Hi guys!! I have finally settled on the yamaha p125 as my first digital piano! I have been doing so much research and thinking and I'm just happy this part of the decision making is over. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a stand that I could purchase with it? I have been thinking about the $100 Yamaha furniture stand for it but $100 just seems like a lot for a stand. Are there any others that are good? Thank you!

K&M Omega stand is nice looking and very sturdy. I have one that I have used with VPC1, ES8 and currently use for a P125.

If you buy it as a package, you can probably get the Yamaha stand with the 3 pedal unit at some savings. The pedal unit makes it look a lot nicer and you won't have to worry about the pedal walking away from you when you use it.

I did a fair amount of research when I bought my p125 and ended up with the Stagg MSX-A1 stand. Rock solid, more than capable of accommodating the p125's weight safely, both height and width are adjustable, and because it's not a X-stand it doesn't get in the way of my legs.

Search Amazon.com (or Sweetwater.com) for

z stand

There are a bunch of them, at various prices.

I switched (after several years) from an X-stand to this:

I should have gotten the new stand when I bought the DP. It's nice to have room for my knees.

Unconventional, but I used a lifetime 6' adjustable height table (because I already owned one) and it worked out great for almost 2 years until I upgraded my P125.

(I had it set on the kids height setting, also I only paid $130 for it, so do some price comparison shopping). There was plenty of space for me to keep a light, and my music books. Now that I'm selling my P125 I'm happy that I can sell it and yet still use the table.

Some of those Z stands are as low as $60. i'd have a hard time passing on one of those.

If you are handy, you can easily rig your pedal unit to the stand. My stand has 4 round legs, about 7/8" diameter. I purchased a 6 foot length of 1" x 1" angle aluminum. I placed it at floor level across the backsides of the two rear legs, and bolted it to those legs with little U bolts. My 3 pedal unit pushes against it when I pedal, and goes nowhere. It was about a $12 operation that took about 15 minutes of my time. And, it's pretty unobtrusive. You could do something similar with a Z stand.

I have the K&M Omega for my p121 and definitely like it. The p125 is a thick DP and on its lowest setting it’s still a couple inches higher U1, but exactly the same as a Perzina UP129. It doesn’t bother me, but it is something to be aware of if you aren’t very tall. It’s sturdy though and I have a second keyboard on top, a laptop, and drum pads on it. Works great. If you aren’t going to do all that, the furniture style stand might be your best bet until 2 years down the line you want a different keyboard or add another manual to play the organ on... a nice, sturdy, upgradable, metal stand is a really nice option for the future.

Can't speak for other stands but I use a K&M Omega as well and it's great. Easy to adjust / disassemble, not bad to look at and rock solid stable.
So far I've used it with a VPC1, and ES8 a P125 and it currently has an ES520 sitting on it.

Cheers
