    I don't understand how anyone could write a negative review of this product. I did my research, looked for the product with the most positives & the least negatives and submitted my order.

    I am glad I did. The 122 KSB stand is Rock Solid.

    I play a Roland D-50 which is not to be confused with a piece of plastic with a couple of circuit boards. It is fairly heavy as far as keyboards go and after I got the stand dialed in, Viola!

    I have four cats, and I know for a fact one day they were on the keyboard after I had set up the stand with the Roland on it. They knocked the cover off, but the keyboard did not move, something that would not happen with the flimsy X-type stands.

    Our practices are intense and kind of crowded and I go back and forth between my guitar and the keyboard. I am a big guy at 6'4", 220 and graceful I am not so I bang into stuff, including keyboards on keyboard stands, lead-guitarists and the occasional drummer. The keyboard was still standing after practice.

    Also, I read a review where the end-user did not like setting the stand up. It was too difficult...What set-up? You unscrew a couple of knobs and wing-nuts, expand the thing, insert a couple of pins and lock it down. When you tear it down, it fits easily back into the case. It may take sixty seconds to set-up, and even less to take down. OK, maybe ninety-seconds, but still...

    Since I am tall, I am glad the thing goes way up. As a matter of fact, I use it two-inches down form the top mark. How high do you need it? This stand will get you there. I also like the tilt feature, because I simply hated arching my wrists during those 8-years of piano lessons back when everything was in black-and-white. Remember class, fingerings are just a suggestion...

    I do not have a second keyboard at present, but our band has a policy that if you aren't plugged in on that particular song, you play percussion. So, I hung my chimes off one of the lower arms and my favorite tambourine, the one I put my hand through so it doesn't have a skin on it anymore, on the other arm.

    Look, I just like to play rock, I am not a studio musician or anything of the sort, but I know what solid is, and this stand is solid. Let me put it this way, I should be a product tester. I have had this stand two-weeks, and had zero issues. If it was going to break, I would have broke it by now. It is easy to set up, easy to take down, it is rock solid and it comes with a carrying case.

    What more do you want? I did read the instructions, once. Good to go.

    If you need something portable and solid, get this stand. Hope I did not typo, I am hitting send.
    Peace.

    I give it praise because it doesn't bounce. That's the one thing that it does well.
    Setting up this stand is a nightmare. I found it incredibly difficult to get each side even. The extensions on the brackets never seem to quite stay in place as they are easily loosened.
    I had to use a level to try and make sure the brackets were even. Making minor adjustments is a chore. It would have been so much better if there were notches positioned for each bracket to catch so that you could be sure to have them even. They could have improved this and even if it added to the cost it would have been well worth it.

    One thing - this stand definitely does not bounce which is a huge upside. That's why I purchased it as I can't stand bouncing keyboards on their stands. HOWEVER, it does sway from side to side very easily. So they got one part of the equation correct - better than anyone else's stand I've tried - but they need to get the sway removed as well.
    The thumb screws do not hold the bracket extensions well at all. I think the design of the connecting pieces to the stand is poor. The materials are good - all metal.
    It's not a great value because it is expensive and very difficult to set up as well as not being very secure. If the design was better and the locking components were solid, it would be a tremendous value even if they had to raise the price 25%. It's that close to being a great stand vs one that is frustrating.

      Comments about Standtastic 122 KSB 48" Double-Tier Keyboard Stand with Deluxe Bag:

      The Standtastic Stand is AMAZING!! For a sturdy 2-tier stand, it's very light. In fact, at 24 pounds, it matches my Casio PX5s in weight (which balances well when I carry one in each hand). Plenty of room for pedals. I LOVE the tilt I have on my 2nd tier (makes it SO much easier to play, and all my controls are right there..nothing covered up!!). This is, absolutely, the BEST keyboard stand for gigging! Unless you have a roadie who will set up you stuff for you, you MUST get this stand!!

      Comments about Standtastic 122 KSB 48" Double-Tier Keyboard Stand with Deluxe Bag:

      Won't work out of the box. This is NOT my first Standtastic keyboard stand I have owned. The older stands were built slightly better. On the initial setup I discovered that the arm adjustments would not work because the wrong thumb screws were installed. After doing a little reengineering in my workshop, the stand is now useable. Even though I had to "make" it work myself, I would still recommend this stand to others. The bag that is included is nice for transporting to and from gigs.

        Comments about Standtastic 122 KSB 48" Double-Tier Keyboard Stand with Deluxe Bag:

        I used three keyboards for a number of years, and after a good deal of study settled on the three-tier model of this stand. When deciding on a two-tier stand, there was no decision to make. I immediately ordered this stand and have had absolutely no regrets. It provides a VERY secure base for the instruments, sets up easily, and folds into a surprisingly narrow configuration. The bag provided with the stand makes it easy to transport.
        The stand is NOT light, but this is a feature I particularly appreciate. With a significant investment in keyboards, I wanted a solid, secure stand. This is it.

