These are absolutely perfect for use with my beginning chime choir. I love them!
These music stands are a great first step for using a table-top music stand. Although their narrowness makes them better for single sheets than double, they are a terrfiic value for the money. Since they do take some set-up to transform the flat cardboard to a functional music stand, it would have been helpful to have some instructions included in the package. But once I looked at the picture on the website again and figured them out, I really appreciated their flat, store-able aspect.
They are definitely sturdy cardboard, but they are only cardboard. I can't imagine that they will last forever, but I didn't pay a "forever" price!
I'm so very glad I found these!!!

Comments about Giardinelli Cardboard Music Stand:

I also like one of the other reviews ordered two because when I have two sheets of music I'm trying to learn one is not big enough and for the price they are worth it. They are easy to store when not in use and easy to set up on my desk.
For what you are purchasing and when ordering from Musicians Friend with no shipping cost... what else can you say?
No complaint..

    As a throwaway, this is pretty good, although the kids ripped the first one trying to set it up. Instructions should come with it.

    Very Handy

    Comments about Giardinelli Cardboard Music Stand:

    I'm glad I got one of these. Actually I got two. Often I practice using a little folding table to put stuff on like picks, tuner, charts, etc. This cardboard stand is perfect as I can set it on the table and view a chart at the proper angle when needed. I store it unfolded in a magazine rack; takes about 10 seconds to fold it into shape. Of course I have regular music stands but am usually too lazy to set one up for this type of use.

    Works fine for single sheets; a book of more than a few pages would probably be pushing the limits unless you bent the tabs down & taped the area up.
    It's cardboard. Might last a good while if treated gently.

    Acceptable

    By OnlyTheHunter

    Comments about Giardinelli Cardboard Music Stand:

    You see what you get - a cardboard stand. It won't hold really heavy or thick items, due to the protrusions from the bottom flaps, but for thin booklets or a few sheets, this is a good value on a budget. However, you almost have to rip it to fold in the flaps. I had to consult the picture to properly put it together. Avoid unless it is light use, then it is servicible.

      This little stand works perfectly for me at my desk for practicing with CDs and videos on the computer. To assemble, it helped to look at the photo of the stand for guidance. It holds sheets of music well. I have not tried music books on it. I'm happy with this purchase.

        Great little stand to use on the bedside....My only negative comment is it really is too narrow for two sheets side by side...so get two! They are inexpensive

            At first it was a bit difficult to figure out how to put it together. I use this for my pre k piano class with keyboards when we work on the floor. It is a great height and weight.

                  Price was great but the thing was hard to put together and fell apart after 3 uses. I don't think I'd buy it again
                  I had to consult the picture on the website to figure out how to put it together and then the tabs bent the wrong way.
                  It's cardboard but what can you say. It worked for what I wanted it to.
                  Great price!
