After 25 years absence from playing classical piano, I returned and begin reviving my keyboard technique on a Yamaha P-155 88note digital piano. This is an older Yamaha keyboard and I searched for a stand , found a stand L 140 associated with this P155, but it seems to be discontinued . My concern in locating a stand is to have the height of the keyboard the same as that of an acoustic grand piano . Yamaha P155 measures 4.5” depth. The 6 foot grand that I . practice on measures 29.5 inches from the floor .Currently the Yamaha is sitting on an X-frame metal stand measuring 30.5 inches from the floor . Sitting at the Yamaha is not comfortable . I’m looking for a different stand and wonder if there’s any style of stand that has the most variety of height adjustments . Thanks for any suggestions !

The problem of most X-style stands is not their height but their wobbliness. I recommend KS7350. it is quite stable, although not as stable as a real piano. Its height is adjustable, and you can add a second tier for a second keyboard if necessary.

The X stands are widely panned. No place for your legs. No place for the keyboard. (That wobbly POS is not a legitimate "place".)
Instead look for a Z stand. Or a four-legged stand.
Or ... some people build their own custom stands. (But they have skills and tools that I quite lack.)

You could try to find more details and dimensions for the L-140 and for the Yamaha L-255 stand meant for the P-255.

Maybe it's close enough(?)

Did they really change anything(?)

Maybe just the support for the triple pedal bar(?)

As you can see, I actually don't have the answers. smile

I made my own stand, I took the dimensions off the L140 and copied it. If you're handy and have a few tools it's pretty easy, I can post the dimensions if you're interested.

I use the X stand on stage once in a while for convenience when I'm only playing one keyboard but even then, I think it looks cheap and unprofessional. I use Z stands at home but have been thinking about this Roland stand for my MP11se.

Mark your stand looks fantastic and very professional congratulations ! I’m curious—if you have a moment what is the height from the floor to the keytop ?...and are you comfortable sitting? Thanks for posting the photo !
Also thanks to divu10 For the Z stand link and recommendation. I’m thinking this kind of stand might be more easy to make adjustments and be sturdy to hold this particular 88 note Yamaha ... might be easier to have a choice of considering Z stands instead of hunting for the discontinued Yamaha stand . My main goals are to get the right height and make sure the stand is strong enough and stable . I really like this older model Yamaha P 155.

Height is 28.5" to keytop, which is the same as my acoustic. Yes it's comfortable, I agree you want to get both pianos at the same height if you can. I had an adjustable stand but found the adjustments were too coarse. You might do better putting some furniture casters under the stand to get it just right.
