Most stands i use do not have a comfortable level, but i know a guy, quite short, and he manages to have a lower then average stand...

Thanks



The Apex (Ultimate Support)..can adjust from 2 inches off the floor...to....4 feet off the floor..

There are 2 problems:

- Looking up at a computer for extended periods will hurt your neck. I tell you from experiecne.

- I wouldn't balance anything expensive on the second tier of a keyboard stand. I knock and your imac is history.

Chony,

In my case the laptop is held in place by a couple Velco strips and never leaves the platform. You can turn the platform upside down and the laptop stays in place. And, as you can see the platform sits just over an inch above the top of the keyboard, but does not interfere with access to any of the keyboard's buttons. No stiff neck either.



You can find detailed plans for constructing the platform Here

Good Luck,

Gary

I know where there is one of these for sale used: http://www.samedaymusic.com/product--ULTAX90
I'll have to ask the price, but it will be reasonable.
Let me know if you are interested.

I suggest the Apex stand also. When I was using my laptop, the second tier held laptop nice and straight, as high or low as you need or want.

BTW - am I the only one who understood Shim to mean that he wanted the second tier to bend to become straight? I think we see many double keyboard stands with the upper keyboard tilted. He wants his second tier to be straight so the laptop won't slide. Am I right, Shim?

Apex stands are a real pain if you use foot pedals and you sit to play. Great for standing though.

cass. Indeed your right! That is my main question... As the imac is a bit heavy and can fall...

Thanks everyone for the suggestion, I would get the apex but its a bit out of the budget now... Thanks again

Shim, Ultimate, On-Stage and QuikLok have several add-on second tiers that can be used straight. You shold be able to find something for around $50 or so.
