Author multi-rack keyboard stands

Would anybody know where I could get a stand for 3 small keyboards - MoPho, Microkorg, that sort of size

I saw some Jaspers stands but they look pretty big, I don't think mine would fit in there.

cheers!

I've owned a bunch of tiered/a-line/v-line/vertical-post/whatever keyboard stands and finally figured out that InterMetro shelving is the best solution for me.

The adjustible stuff always falls apart or slips/drops gear... it's just a matter of time :(

I bought a 3 tier X Frame from Guitar Center and long, black shelves from Home Depot so I could have my Juno on the top and desktop synths on the shelving.

the A Frames style is adjustable, and you can add more brackets for shorter synths.

and those InterMetro systems looks pretty rad for customization.

thanks guys, will check your suggestions out

The Jaspers are HUGE, but rock solid. I've got the square 4-tier stands and they are really very nice. Never had a problem with slippage or bounce.

I switched from Ultimate tubular A-frame to the metro-shelves on wheels when Costco was selling them 2 years ago... It was right when Matrix posted about it....

standtastic? i just got some wall mounts from them

Speaking of Standtastic... I guess I repeat that you don't have to pay for their expensive wall mount kit. Get industrial strut from Home Depot or similar places -



giorgio
that's what I planning on smile is there a certain spec for the industrial strut? I have always known it as unistrut but I guess like Kleenex that is just a brand name.

Doug. Nice rack lol

What brackets are you using to hold the synths to the wall frames?
StepLogik
Be sure you bolt the brackets to the studs in the wall. If you use drywall anchors you are going to come home one day to a giant mess and busted synths :(

You can use a studfinder (heh) to locate the studs' position in the wall.
dougt
The arms/brackets are Standtastic. The strut is Superstrut (what they sell at HD) and yes the horizontals are bolted into the wall studs every 18 inches.

I have a Jaspers stand and it's very nice. You can buy extra holders for it and space them as you like, so you might be able to fit several small synths next to each other on a tier. The stand is physically big, but it is not heavy, since it's made of some kind of plastic.

I'm talking about this kind of model:

Plastic?? You mean aluminium, surely?

Yes, the pipes and holder bars are alu, the rest of the parts plastic.

Shouldn't write anything when really tired. d'oh!

I had an Apex Ultimate stand one time and it was terrible.
Really wobbly, felt like I was playing on a ship in a storm all the time.

there is supposed to be a small stabilizer leg at the bottom.
If this is missing or not set right it wobbles all over the place.

Its a little sliding black piece of plastic. Doesn't look like much but it is important.
ThinLazy
It was a while ago that owned the Apex stand, but as I recall it
was really shaky even with the stabilizer.

This was my experience with it anyway, YMMV.

what are the knobs good for when they can be hardly reached in an ergonomic way? seriously, i just don't get it
that's what i struggle with, actually.

kneeling in front of the lowest row and using a ladder to reach the top row?

The top 2 rows of synths can be tweaked just fine in standing position and the bottom row when sitting. The advantage with a wall mount setup like this is the top synths aren't further back like they are on a typical angled stand...

Does anyone know where can I get these kinds of wall brackets in the UK?
Randy
I didn't want something that was mounted to the wall, I suppose I don't trust my house, so I built something using some pipe and key clamps. I used smaller versions of the same stuff that is used to build the climbing things in some kid-friendly restaurants.

The parts are rated at 1000 pounds.

I wish there was something like the UMJ-1 available on the market! What a beauty:
