I wonder if anyone got one of those?
I ordered mind two weeks ago in a local musoc store we have here.
Humm it s also back order ,maybe next wek,i wil get ut.
The pianist that i play with ,does have one and lend it to me a couple of times.
Pretty nice,t folds like really compact,and also mostly hard plastic.
Once that it is closed,pretty much like a music folder size.
I also like all the esasy position you can get with it!
Only down side,the top section where you put your music does nt swivel side ways.

That looks like it would be quite flimsy, especially when folded to its maximum height. But I'd like to be surprised that it is sturdy enough for regular use, and hence order one.

It is pretty sturdy,yes the look does give you that impression,but i was surprise myself when i used my friend s one.
I used a two inches thick book,without any problems. I guess if you do have a huge heavy book,it might slide down,but i ll kmow more when i do get mind here.

I have been using one of these for several years. It has been sturdy and reliable. The lip for the desk is too simply short, and thus using it in a traditional scenario where you pull music out of a folder resting on a stand can be problematic. Perhaps newer models have been adjusted, but I can guarantee you that eventually page turns = music on the floor if you have any but the skinniest folder behind your music.

That said, I continue to use mine because the rest of the design has proved absolutely solid.

I used one for a few years. Ordered it from England and it was expensive. I did love the foldability and the compact size. It’s the quickest music stand to set of any design… Literally takes about 10 seconds. But after a couple of years it won’t hold heavy books anymore. I contacted the company and they told me it’s out of warranty.

Yesterday i used it again,and that lip where the music goes is still wide enoigh for good thick book.
I understand that maybe after a few years that stand maybe go down by itself like Soybean experienced..
Still is a cool stand.
