Hi,

Has anyone bought the so called "New" Improved Extended Music Rack? I received a brochure quite sometime ago. It looks quite nice and has a quality look that would certainly make the KNs look good. It fits the KN5000 - KN7000. It is advertised as "longer and taller." (36" wide and 10" high) It is also supposed to be stronger, which is a good thing. Anyway, I would like to hear from those that have it.

hi KN
Yes ,I bought the extended music rest for my Kn7000 and it very good. It enables you put several pieces of music on the stand and gives a much better look to the KN.
To fit it you have to take the original base off the wire support and then the new extended one slots over the top.
Regards
Peter B.

It looks smart. It is black opaque in colour. It is almost as wide as the keyboard. It is about as deep as a Busker type book,i.e.just shorter than A4. There were several pictures in the techplus magazines. I'll try and scan one for you or maybe if my technology will allow I will try and send you a photograph of it as it is on my KN7.
Personally I think it is very good, but there again, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Regards

Hi Peter,

Thanks for explaining how it fits. So, as I understand it, you actually use the original wire and the new unit goes over it. According to what is in print, it is supposed to be stronger. I don't see how if you are using the original wire frame. As we all know, that isn't too stable. I have always been afraid when doing a gig that someone is going to come up and lean on it and it breaks out of the keyboard - God forbid. The way the wire sticks in the holes of the keyboard, it looks like there could be major damage done to the case if that happened. I was hoping this updated rack would keep this from happening.

Jack, I only have a poor sketch of it. Since Peter has one, perhaps he has a better image and can scan it and send it to you in your email.

Hi All,

I too have this new music stand. It is made of some sort of plastic or for the older generation, something similar to perspex. I haven't taken my original grey stand off the support as it will slot onto the wires at the back o.k. without doing this. In fact if you leave the original stand intact, I think it gives added support. The thing I like about it most is although it is a shade of dark brown (similar to sunglasses) you can actually see through it which I find helpful when playing for dancing as I usually pick a couple to watch and when they've been around the hall three or four times, I bring the dance to a close. (A tip given to me by another musician).

The price in England is about 39.00 plus despatch costs.

If you are intereted, order immediately as the last I heard Technote were almost out of them and are unable to get anymore.

Thanks, Audrey

Technote America has a price of $49.99 which is roughly 28GBP. They state, "Made of high quality smoked plexiglas." Due to the price difference, I had better step on it, if indeed, they still have them.

Hi everyone,

I just ordered the music rack. It no longer is $49.99 in the US and is now $59.99. I was told that they have only 4 more and they won't be reordered. If anyone is interested, you better get one before they are no longer available.
