      This stand is very stable and secure despite it's light weight and portability. However, the music tray is not the standard size I've come to expect from solid black stands, but is instead almost exactly two pages of 8.5x11. While it's definitely stable enough to hold some of the heaviest binders (locking height adjuster), Plan to have all but the smallest music books and all of your binders hang over the edges, and don't ever plan to put a set list or anything else off to the side.

      While I do understand some people's confusion about original assembly (takes a moment of thinking) All the parts are there and have a function, and all adjustments are able to be made quickly and securely.

      All in all I'm quite pleased, but I'll have to plan ahead and make sure all of my binders are black and that I have a place to put any off-to-the-side music or notes.

      I have to be honest and say that this stand is a giant waste of my money! Because, while I will grudgingly use this stand for the time being, sooner or later, I am going to have to spring for an ACTUAL MUSIC STAND to replace this with. In short,this is not a real music stand. DO NOT be fooled by the pictures in the ad that make it look like those old-school stands. If you really need a high quality music stand then you are just going to have to spend the dollars and buy one of those annoying, bulky stands that, to be quite honest, are the best out there. I can tell you right now that I have a case of buyer's remorse. I would return it, but I already crushed up the box it came in.
      Features? It's a music stand, not a fully loaded car.
      Well, this certainly isn't a completely horrible music stand. That designation is reserved for the tin-plated little fold-up ones that look like they are made out of glorified wire mesh. However, this stand isn't very good for either, at least not for gigging. While I love the portability of the insubstantial stands that fold up to the size of a closed umbrella, the problem is that at gigs, all my set lists, lyrics sheets, and chord charts end up flying all over the place. So I needed one of those old-school solid metal stands we have all seen. So I found this stand and was initially excited because it looked like one of those solid, old style stands, at least it did in the picture. Trouble is that in a live setting, it is a little better at holding the papers I put on it, but still not particularly good. I think a lot of it has to do with the horribly flimsy build quality of this thing. Those old stands we have all seen aren't particularly portable, and apparently aren't cheap either, but what they do have is a very solid, easy-to-use, easy-to adjust construction that for whatever reason, the papers seem to have the ability to STAY on them. Obviously if you're playing outdoors then all this goes out the window, but I am talking about indoor gigs, bars, clubs, and that sort of thing.

      This stand has several small holes in the "stand part" of it where the papers sit. So I guess, even the slight breeze of an indoor venue can generate enough to sometimes knock your papers off no matter what angle you set the main part of the stand at. I will try putting masking tape or something over the small holes and see if that helps at my band's next gig, but I am not going to get my hopes up.

      The "mechanism" of how this stand goes together also leaves a lot to be desired. To describe it briefly, you have the expandable, telescoping tripod part, similar to your standard microphone, booom stand. The end that connects to the actual stand is just a black, cylindrical piece. Here is where things begin to really get stupid, though: The "female" part on the stand that the pole slides into is this strange looking, almost crescent shaped piece on the back of the stand that has sort of two semi-circular metal pieces and a tightening bolt. You are apparently supposed to loosen the nut (or bolt, whatever you want to call it) all the way, slide the cylindrical pole in, and tighten it until it stays in place. First off, whoever thought of this mechanism was apparently on something...or perhaps they should have been. It is clumsy and not very effective at all. In addition, the way it is designed is that you have to find some magical "sweet spot" where the stand is about to fall off the pole but still manages to stay on. The reason is because the way the attachment mechanism works is that if you push the pole too far into the locking mechanism (you know, to make it more stable) the back of the stand hits against the freaking pole! This means that you will be forced to have your stand almost vertical! In other words, most good music stands allow you to flex and extend the functional part of the stand to accomodate your position on stage, not to mention make the papers resting n it less prone to falling off all the time. But if you try to make the stand more stable, you lose almost all of the movement of the stand. So you will have to spend some time threading the pole in so shallow that it is barely in the mechanism at all, but still stable while allowing for the stand to be tilted more or less according to your needs. This is pretty awful, to be honest, particularly for gigging.

      In addition to the connection to the tripod being very awkward and cumbersome, I cannot imagine this lasting very long. The first thing I thought when I assembled the stand for the first time was, "This is a broken stand waiting to happen!".

      It also comes with a very strange wing-nut that I have yet to figire out what it is supposed to be used for. It doesn't actually fit onto anything, but I saved it just in case I get a visit from the Music-Stand Fairy and it turns out that this is the magic ingredient to turn this lackluster stand into something a little more functional.
      Honestly? Not good. The only thing that prevents me from giving this stand straight "1's" across the board is that, as I said in the title, "You get what you pay for." Seriously, though, this stand is NOT worth the money in my estimation, at least not if you are a gigging musician. Yes, as I alluded to, it is better than those wire-mesh doodad stands, but then again they are half the money as this one.

            Really good stand for the money. I think it's sturdy enough to use it for my KAOSS pad. If I get really crazy and knock into it, I will be in trouble, but that's probably the case for most any stand. A deal at this price, and much sturdier than those flimsy thin silver metal ones.

                Comments about Musician's Gear Folding Music Stand:

                I was looking for an inexspensive stand to replace one of those shaky, foldup, student type stands and this fit the bill well. I bought this to leave at my church, so I can't speak to duribility but it's sturdy and holds my music binder steady. Keep in mind that the "Shelf" is not deep as deep as those typically found on orchestra/conductor type music stands. If you have a big 3" binder and want to place loose sheets in front of it you might have a problem. Otherwise this is a solid stand and a solid value.

                    Great stand ! Should ship some clamps or page retainers along with it and it would be perfect . Not really a huge deal to add them yourself, but would be nice to keep the music on the stand in a breeze out of the box !

                        This is a good no nonsense music stand. It is inexpensive compared to others.
                        I have similar stand made by On Stage Stands that is better but can't find them anymore.
                        But for under 20 this is nice. The metal music holder itself is a bit undersized, it only fits two 8.5 x 11 inch sheets side by side. So it is not good for oversized sheet music or binders. The pivot adjustment is not great and is just 2 metal bolts; no knobs. You need two hands to adjust. It is more stable than the chrome folding stands, but not as portable. It is not as stable as the typical high school band stands.
