I want to get a two tier keyboard stand, to put an imac on the second tier.

My question is, will the tier bend to become straight? I don't need my imac sliding down...

Thanks.

How about something like this:

laptop mount

maybe you could fix it to your current stand?

Quick-Lock makes a number of two-tier stands that are more than adequate, heavy-duty and relatively inexpensive. I use the QL-742, which was recently replaced by the QL-642.

Quick-loc has accessory shelves that attach to their stands and work well for a laptop or mixer...I have one and it works super.
I use the right hand side for laptop and the left for my Mackie mixer.

Also, I have a on stage stand (2 tier) and the tier arms are adjustable in angle, so you couls put your own long shelf on as well.

Shim are you going to use the stand for gigs or is it for a studio setting?

I purchased a the following item from Staples for use in my home studio. I usually have a Music Pad Pro and a 15 inch laptop on the top tier, it works very well. This can easiy accomodate a 20 inch iMac or the newer 21.5 inch iMac.

One of my boards sits on the desktop area. The desktop is large enough to fit a G70, Pa2xPro, Tyros 2 or any PSR series board. It also has a slide out drawer for your computer keyboard if needed. I chose not to install the computer keyboard drawer.

Quiklok also makes a sit down version of that stand so you can put pedals underneath. QL 695, its very sturdy. Have been using it since the days I played bass pedals, two keyboards and a drum machine. Somehow I miss those days.

Thanks everyone.

Stephenm52:
I'm using it for a studio setting. Not live...

Btw thanks for the tip!
That stand looks like exactly what I need, except its a bit too expensive right now.

What I want to know is: will the second tier (of either a two tier stand; or just by purchasing "tier 2") become straight? Meaning does it bend?

Again, thanks everyone for your replies.

While i'm at it, does anyone know of a keyboard stand (perhaps even 2 tier) that can go lower then traditional stands?

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
