Works for now


WOW .. I'm surprised that wallet didn't make the back of the kb too high !!! ...

How do you handle the two front support legs on the Apex getting in the way of pedals ?

I just put the small pedals in front of the right support leg no problems when I use one.

I tried my newer pedals and they are high enough to use over the leg. Years ago I had thin stomp pedals that were too thin. I bought my Apex in 1984, and except for a few mars, it is as good as new. I need a double tier sometimes and am pressing the old girl back in service.

I read somewhere that the Roland V-Stands (and possibly their imitators, like Ultimate) always have a permanent slight down angle on the arms. For those with this problem that don't have a wallet as thick as Donny's perhaps it might be worth taking a look at them.

Pretty good cable management and pedal access, too, from what I see....

But I still think that a non-horizontal keyboard is bad for your technique (unless it's higher or lower that normal).

Fran has a Roland V stand .....
Its a nice idea & design...
but it gathers dust in the studio....vs using his Apex deluxe...definitly not for me ....great for a single KB but when adding a top tier KB & attached mic boom to it just becomes an unstable, transport, hassle.....not my cup of tea.

No down angle discernible, and quite stable with a second keyboard. Has a little side movement and not as stable as the Apex, however the Apex is hopeless at placing pedals.
btw Ultimate supply the v-stand to Roland, they are not imitating.
