If you expect this stand to be as stable as a standard studio stand, but as portable as a wire stand, this is not for you. If you expect to be able to run over it with your truck and remain undamaged, forget it. If you expect to play outside in a gale and not have it blow over, this stand is not for you. Simply, it does what it does well: compromises between weight, portability, stability, durability, and usability.
I use this stand frequently indoors and outdoors, and it's especially nice for the times when I have to have an extra stand at home for guests. I especially like the retractable "wings" that let you spread out music sheets.
As for assembly, I don't know why anyone should have a problem with this. It's almost intuitive. Disassembly, the same. And to make it easy to pack it all away, just put a piece of tape on each leg and the base so that, when the parts are in proper position, the strips on the pieces are aligned.
As I wrote, it does what it does well.
I have owned my Petersen Stand for about 7 years.
Not unexpectedly, two fiber spacers have disinegrated, emailed Petersen Designs to find if they were available and, if so, the cost to replace spacers. They sent them by return mail, at no cost.
I bought this stand 1-2 months back and when I first got it, it looked very cheap. I proceeded to give this product a shot but over time realized what a mistake I had made. The base is shaky and cheap and the sheet and music holder is very user unfriendly.
I purchased this stand along with the matching bag designed for it 2 years ago. It is now broken. :-( As I read in someone else's review today, the legs are sometimes difficult to remove and that is exactly where my stand just broke. There is no way to fix it as the legs slide into a plastic slot which just partially fractured away. I also found that my accessory tray (which I love and fits on a standard Manhasset stand) would not fit on this stand which has a larger center pipe. Also, the slide on tray that comes with this stand is much too narrow and I have had music fly off of it even at indoor concerts because it will not accommodate much music. I also have trouble getting the case to close properly with all the parts inside. I am usually the LAST one to leave after cleaning up my "stuff" after a concert.
This is a decent stand for what it is, but I think it is too cheaply made for the price. I've gone through three of these stands in the last six years - the head of the stand folds in half (for easy storage), but the knobs to tighten and loosen it get off track easily, so there went stand number one. On stand number two, the bit that is used to tighten the stand to keep it in place when adjusting the height literally just snapped in half. I'm on stand number three right now - it was built with the tolerances too tight, so putting it together and getting it apart is a real pain. That being said, I haven't found any other portable stands on the market that are better. If you have room, just buy a real non-folding stand. Otherwise, this is way better than the wire stand you're used to from middle school, and until something else comes out, it's not bad.
Hate to be negative, but I have 2 of these stands. The price is right, but one continuosly tips over when a leg gives out of the track - with no more weight than RealBook 1. The other stand suffers from a split tension ring. I can only use it when I am sitting and willing to strain to see the music on the un-extended lowest level. That one also will tip over when a leg moves out of the track, though less often.
This stand was a piece of plastic junk! The legs kept falling out, I cut my hand trying to loosen the height adjustment. It constantly stayed stuck closed. Would not fit in the case easily. I have to say, Customer Service at WWBW was extremly helpful in giving me a full credit for the item. I would not recommend it-go for the Peak folding music stand that they also offer.
I bought this stand before going to college. I have found it worth every penny. It adjusts in every way a typical stand does and is very sturdy. I use it regularly at basketball games and other odd location performances. My pep band director is even considering buying a set for the pep band to limit the number of wire stand issues (i.e. falling down the bleachers) If you have any need for a portable stand this is the one to get.
I love, love, love this stand. After years and years of using the basic, flimsy, ugly standard wire stands, this stand is the stand to replace all of those. The construction is solid, it extends higher than any simple wire stand, looks great, and if you play outdoors at all, you can use magnets to hold your music instead of clips that never hold or just tear music! For the price of two or three wire stands (which any high performing musician will go through) the value of this stand is worth it!
I appreciated the aluminum extension when I took the stand on a tour in Europe. It was excellent for getting the necessary height for the percussion row. This stand holds most of the heavy music very well, but the available "junk" tray will not fit on it. In addition, we bought it some time ago and have found that the plastic parts can be broken easily, especially around the legs. Finally, temperature often causes various parts to "jam," so taking these apart can be nearly impossible after a vigorous rehearsal. Keep improving it. Thanks.
