You don't have a Manhasset MH-48? Get one. You'll keep it for life, because it lasts that long. I teach in two schools and the majority of our music stands are Manhassets built BEFORE 1970 (when the bottom collar design changed). The only times we need to buy new ones is if our program grows and we need more, or if inferior stands from other manufacturers give up the ghost. I only specify Manhasset stands at my schools. The only thing I wish were better about these stands was that the paint finish would be a little less prone to scratching.

The classic, but...

I just received one of these stands, the first I have ordered in a few years. The piece that connects the post to the desk is now made of plastic. Disappointing.

Comments about Manhasset M48 Symphony Music Stand:

This M48 Symphony Music Stand works as promised - stable and the height adjustment stays where I put it. I've owned this stand for about six months and quite happy with it.

I like my music stand can shift up and down with ease.

M48 Symphony music stand. I like that you can place 3 sheets of music on stand. I like how you can slide the music stand up and down.

Best Music Stand to own

Comments about Manhasset M48 Symphony Music Stand:

Have had this stand for almost 20 years at home. Got tired of my Hamilton folding stand constantly collapsing suddenly. The Manhasset stand has not failed. Works like new. Just purchased 2 more of these stands for my kids who play. Got the one that attaches to a cymbal stand for my son's drum set and the orchestra one with shelf. Also added the plastic fee covers. Well made as always. The only change is the mast attachment point to the desk is now made of plastic. Hope this holds up as my original one is metal.

Good Quality but not in my house.

Comments about Manhasset M48 Symphony Music Stand:

Stand arrived in perfect condition. Low cost. Sets up and adjustment of height is very nice. Stand seems perfect in just about all ways. (I really like the stand.) So what?s not to like? I bought this to use in my home. I planned on using this in my formal living room that has a very nice wooden floor. (Same room as a grand piano.) It?s not clear from the pictures or the description that there are no feet or any type of rubber, or plastic on the legs to prevent scratching of what ever floor you place this music stand on. The legs are just bent metal. One of the three legs has edges pointed and sharp enough to cut your hand if you are not careful. It would definitely scratch a wooden floor. The other two legs are sharp as well but not quite as bad. As long as you don?t have to worry about scratching your floor this stand will most likely be fine for you. Now I have to find a way to make sure the next stand I order will work with a finely finished wooden floor.

Comments about Manhasset M48 Symphony Music Stand:

Not only do I use these stands in my classroom with only the occasional need to tighten the bottom bolt, but I keep one in my home studio. I've never had to retire one yet.

Comments about Manhasset M48 Symphony Music Stand:

Everything works properly, except for, when you turn it, it makes clicking sound, but we don't know why. Other than that, it is very nice and solid.

Most Reliable Music Stand

Comments about Manhasset M48 Symphony Music Stand:

Manhasset stands are simply the best. After growing up with these stands in our middle and high school bands, I bought one for at home. Well made and sturdy this stand is a joy to use. After my flimsy folding Hamilton stand kept collapsing under the weight of my music I knew it was time to invest in a decent stand. Have had this stand for several years now and added the floor protectors. A must have for any musician.

Great product

Comments about Manhasset M48 Symphony Music Stand:

I decided that my wire stand was too flimsy and weak for long-term use, and I looked for some Wenger stands (these are the ones we have at our school, and they are amazing - but unfortunately they aren't sold anywhere except for the retail stores, where shipping is expensive) but couldn't find any. Because I needed to use a WWBW gift card, I bought this stand instead. The stand is well made and sturdy, but note that the desk is made of a thin metal, less than 1/8 inch thick. This isn't a problem for me, since I don't move the desk constantly up and down. If you keep it in one place, this thickness is great. The height of the stand is ideal - it is around 2.5 ft at its lowest and it reaches over 5 ft. Overall, this is a quality product - and like others commented, I think it will last a long time. :)
