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.

A classic stand

By 

from Berne, IN

Verified Buyer

Comments about Manhasset M48 Symphony Music Stand:

This stand is functional and lightweight. It's a classic stand, but I wonder about the clasp that holds the tray to the stem. They used to be made of metal, and now it's made of plastic. I guess time will tell if that causes it to be less durable.

Service and delivery comments:

Service was prompt and the product was in excellent condition upon arrival.

        Comments about Manhasset M48 Symphony Music Stand:

        I think my first encounter with Manhasset Music Stands was in 1960. Fifty-seven years later, the quality remains high and it appears to have the same durability I've known for all those years.

          Comments about Manhasset M48 Symphony Music Stand:

          Heavy enough so it won't easily tip over, but not so heavy as to be unwieldy. Well made, and should be the standard for which all music stands are judged. Made in the USA.

          Comments about Manhasset M48 Symphony Music Stand:

          Back in middle school in the 1980's, and high school in the 1990's, the Manhasset stand was one piece of equipment you could count on while learning your instrument. The things were nearly indestructible! Even today in my community band, Manhasset stands that are likely 20 years of production date or older are still in use. Which is what motivated me to purchase this one...but I am slightly disappointed. First, the gauge of the metal on the desk is noticeably thinner...you can nearly bend it with your fingers! Second, the rod connector to the desk is now made of plastic (and I wonder how that will hold up over time). Still, it's a good stand and will function as intended. However, I wish "they made 'em like they used to."

            Purchased this music stand for my grandson. He is in the beginner honor band. He used it at home and loves it. It is so worth the price and so easy to use!!

              They are Music Stands. They do what they are designed to do without a problem.
              The stand is shippen in three components: base, shaft assembly and desk. Each is replaceable separately and there are other option available for each component (plus a new, laser/plasma cut version).
