Great looking stand.

I have noticed more and more musicians using digital displays with remote foot control for changing pages. So eventually a big stand like this may not be needed.

Sorry LB, the metric pedal will never replace the foot... ask any imperial piano player!

I think music stands are one of the hardest things to design, hard to get them to look elegant and graceful (and adjustable) yet strong without looking overly clunky and bulky this is a nice blend of wood and metal

Have your say...