          Comments about Standtastic 122 KSB 48" Double-Tier Keyboard Stand with Deluxe Bag:

          I needed a two-tier rack with room below to place my Hammond Midi Pedal Board, and my X-style rack wasn't cutting it. I bought the Standtastic and am very satisfied, enough that I'm considering buying a second one--one for studio, one for gigging.

          Initial set-up, using a single allen wrench which is provided, took about 30-40 minutes to tweak to my particular preferences as to keyboard height, space between keyboards, both vertical and lateral--with lots of variation available. The fact that those elements are so customizable is an added plus. Once those things were locked in, no tool is needed and set-up or tear-down takes about one or two minutes max, plus another 15 seconds to zip it into its very cool, compact nylon case. A bit more set-up time than the 10 seconds or so it takes to pop-up a two-tier X-stand, but no big deal, and this stows way more compact. (About same length as a folded X-stand, but way less bulky.)

          Anyone who claims it is difficult or time-consuming to set-up at gigs probably doesn't understand how it works and likely disassembles more pieces than necessary. In fact, if used properly, it remains a single unit, with all parts attached, whether set-up or folded-up. No extra pieces floating around to get lost!

          I found the stand plenty stable for two keyboards, and, unlike an X-stand, no chance of it toppling over forward or backwards. No worries there.

          The only "con" I found is a minor one. If set up against a wall, this stand juts out from the wall farther than my X-stand, but even this can be tweaked a bit on initial set-up. If you are gigging and not pushed against a wall, this is a non-factor.

          Bottom line: this is a cleverly designed, versatile stand that gives more room for pedals than an X-stand and can be folded up and stowed nicely. If you are looking for one stand that can work well in a lot of situations--studio or on-stage, for one, two or (with add-on) even three keyboards, this is a good buy.

          If you don't care about pedal room and you prefer almost instantaneous, blind (or blind-drunk) set-up at gigs, then an X-stand could be a better choice. But if you want more features, more options, and more compact transport--and can handle a minute or two of fold-out, knob-turning and pin pushing--this Standtastic stand lives up to its name and will get the job done nicely.

            I have used this stand for over 25 years, two to three set ups and tear downs per week. It gets used hard, handled rough, and all I ever did is touch up black paint. I use two keyboards and even have the mic boom attachment. This is a well made stand. It will probably outlive me.

                Comments about Standtastic 122 KSB 48" Double-Tier Keyboard Stand with Deluxe Bag:

                i was looking for a multi-tier stand (needed to have an option for 3) with a 2nd tier deep enough for my motif es6. the only other option i could see to solve the 2nd tier depth problem was the ultimate apex series, but those don't have a 3rd tier option from what i could tell (at least not anymore, there were some balance issues apparently) and i wasn't thrilled with the look/design. i originally purchased the 3-tier version of this stand but found it too tall/imposing for regular live gigging though it would work great as a studio fixture capable of holding even 4 or 5 keyboards. so i bought an extra tier for this one, which i can still use if i configure the stand for sit-down playing. if i want to use 3 keyboards standing up, i just use one of my onstage 2-tier "x" stands, which actually works very well. the standtastic's footprint (front to back) is a little larger than a traditional double-braced "x" stand but it's stable, folds up quickly and neatly for transporting (the carrying bag is an awesome bonus), and (for me) it seemed to be the best option when wanting/needing to use a deeper board on the 2nd tier.

                Comments about Standtastic 122 KSB 48" Double-Tier Keyboard Stand with Deluxe Bag:

                I was not prepared for buying a product that did what it said... and did it in spades. But this one did. I really wonder why these aren't any more popular than they are (marketing?)
                The Standtastic KSB 48" keyboard stand is incredibly adjustable, solid as concrete, fits in your pocket! OK, so maybe not in your pocket, but it does fold up pretty small for a stand sooo useful.

                The design is smack-your-head-and-ask, "why didn't somebody do this already?" innovative. Room for your feet and stuff underneath, put any keyboard (or whatever) anywhere you want it, and nearly earthquake-proof stability. Also: once you've got it set "just right", lock it down, and every set-up is absolutely consistent, fast, and simple.

                I realize it's been 4-5 years, but there is a wall mount available. Google ' Standtastic Wall Mount', and follow to LM Products. (no connection - just evangelizing)
                Very solid construction. Arms are strudy, locking pins are rugged
                Great value. Could be cheaper, but what couldn't?!?

                The Perfect Stand

                By Paul Smith

                from St. Louis metro area (southern Illinois)

                Comments about Standtastic 122 KSB 48" Double-Tier Keyboard Stand with Deluxe Bag:

                I've been using various brands of those X-stands for years. Unfortunately, they do not open wide enough at the bottom to accommodate my MIDI pedal controller, which was always placed off to the side. Not ideal, but it worked. This Standtastic 122KSB stand is perfect for my needs. Unlike the X-stands, it can be opened as wide or narrow as required without changing the overall height. Now, both of the manuals and the pedal keyboards are together in a smaller, more manageable footprint...not to mention a more ergonomic alignment. Each tier is adjustable for height and angle. It's also sturdy as a rock. I may have to get another one for gigs so I can leave this one set up in my home studio.
