This is my go-to music stand. It’s sturdy, and doesn’t tip over in the wind or heavy binder of music. I literally take it with me everywhere – I keep it in my car, just in case! --Beth
Perfect for orchestras, school bands, and individual musicians that demand high quality and durability. This is our most popular music stand. The Manhasset Symphony Stand is used by more schools than all other music stands combined. Our Symphony Stand desk is 20" wide x 12 1/2" high. The height of this music stand varies infinitely from 26" to 48" (lip to floor), with a maximum overall height of 60 1/2 inches. 10 year warranty.
Manhasset 48 Black Standard Music Stand:
Rugged, all-aluminum lightweight desks are ribbed for extra strength!
Powder-coated, glare-free black textured finish resists scratching and chipping!
Easy, automatic no-knob friction-tilt neck delivers constant tension at any tilt position!
Solid-brass bearings, greaseless heavy-duty chrome inner shaft, and the "Magic Finger Clutch" provides one-hand friction grip.
Heavy-guage, all-steel welded base provides excellent stability.
needed a stand for gigs. Need durability and the ability to handle heavy folders of music and method books. Portables are made with plastic parts that will eventually break. Though a bit awkward to carry, this stand should last a lifetime. Whenever possible I buy for the long haul and I know, from having grown up using these stands as a student, it will hold up. I haven't received it yet and I am already pleased with my purchase!
Best Answer:No, the vertical cannot be locked. But I've never had a problem with it shifting to a position on its own. It can move manually two ways... the stand can go up or down and the part which holds the book can be manually tilted forward or backward. It has a stiff enough action to it and i've only ever used light books or paper music, never anything ultra heavy, so I've never had a problem.
No the vertical height cannot be locked. Most times it has enough resistance to hold itself up, but if you have a really heavy score then it tends to drop. You can buy a cheep clamp form walmart or something to clamp it, but it's not too rigid on its own.
not as the stand comes standard. Manhassat may make a device to do so, or you might find one by a third party manufacturer. I wish it did. The reading band I play with has a big, heavy book and it would be nice to lock the stand where I want it.
Best Answer:Manhasset makes really sturdy adjustable stands. It does adjust for height: from about average waist/hip height to average chest height. The music rack changes angle, also, from flat (horizontal) to fully vertical in either direction. Also very sturdy when extended...a terrific buy for home studio or school. We also have a bright purple Manhasset stand that gets many compliments, in addition to the standard matte black. Hope this helps!
I own a music school and Lansdale, PA and this stand is the only type we use. Its durable, light weight and a great price from West Music. The stand can raise up to about 5 feet, which comes in very handy for performing standing up. I hope I could help. Cheers, Dave Motivation Music Center
This is the best stand I've bought for my band and general music room. I own 50 Manhasset stands. Its sturdy and light weight. Even my students can move the stand with ease. Yes, you can adjust the stand by height. Also, at the end of class my students turn the top down so we can stack the stands on the stand rack.
