Hi

I’m giving serious consideration to buying the Kawai MP11SE but it’s too tall to fit under my studio desk when I’m not playing it.

Is anyone aware of a stand, on wheels, that can support its weight plus be able to raise and lower so that it could slide under a desk (I.e. too low to play) but can rise to playing height when slide our from under the desk?

Thank you.

Hello Elphaba, welcome to the forum.

That's not something I'm familiar with, I'm afraid.

I wonder if a customer-built stand would be the best solution?

Kind regards,
James

I love my MP11se but that's a pretty heavy instrument to move up, down or sideways. The only thing I can think of would be something like a cart on rollers that you can roll out then roll back under the desk. Of course you'd want a heavy duty cart with good casters!

Perhaps raise the desk up a bit higher instead of an adjustable stand? You can buy castors separately and it's not much effort to attach them to something with solid wood legs too.

Maybe it's just not the right spot?

Even at this price, I don't think it can lift a MP11se!

Apparently it can. The website says it has a 176.2 lb capacity and the MP11SE weighs 75 lbs so it's well within the specified load.

Its gonna wobble left<->right.

I love my now discontinued Ultimate Support system.... but you need the cross(?) bracing or you get wobble. I hate wobble.

What about this sit-stand desk from Summit?

https://cdn11.bigcommerce.com/s-bj9...26849.1504168021.jpg?c=2&imbypass=on

Compared to the one on Sweetwater, this one is a bargain at around $2,000.
It seems like it can go very low/high and comes in three different colors.

Finding a desk with a keyboard tray that can fit an MP11SE will be tough. I have yet to find one at any price.

However, if you just want a good sit-stand desk to set the MP11SE on, the following seems to be a reasonably priced option:

What!? That's an awfully high price for IKEA-style furniture.
