Classy, solid, practical
Jay / Hamburg, 12.05.2020
I have a small project/home studio in a basement and I used a large Ikea-type office desk to hold all equipment. Pretty messy, utilitarian - and ergonomically not ideal.

After a solid month of consideration, research, calculations and measuring I decided to invest in a purpose built studio desk. Not an easy one as there are a lot of choices to be made.

I chose the BEAT Limited Ed in black for its compact dimensions, functionality and looks.

Delivery
Top notch service from Thomann: The desk arrived only a few days later and I could schedule a delivery appointment with the trucking company online - no problems.

WATCH OUT: The 5 furniture cartons came packed in one huge wooden crate weighing 120 kgs at W 210 cm x L 110 cm x H 35 cm. If you live in an apartment complex this is worth considering. The crate was easy to open and the individual cartons can be handled by two people. The disposal of this crate is your problem.

Assembly
This took me about 2 solid hours following the video instructions, nothing complicated.

Pros
1 First class MDF quality - heavy duty
2 Mechanically solid and well designed
3 Pleasant shapes and nice angles
4 Enough leg room underneath keyboard drawer - I am 182 cm
5 Ample stowage room for cables
6 Push in main desk board runs on proper metal ball bearings
7 Excellent ergonomics - everything is within reach
8 Nothing wobbles, nothing moves, this thing is heavy and solid

Cons
1 Two wooden dowels were missing - at this price point annoying but easily and cheaply bought replacements at a local DIY (chose the 10 mm diameter ones)
2 The legs with lacquered high-gloss piano finish have some dull, tarnished spots on the edges and little scratches. Not visible from further away, but I sit at it daily and see them.
3 Maximum keyboard width about 100 cm

Conclusions (after 5 days)
It is a very, very pleasant place to sit at, to touch, to work at and to look at. It is inviting and it's fun to create music with. Surprisingly, in person this American design does not look at all over-the-top or braggy. Just solid and professional. It is not cheap, but appropriate value for money.

Highly recommended.

The desk arrived in time in a perfect and carefully packed crate.
My son put it all together and looks totally professional. The piano finishing it's beautiful. It's a very big desk with enough space to put all the electronics and keyboard he needs. I would highly recommended if you are looking to set up a studio at home or elsewhere. Hope this helps!!
