Very light weight (good for travel, bad for holding itself down, but it's what I expected for this price. The top section detaches from the stand a little to easily (just slips on, no catch) and I've managed to detach it during a show by trying to pick the stand up and move it while playing - you need to pick it up from the bottom section to move it. Also, If you get one, throw some contact cement on the rubber feet to give them a little traction as they slip off and bounce away easily. I'd buy one again if I needed another portable stand as I don't think you can do much better in this price range.

Let me start by saying that I do not find this stand to be all that light weight. Of course that is probably because I am used to high end camping and bicycling equipment and this is definitely not high end equipment. It weighs more than an acoustic guitar.

That aside, I found what I believe is a very serious design flaw in this stand, one that limits the weight of what the stand will hold to just a very thin book. The part of the stand that actually holds the music attaches to the lower part of the stand by one thin piece of metal. This thin piece of metal attaches at the very bottom of the part holding the music. As a result, the music is not balanced on the lower part of the stand, but cantilevered out from it. I see that this design lets the stand fold up very neatly, but the piece on which the music is cantilevered will not support any serious weight without bending.

For an inexpensive stand with limited use, this stand is not a bad buy. Just don't expect a workable stand if you need to have a book of music on it.

    Comments about Musician's Gear Folding Music Stand:

    Excellent choice for a low cost stand ... understanding that it won't have all the high tech of more expensive ones and sometimes you might have to fidget a bit. Sometimes the clips (center of upright part) are stiff. I like that they are black - good move on the part of the maker. I bought 12, and have just received my second dozen. There is no carrying bag - it is the stand only.

        Music stand for ukulele band, very portable and easy to carry, sturdy enough for 3 ring music binder. Easy set up and break down.

        Not the Best :(

        By 

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Musician's Gear Folding Music Stand:

        I bought this so it would hold up my sons very thin guitar instructional music book. As soon as I put the book on the sheet holder fell backwards. I had to almost overtighten the screw in order for it to hold. This is a very bad design flaw. Unless you are holding just a couple sheets of music I would recommend spending a c ouple more dollars and buying a better designed stand.

        Music stand

        Comments about Musician's Gear Folding Music Stand:

        Cheap but good. Used each day by both of my 9 year old twins. Easy for them to adjust. Perhaps not the most elegant, nor the most sturdy, but does the job.

        Worked for Me

        Comments about Musician's Gear Folding Music Stand:

        After 41 years, the old band got together for a benefit gig and with limited practice as a group, I used the music stand to hold my music so I could "cheat" when necessary. It worked great. The black color blended with the other gear and could hardly be noticed.

        Great stand for the money

        Comments about Musician's Gear Folding Music Stand:

        Actually I made speaker mounts from the upper section and placed them on these stands for a pair of Logitech Z2300 satelite speakers that I use for my Yamaha keyboard. The black stands match the backs of the speakers and give plenty of height and swivel adjustment. Great for small gigs. Just another use for these inexpensive stands.
