Extremely Poor and not usable for books
16.07.2016
Well, I am aware that this is the cheapest stand one can get on thomann. However, I did not expect it to be that bad. Before pros and cons, this is the most important issue I have:
*** This stand has different heights for its two selves. This means that a paper on the left side is slightly higher than a paper/sheet on the right side. Of course this leads to being impossible to use this stand for even the lightest books. Very bad construction.***

Pros:
+ Folds and becomes a very small size.
+ Super cheap

Cons:
+ Rubbers of the feet of the stand got removed and lost within 1 week.
+ Very unstable, bad quality construction.
+ Screw that decides the height of the second part of the stand broke after 2-3 months of use.

All in all, this is so cheap its really bad and I would not recommend this item to anyone, in any case, never.

Very basic quality
vries1, 03.06.2019
I ordered one for a fellow musician, who was looking specifically for a music stand "on a budget". The first stand we received had a manufacturing defect which prevented the stand from being folded out correctly. Thomann provided great customer service and immediately took care of the problem by sending a replacement. Thumbs up! The replacement stand is clearly better - didn't have the manufacturing issue - but it remains a very basic quality product. While the user is satisfied, I would personally prefer to pay more and get a more robust stand, for example one of the K&M stands.

The plastic coating at the bottom disappears. The height, stability is quite good. It's only that the plastic parts that connect the smaller and bigger pipe can sometimes get stuck dismantling the stand. However I simply used silicone used in cars to fasten the joints. Otherwise you don't want to tighten the nuts to hard as that too is sensitive. Nonetheless it's a good much cheaper competitor to K&M as it can also carry heavy books. It takes the mighty bright light clamp better than others stands as there is nothing at the top. The only downside is that it could still fall a little bit more backwards to take an iPad, but the stand clamps reduces the risk.

Breaking at the bottom
G.L. double bass, 01.06.2019
My two stand of this model survived about 5 gigs each before the plastic holding the legs at the bottom cracked. It still stands, but it's rather unreliable.

– I've seen about 25 more at the academy having the same problem. I've seen some crafty DIY repairs with wire that made them stick around for some time longer.

Compact and small, but soon to fail.

nice and very cheap!
31.10.2015
Got this as a gift and although I haven't used it yet, I did take it out of the bag and put it together (the instructions make for some amusing reading...). It went together easily; all the adjusters were nice and tight (no spinning or wobbling like my little old wire folding music stand); and although rather large for a folding stand, is MUCH more convenient and lightweight than my black metal Manhasset that I used to have to take to gigs (which filled up one entire side of my tiny car, with the seats folded down). Seems like it will be easier to mark music on than the Manhasset, which had those weird bumps across the top half. This is a solid surface once assembled. It even has two tiny swivel arms on the ledge to keep music from slipping off. Can't wait to *have* to use it! Love that it came with a storage bag with a strap for carrying.

Good for single rehearsal and practice
a__carvalho, 11.04.2018
This is a nice music stand for the price. At the beginning it was a little harder to mount it due to the trusses that had been mixed out, but I managed to do it. Would recommend it and buy it again. If you are looking for something to use on stage, however, go for more professional ones, as the stability of this one is not the best.

Goed voor wat je betaald
MOLLOW, 18.08.2018
Ik gebruik deze Startone Music Stand als drummer en percussionist. Het is een handig product en zeer goedkoop. Prijs kwaliteit niets op aan te merken! Wel zijn mijn duurdere standaarden beter, maar als het enkel dient om een blad op te zetten, is hij zeker bruikbaar en raad ik deze zeker aan! Hij is stabiel en makkelijk op te plooien.

Decent music stand.
24.02.2015
Every musician needs a music stand. This one does a good job for not much money. It's the ultimate, no frills stand, but as long as you don't abuse it, you'll be fine. For home use, this is ideal. Always remember to loosen the fasteners when you fold it up or down and it'll last for years. If you're a gigging muso and your gear gets thrown in the back of transit vans, then maybe you should pick a slightly more robust model, but for the occasional open mic/ jam this is perfect.

Construction is good, given the price point - nice and sturdy. It held my rather bulky Beatles compendium nicely in place with no complaints.

You get what you pay for
G9881, 06.03.2018
This is good for the price and it can be used for its intended purpose. It's certainly not the most stable of stands out there, but as I've already said, you get what you pay for (and I'd rather put more money towards a guitar, not a stand!).

