I've been looking for a new double keyboard stand for a while and after reading some reviews I thought this would be exactly what I needed. Out of the box it seems sturdy and I liked that way everything folds neatly into the main column.
Then I put a Nord Electro 73 on it (not a particularly heavy board (and nowhere near the stated maximum 40k load!)). The result, even under light playing was extremely unstable. The whole keyboard rocked from side to side and when I put my Hammond XK1 on the lower tier that was a complete disaster. Totally unusable in any professional situation. Luckily I still had my old stand with me as the Adam Hall lasted about 30 seconds on stage before being put back in its box.
To add insult to injury it'll cost me half what I paid for it to send it back so I have a choice between returning it for a refund and being £40 out of pocket, or keeping a useless stand.
This stand is probably OK for very small (no more than 5 octave) keyboards that weigh very little, or if you're looking to make your keyboard playing look like a circus balancing act. Otherwise spend your cash in something else.
This is a tricky one. In my experience this stand has some strengths and weaknesses. Depending on what you want to use this for (and more importantly, WITH) this may or may not best the best solution for you.
This is what I've found (in comparison to the Ultimate Apex which I use and from which the SKS-22XB is clearly derived):
Strengths: Good build-quality Chunky, rugged base stabiliser Arms fold directly into the stand rather than being removed (as in the Apex) Relatively cheap (at about half the price of the Apex)
Weaknesses: No handle - therefore not easy to pick up with one hand The column itself is s little shorter than the Apex. (If you're 6' plus you might find the top tier not quite high enough) Less stable with longer/heavier keyboards.
I initially put my Yamaha S90ES and Motif XS7 on this stand - NOT good. Too much instability. Because there is no clamp (as on the Apex) when the lower board is against the column you can't see the display. yet pull it out a little and it loses stability. Instead I use my Apex for these boards and the Adam Hall holds my Korg Trinity and Korg CX-3. These are both lighter and shorter (61-keys) and the Adam hall stand works fine.
Verdict? Great for smaller boards and synths. Be wary of using this for longer & heavier stage pianos/workstations
