I also just purchase a K & M Stand, only I choose the Omega with the second tear. In fact will arrive next few days. ﻿18810(Stand)with the 18813 (Optional Second Tear). I also use pedals and need something with foot-switches room.
I bought a Spider pro w/ Mic attachment from Frankie and just love it,.. I use it on stage every gig,...super sturdy and very easy to set up,....best part vs the Apex there's space for your feet, pedals, etc....great KB Stand..
btw, I also have a like new Ultimate Support IQ-3000 KB stand for sale if anyone is interested..IMO the best X stand made.
The k&m BABY model is less high. So it's better for me who is playing sit down. However, it's still too much for me. I don't like to have something in front of me when playing for gigs. I will try to sit higher...
