Our Perspective

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.
  • 10-year warranty!


  • Desk: 20" wide x 12-1/2" high
  • Stand height: 26" to 48" (lip to floor)

can the vertical height be locked?
Jerry M on Aug 9, 2014
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.

The stand in the picture appears solid, however the description implies this is an adjustable stand... Can you please clarify if thye stand has height adusting capability?
Thank you!
irene v on Dec 9, 2012
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!
