I was so impressed with how solidly made this stand was- at an insanely low price and free shipping, it blows away stands 4 times the price. Although heavier than the cheesy Hamilton portables, it is well worth it. The tripod construction makes it so stable that it will never blow over in outdoor gigs, The extra high supports make putting heavier fake books and other materials totally supported. Also, it is black, which makes it less obtrusive and fits well into pit work, chamber music gigs, etc. Another cool feature is the swivel capability of the stand top- so you could have the stand literally flat, parallel to the ground while reading- so when seated, people can see your guitar instead of being blocked by the stand. Since this does not come with a case (It should, but that would bring the price point up) I recommend holding on to the shipping box for transporting it. The height adjustment is a turnable knob rather than those flaps which are always a hazard to your hands when closing them. Bravo, MF for making such a great product available at such a great price!

The locking nuts do not lock. It is a flaw in the model because I exchanged it for another one, hoping the new one would work, but it didn't either. It had the exact same problem. The screw for the lock does not screw in all the way as if it is stripped. It comes a couple of centimeters short. Therefore, the pole does nto stay up to the position you need. They just didn't make it right. Maybe if you add an extra screw nut to it it might hold, but I'm returning it again for a different model.

    Solid stand.

    By nojob32

    from Milwaukee, WI

    Comments about Musician's Gear Folding Music Stand:

    I like this Musician's Gear folding stand. The rivets holding the legs and braces together seem to be substantial enough, although I haven't put the stand through many set-up/tear-down cycles. The tray's angle is adjustable. The only problem I've uncovered is that the tray opens a little beyond 180 degrees, so sheet music or books can wobble a bit without the flat surface. This seems to be a very nice, stable, middle-weight stand for the price of a light-weight model.

      The stand was very easy to unfold and set up. Very stabile, easy to adjust to musican height. Didn't check it outdoor but the small holds to press pages look very properly made. Recommend!

          i've been a musician since the '60's i run my own small recording studio. i have just beginning to learn the guitar and bass (yes! there are other instruments) this is perfect for holding sheet music as i play, taking with me to gigs and practtce. it's small, yet sturdy, it's stable and packs up very nicely. looks nice in black and the price was very good. my other stands are somewhat large and cumbersome and clumsy to bring with me. this is just right

          By Neil Salowitz

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Musician's Gear Folding Music Stand:

          Unless you're looking for a heavy-duty stand that will take a beating day after day, this one will more than suffice. Come to think of it, this one just MIGHT take a beating day after day. I've had it for about a month, and am completely satisfied.
          This music stand gets the job done. It's sturdy and stable, and adjusts to varying heights and tilts. You can't beat it for the price.
          Steel construction with good-quality hardware, rivets, etc.
          Excellent for the price. I use it in rehearsal and at gigs.

          Comments about Musician's Gear Folding Music Stand:

          This is all the music stand you will ever need. Adjusts to any height and angle for sitting or standing. Two wire retainers to keep your music in place. Wide enough stance to be very stable. Folds up nicely for toting around. Lightweight but far from flimsy. This is a great value, especially for the price. I have purchased many Musician's Gear products and everything has always exceeded my expectations. This music stand is no exception. I highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed.

            I have used one of these for 6+ years and was amazed that MF still sells these.. way better than other folding stands. I use this for acoustic gigs and it holds a 1" Ibinder stuffed with 50-70 pages ...all 3-sets of my chords/lyrics. It has never let me down and folds away compact.. no need to drag along a fixed conductor-type stand to hold a binder.

            I would not use this for every day studio .. I recommend the conductor type stands for that but for gigs this is perfect.

            Also beware.. this stand is not bullet proof and will not hold up to abuse .... as I gave one to my kid to use and it did not hold up because she did not understand the concept of "do not over tighten". She stripped the the thumb screws and bent the metal when she forced it.

                            Checked some reviews before purchasing 3 of these. A bit leary about the comments concerning the set screws\clamps. I found all to be sturdy as well as the entire stand. The tilt wing nut DOES hold all in place securely without getting out the vice grips, as well as the height adjustment. Don't know if the design changed in the interim, but I will heartily recommend these for the price point. Not your flimsy little flat legged stand that a breeze would knock over.

                            Comments about Musician's Gear Folding Music Stand:

                            This stand is pretty big, bulky and somewhat ugly but it has a great price. The knobs don't seem high quality and I've never liked the wing nut system on the tilt as I find it too prone to failure. The biggest disappointment is that it cannot sit lower than a basic music stand making it fine for ensembles and standing, but not ideal for sitting performances where you want a really low profile. But it seems quite functional and is about the cheapest stand I found.
