There's no way I can seem to use the pedal easily with my current X shaped adjustable framed stand, as the frame impacts my knees. I've been avoiding pedal use as a result of this. The only way I can actually play comfortably is if I put my leg through the frame! That's fine but it takes about 10 seconds of intense exercise to get in and out of!

I was thinking of buying the Roland KS-10Z but I don't think it will go low enough. I might have to buy a new chair for that. Something that can go quite low as you'd be able to do with an adjustable X shaped frame.

Something like this, but that's adjustable!

Thank you

I like K&M gear.
The stand I have in my signature line is great for gigging---very quick to pack and unpack, very sturdy.

There is also a very good Yamaha stand: LG800.

Thanks,

How low could either of those go?

This K&M one can go low enough "600 mm" for me. And it says it could hold a full size keyboard

I would not get a Z stand I would get a table stand where everything is clear in the middle.

I agree K&m makes a quality product.

I believe the 18820 foldable stand and 18953 stand have the same minimum height.

I have the 18810 non foldable stand and it is a very pretty sturdy chunk of steel.

I could see an advantage to have four legs if you are someone who plays hard.

I bought the Monolith model made by Quiklok which could answer your needs.

After I bought mine, I had to have the 'arms' of the stand cut to be made shorter. The lowest position setting for my previous keyboard was still too high as it was a very thick keyboard. The stand folds flat which is nice for transportation.

Here's a link ...

I bought the K&M 18820. Foldable and can go as low as 60 cm. Seems to be the only one that has those exact features. Monolith Quiklok didn't show up in any searches.
