I've never used a clip on lamp on my concert grand music rack before. I'm wondering if anyone can recommend one for me?

I really prefer using a long goose-neck lamp that I place behind the rack on the lid of the piano when the lid is closed. But, I'm having trouble finding another one (the last one broke).

I used to have a floor lamp but it wasn't a good quality lamp.

I'd appreciate any and all lighting recommendations. (I don't want track lighting, though).

best wishes,
Valerie

I do not recommend a clip on lamp as they will, eventually, damage your music desk. I think the best lamps are the floor lamps. Get one with a long arm which extends to cover the middle of keyboard with light. I found mine at Home Depot. Believe it or not they (and Lowes) have a nice selection of lamps.

And clip on lamps IMO are guite ugly, even the ones costing several hundred dollars. I have a floor lamp.
