Our Perspective

What I like about this Orff stand is it was designed by us!  We put our heads together, looked at what we would want an Orff instrument stand to do if we were still in the classroom and came up with this stand.  It fits your bass xylophones or metallophones as well as the sopranos and altos, or tenor/altos in the case of Sonor instruments.  It’s easy to switch from one size of instrument to another and then adjust once you get there.  Here’s the part I really like, no tools needed, ever.   -Judy


Finally, an affordable, tool-free cart that fits most Orff instruments! The ease of use and effortless transportation makes it a must for any classroom. Height is easily adjustable on Basic Beat BBV567 with the push of a button. The caster wheels make transporting Orff instruments a breeze, and they lock to secure its placement.



  • Easy height adjustment between standard and reverse position.
  • Diatonic soprano and alto instruments use the standard position
  • Bass instruments use the reverse position.
  • Tool-free assembly.
  • Push button adjustment.
  • Caster wheels.
  • Can be used with most major brands of Orff instruments.



  • Included: 1 Rolling Cart
  • Fits: Sopranos, Alto, and Bass Xylophones or Metallophones as well as Sonor Tenor/Altos Xylophones or Metallophones
  • Assembly: No Tools Required
  • Wheels: Locking Caster Wheels

Item recommended by another teacher. I need to get the instruments off the floor to preserve them.

We wanted these for our Music Classroom to get our instruments off the floor and height level for the children.

Will this stand fit the Sonor Short Scale Bass Xylophone?
A shopper on Mar 14, 2014
Will this stand fit my Sonor Bass Metallophone and/or Sonor Bass Xylophone? Also, I need to know how many inches high my Bass Sonor's would be from the floor to the highest point of the stand or instrument (whichever is higher). Hoping they will fit with a stand in my small storage area.
Multisensory A on Nov 25, 2013
Will this fit different brands of orff instruments like sonor and Suzuki etc.?
A shopper on Aug 23, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I use them with my Peripole Bass Xylophone and my Suzuki Bass Metallophone. I did have to put "Covers" (toilet paper tubes stapled shut) on the tops of the vertical parts of the stand because they were scratching my instruments.
Will the width adjust to accommodate extended range instruments like the palisono models? or shorter instruments like the suzuki models?
Shannon on Oct 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, This stand will adjust to both the extended range and shorter range instruments.
My room is carpeted. Will the stands roll on carpet?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes! The stand is very durable and rolls easily on the carpet in my room. I have a very short 'berber' type carpet. One warning, Studio 49 Bass Xylophone does not fit on the stand. Neither does my Peripole. Only my Lyons (which is a very tall Bass) fits because the uprights on the stand are so tall.
Would this hold a Small Chromatic Alto Glock?
Thomas P on Sep 30, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I don't think so. This is really more for xylophones and metallophones. Check out the Basic Beat rolling tables. I use those for my Glocks.
Why is it called: Push button adjustment? I don't see how to do this.
A shopper on Mar 4, 2013
BEST ANSWER: There are holes in the vertical supports through which a metal "bubble" button protrudes. To adjust the height, you loosen the tightening knobs, press in on the button, and raise/lower the sides.
Will this fit a Studio 49 bass xylo or metallophone?
A shopper on Nov 15, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will. In the picture, it is shown as it would be set up for holding a bass instrument. The end sections come off and flip over to raise or lower the shelves as needed to fit the different voices of your Orff xylophones and metallophones.
How do you use the velcro to secure the bass xylophone to the stand/?
A shopper on Nov 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can apply the Velcro to the bottom of the resonator box and stand, but it's definitely not required. Our educational consultant doesn't think it's necessary to use it at all, but it is an option if you feel like the instrument needs some extra support.
Will this fit Sonor Global Beat bass xylos?
Kirrili on Oct 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Definitely! This is made to fit most brands and all sizes.
Does this hold soprano and alto xylophones fairly securely?
woodrumma81 on Oct 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this will hold both the soprano and alto sizes very well. These are adjustable in height so you can use these will all sizes of orff instruments. These are great for bass sized instruments, too.
Does this work with Peripole Bass Xylophone and Metallophones?
Kathy H on Apr 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: yes, this stand will work with both of those instruments, and should work with most orff instruments in general.
Will this stand fit a Studio 49 BX?
A shopper on Nov 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes; This stand is meant to be compatible with the Studio 49 BX
Whill this rolling stand also work for bass bars and Contra Bass bars? I'd like to get them off of the ground and make them easier to move around.
Desiree C on Aug 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This stand will not work with bass or contra bass bars.
How high off of the ground can this hold the instruments?
Thomas P on Sep 30, 2013
BEST ANSWER: It's adjustable. My kids stand at the instruments. The way it is pictured, it's set up for bass instruments. If you use it for alto or soprano xylophones, you would flip the end pieces over which puts the bracket that the instrument rests on higher.
