I have one of these...just got it. Absolutely perfect for my electronic keyboard needs...will probably get 2-3 more. One slight issue (I can live with ONLY if necessary). Can more bulky, heavier castors/wheels be put on it? Home Depot, here at West, Uline? Do they screw off or pop off? Anyone have a link if there is a heavy duty castor or wheel? Would the ones on Universal Rolling Orff stand fit? If so, can I get them? That stand is nice but too bulky for my needs...this table is PERFECT except for slight wobble (even when wheels locked). Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
Best Answer:No, it doesn't fold up; you'd have to remove the crossbar every time to do that. However, it's easy to telescope up and down, so you can make it take up less vertical space that way.
I have eight of these and use them at all different levels to hold one contrabass bar each (the wheels lock to keep them in place) two glockenspiels, and chimes. I drape the table with purple velvet and lay out the chimes needed for worship and they look great on our chancel. When the children lay their chimes down, they don't make a sound on the velvet.
No, they do not fold up, but are they ever great- You,or your students, can easily move them with instruments on them to another part of the room to make room for dancing, ensemble practice, and configurations down the hall in the gym for concerts or informances.
No, it doesn't fold up, but this is a great table! I use them for glockenspiels, my small log drums, bongos, etc. I bought three of them and plan to buy two more. I just roll them out of the way when I need the space. Artie
Best Answer:Laura, I don't think a bass xylophone would be safe on this table. I have four of these tables and love them - but I use them for glockenspiels, small log drums and bongo drums. I use Basic Beat rolling instrument stands for all sizes of my xylophones and metallophones. I think they might even cost a little less than the tables . . . Artie
Hi Laura, I would not put a bass xylo on this stand, because I think it would be too tall. I ordered a different stand, same manufacture, for the bass and alto, and it took me a while to make sure I used it securely. The stands are definitely durable and practical. I use sopranos on these tables. Chris
I don't know whether it "fits" or not, but it is definitely designed for lighter instruments if you ask me. I use mine for glockenspiels. A bass on this table would be top heavy/unstable. There is a DIFFERENT Basic Beat stand which is perfect for a bass, alto or soprano.
Best Answer:I have bought several different orff stands over the years and finally decided to replace all of the soprano & alto/tenor orff xylophones, glockenspiel, and met allophones with this table stand. First, it is easier to store the instruments as legs of the carts don't get in each other's way and both ends of the cart are the same size. Second, these tables are much sturdier than any of the other carts that I have bought. Disadvantage is that the instruments are not "attached" to the carts but I've never had one fall off in rolling the carts or in having the students play them. Advantage is that they are easier to move onto stage for performance because the instruments can be lifted off the carts and then they are not so heavy to lift onto the stage. The metal supported wheels also lock and unlock easily and are much more durable than the plastic wheels and locks on the other stands
Eileen, these tables worked out great for me. I just set the instruments on there and didn't secure them at all (unlike some other carts which require some good velcro). We, and by we I mean my students and I, move them several times a day. The students hold onto the cart not the instrument when moving them, so in two years of using these carts I've never had one fall over.
I actually did not try to secure them and haven't really had any issues with my two glocks sliding on the table. I do know some people use those foam alphabet blocks (that some of the classrooms have) to keep them from sliding on the table.
I use these only for glockenspiels. It accommodates 2 glocks and there is a 'lip' around the edge that keeps them from spilling. The table isn't very glossy and slick, so I don't have sliding problems when moving them. Hope this helps.
I use one at my school for my keyboard. I have a small room and it's so easy to move the keyboard out of the way when we do moving activities. You need to move it carefully - it tipped on me the first time and I learned to hold the keyboard when rolling it.
Does the adjustable height refer to the range of motion of the top part or does the table top literally move from 19" off the ground to only 34"? Basically, i want to know the max height of the table top as measured from the ground. Many thanks.