Music stand
Joy R., 25.07.2014
I think you get what you pay for here - it's cheap and serves its purpose but very flimsy and unstable. The arms for holding music in place don't really work above one sheet of music and it doesn't go as tall as some other music stands I've used. Would only recommend if you can't afford a more robust stand.

A Fiddle that turns into a Chinese Puzzle.
07.11.2014
We bought a number of these: Startone Music Stands, which come in a choice of 3 colours, Red; Blue & Black. It's a bit of a fiddle when it comes to erecting, & folding it up. Just as you think you've got the hang of it, frustratingly it turns into a Chinese Puzzle again. You normally find that you get what you pay for & although it is quite well made for the money, it lets itself down in its practicality of use. It is light in weight & does fold down into a handy, portable size. It would be usefull if it came with a cover to pop it into when not in use, or on the move, but for the money you couldn't expect one. All-in-All, if you are able to leave it erected most of the time, then it's a good buy, but if you have to erect it & fold it down regularly & can afford to, then pay pay a bit more for a more user friendly, music stand.

"Rock On", Nineacre Woody.

Best friend of an orchestra member
Viuki, 04.03.2018
As it folds easily and is pretty small once folded, it's easy to handle and carry around.

It's perfect for orchestra rehearsal and performances !

The only thing is that if you want to extend it to its maximum height, it bends lightly and loses its balance a little bit.

But besides that, it's the perfect companion for any rehearsal ! And for that price, I would recommend it to any musician, really !

You'll probably have to replace this at some point
WillO, 05.05.2015
These aren't durable, I bought a much better stand (a Millenium-branded one) with my next order from Thomann, for only about two Euro more.

My general rule of thumb when buying from Thomann: Never buy the cheapest option, go up at least a rung or two, the quality tends to be significantly better. This goes for stands, cables, strings, drumsticks, instruments, pretty much anything.

Nice but light!!!
01.05.2015
I used it outside, and it was the wind i know, but you cannot ask for a music stand to be cheap and weatherproof! I managed to put some weight on the base so it doesnt fall with wind and other fixings so the sheets of paper dont fly away, but overall i am very pleased with its height and the sturdiness.

Fine at this price point
09.01.2015
This stand represents decent value at this price - having used it a while now, I think I would spend a little more next time as this stand is quite spindly, has no weight in it, and can be tricky to open up quickly (quite embarrassing if your audience are enjoying the head scratching moments while you try to unfold it). A packed lyric / song book makes the item top heavy and prone to topple, while the hand tightened screws to brace / lock the device into position dont take much to collapse. Despite rating each element as 'okay' Ive added one star overall, as its still good value for what I was prepared to pay at the time

Quality is normal but
GuitarPlayerFromMinsk, 31.05.2018
Quality is normal for this price but if you could spend more budget - just take another better stand. It has so many troubles so it would be used only for 3-4 months and that's it.

Compact and light, but very poor quality
Konstantinos A., 15.01.2016
This is intented for very light use of course, but the one I got had the nut of the height adjustment screw breaking loose after just a couple adjustments. Tried to use some glue to get the nut immobilized but with not much success. It's only usable now on the minimum height.
The only advantage is it can get very compact when you break it down, but you have to be very delicate when tightening the screws. In my opinion you're better off spending a bit more for something that will last longer.

Pretty crappy, but was really cheap?
Phil9926, 07.12.2014
For the money, it was a good purchase as it was all I needed. Get a different one if you're going to use it very regularly and need to adjust frequently

Angella, 08.12.2017
When I ordered this I was thinking a bit like you get what you pay for as it is a cheap price but once it arrived I was quite surprised as it is sturdier than I thought it would be. Good stand for the money. I would definitely recommend this music stand

Startone Slinky
Decy Campion, 10.06.2017
Good Stand. I like them.
Lightweight, stable, strong and fits on stage anywhere. Fine for home use and live. It would be good if it came with a soft case for added protection when gigging. I keep mine in an internal pocket inside my hardware case. I bought four of these for practice and performance. It can hold loads of notation. Fantastic value for money.

Good Stands for daily use

They are good stands for use on a daily basis. The packaging was good, and I received them in good time.
I can safely use here in Zambia, Africa.
