, they fall over easily, and they just don't do well when trying to adjust/move a 200+ page book.
For me, quality is rated in context of price, and this one has plenty of quality. I'm sure the stands used by the LA Philharmonic are probably better, but they are also not paying less than $25 for a stand. So in all, the quality is very good. That's also where the comparison between the "Heavy-Duty" and "Conductor" models became so important. From what I can tell, both have good quality, but in the end the Conductor just seemed to offer a bit more heft and durability. The sheetmetal work is very good. The rounded edges on the desk add strength and keep the edge from becoming a knife in the studio. The shelf is bent into place with a nice clean line so that it is square across the bottom. I'm sure the factor uses a huge press to do this, but even then when working with this type of metal there can be a tendency to warp or show signs of the bend pressure. That doesn't seem to be true here, and the unitl is very well made. Best part is the paint used is thick, so there is no raw metal feel. The paint doesn't feel like it will chip away or wear off quickly, so I'm very happy with that. I also like that there are holes already in place on the desk so that you can add accessories such as a light.
This unit is easily 1/2 the price of similar quality/build stands that I find in local stores. If you're using a stand regularly, and want something to hold books and plenty of sheets, then this is a good quality unit. The heavy duty might be good, too, and it's cheaper, but with the extra features the Conductor unit has I think it is well worth the extra money.

I am a classroom music teacher. I ordered 40 of these stands one year ago, but after having several break, I am now down to only 28 working stands.

The joint connecting the bookplate to the rod extending above the tripod is made of brittle plastic and is possibly made too small. Several of them cracked upon assembly, and then (with often just a small bit of pressure) one third of my stands have broken, leaving me with a completely useless item that could be repaired easily, given the right parts (which I cannot seem to find).

I am anxious to repair these because once I do, I will be in love with them again.

    Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Conductor Music Stand:

    I wasn't expecting much when I purchased this item, given the relatively low price I paid, but I was immediately impressed by how solid this thing is. I use it for holding music books, pencil and a guitar trainer, while practicing in my home studio. Adjustable and quite stable.

            Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Conductor Music Stand:

            There are a lot of other stands out there that may be built to withstand more than this one but you will not find a better stand for twice or even 3x the price. I bought one for a female vocalist I recently hired and I liked the stand so much that I bought another one for my studio. The stand has a sturdy base and it callapses nicely for easy transport.

                      I have read negative comments and I must say, they just received a faulty stand. I have two of these in my house and neither has any issue with serving it's designed purpose. It holds all the books/papers/tuners/etc that I could ask it to without sliding, collapsing or falling over. The convenience added by a stand of this quality promotes further playing and enjoyment of the instrument when you are not fighting with music. I would recommend this stand to anyone looking for a better solution than chair seats, hands, or floor. It is as good as I remember from music class in the 60's when quality was renown in good products.

                        In the past I have purchased Manhasset stands for musical groups in churches and for my musician sons, but this stand is just as sturdy and is more easily adjusted than what I remember of the Manhassets. It's also quite a bit cheaper so that I could buy it without guilt for my new ukulele hobby. It will hold the fingering chart and the heavy method books I'm using. Depending on their conducting styles, orchestral conductors might want wider stands to spread the scores out more.
