I purchased several of these stands about 4 years ago to use in our Music Academy ... kids lessons, performances, etc. I must say, we've never experienced any of the problems described here and I would definitely purchase more stands if needed. I will say that the stands are pretty heavy-duty and sturdy, a feature good for use in dedicated space. Although it isn't the standard Manhasset all-metal, been around for decades, tried-and-true, for the money I don't think you can find a better stand. That said, if I were gigging more, I would probably choose a stand that didn't weigh as much as this one does ... who wants to tote around a heavy stand when there are lighter, suitable options. Conceivably, the plastic handles could be damaged but they are pretty substantial and, in my experience, they'd have to be handled pretty roughly in order for that to happen. Don't know if the other reviewer had a bad batch from the factory - entirely possible - or if the quality has changed since my purchase. In the end, I would purchase again and really like the stand for what we use them for ... and it sure saved over the Manhasset's, which are a standard tradition in the Classical/Jazz world I come from. They're sturdy like Manhasset but entirely portable - the best of both worlds in my opinion.

I needed a new Music Stand to replace the flimsy fold up one I'd been using for years. I saw this on the "Stupid Deal" and bought it. The major problem with this stand as delivered is the top flops. The section where it connects to the base has a gap that is a bit too large, the top part of the base is hollow and has 2 neopreme washers that can just slip inside. It's like they just cut a short piece of thin walled pipe, spot welded it and painted it black. I had to bend in the ears on the top with a pair of pliars to get it tight enough to even stay up. Using some washers inside the hollow connector at the top of the stand will help stabalize it firther. A friend has an older one and it's NOT like this. I probably should have just returned it but I needed a stand and this was cheap, so I just fixed it. Time will tell if the latches on the base hold up, if I get a few years out of it it'll be worth it. For the price, it's "ok" IF you don't mind modifying it, but as it arrived (at least the one I received) it was worthless. If I'b paid full price, one star would have been generous.

      I do like the stands and have several; however the tighter button on the back is
      very difficult to get completely tight..it is awkward to access it. Would be nice if they
      could put a lever on there instead..thanks

      Comments about Proline GMS80A Conductor Sheet Music Stand:

      Proline conductor's stand used to be great value but now, not so much. The several that I tried before refusing to purchase did not lock the tripod to the stand. My older model is excellent but until this locking problem is solved, and the inferior ones are exhausted in the supply chain, I'd recommend keep looking.

            The quick release clamps on the stand will not hold, allowing the stand to collapse back to the lowest height... embarrassing during a performance.

              Nice sturdy stand. Only complaint is the center section doesn't grip tight. This allows it to rotate occasionally. Overall pleased with stand.
