I forgot my cheap X stand in a studio a while ago, now I'm considering replacing it with a more stable type of stand. In my experience, Z stands are pretty stable, but not practical to carry around. I'm looking at some table stands from König & Meyer. 18810, 18953, and 18950. Anyone have any experience with any of those? Or are there other options I should consider? I want something that's stable, but also reasonably portable.

I've been using one like the K&M 18950 from Onstage Stands with my Yamaha P-120. The K&M 18950 looks sturdier in the picture. I like the table design, because I can get my legs under it more easily to use the pedals. It folds up flat and is easy to transport.

Roland KS-18Z

When folded, it is very compact.

18950 fan here.

I recall that the 18953 is a little less deep, but has a lower minimum height setting.

Kind regards,

It looks the dimensions of the 18953 are such that the rubber feet on the underside of the RD could get in the way of placing it properly on the stand, so I went ahead and ordered the larger, heavier, and pricier 18950. And also the 14065 keyboard bench.

I got it today. Really sturdy, and the bench fits underneath it when I don't use it. If you set the stand to the proper width, the rubber feet on the Roland fits into some holes in it. No chance of anything moving then.
