As a long time Rock Band aficionado, I'm used to the relative flimsiness of plastic instruments, so I knew from the time I picked up the box that this wasn't your average RB instrument bit. The box weighed a ton! Opening the box, I found heavy-duty, square tubular parts and pretty complete directions on how to assemble it. It's not hard to assemble, but unless you're ambidextrous like me, it may be helpful to find another person to assist when tightening down the screws. It's best to hold the wrench in one hand while tightening them with the allen wrench (tools are provided), rather than the other way around.
I admit that I anticipated the relative stability of an average music stand (read: not particularly stable) but was very pleasantly surprised at how stable this stand seems to be. It adjusts to several heights and I found both a standing height and a sitting height that work perfectly for me.
It may seem like a bit much to pay for a stand for a plastic guitar, but honestly, it's better than several music stands I've owned that I've paid a lot more for. If you find the "keytar" doesn't work for you but you want to play keyboards, it's a wise investment toward increasing your enjoyment of the game.
I put this together to have the support brace at the rear of the keyboard instead of the front as the default logo shows. I also attached the back mounting brace that slants with the plate of the piece to the rear, instead of over the horizontal brace. That gave me about a half inch more space towards the back.
I you had some DIY skills, you could probably adjust the top to fit the keyboard better, but as is, it's been working fine for me. If you're looking for a stand for your MicroKorg, for the price, you can't beat this.
The quality of the stand is top-notch; the frame is comprised of tubular metal and the rubber feet are textured and grooved for non-slip performance. The metal cradle utilizes thin strips of foam to support the keyboard gently and presumably to prevent scratching on the bottom of the keyboard. The vertical portion of the stand is braced on a T-frame and seems quite sturdy; there is no danger of buckling in the frame that I could discern.
The stand itself is adjustable with a push-button / slide assembly. This is a little hard to slide, but I don't plan on moving it much once I've set it to a height that's comfortable. Heights appear to range from something that would make it easy for a 6-year old to operate the keyboard to a height that would be comfortable for someone who is about 6' tall to operate the keyboard.
I'm actually tempted to rig this as a steering wheel platform at its lowest height with the use of a 2 x 4. I'll report on this later as well.
Overall, it appears to be a perfect accessory for the RB3 keyboard. I will update my review once I receive it and perform a mock test by tickling the keys a bit. Stay tuned.
** EDIT Received keyboard on 10 / 8 / 2010 **
I received the keyboard and put it on the stand. Played with the keys and simulated some of the warble game play on the keyboard itself. The stand is pretty sturdy, even with aggrssive side-to-side movements. The game won't be delivered until 10 / 26 / 2010, but I still give the stand 5 stars!Read more ›
The stand made from metal parts with some plastic stoppers at the corners. The kit includes all the screws, washers, and nuts as well as a little wrench that you will need to assemble. The assembly instructions are poor (there is only one picture), but the assembly is still easy enough and the parts really ony fit together one way. I think it took about 10 minutes to assemble.
The keyboard stand fixes problems of stability and allows you to comfortably place your hands on the keyboard. The foot of the stand is wide enough to be stable on carpet even when you are seriously jamming. Once assembled, the keyboard fits well and does not wiggle much. It creates an infinitely more stable platform when compared to a lap or a coffee table. The keyboard stand also has a button with holes to adjust the height. At full extension, you can play the keyboard while standing. The stand also collapses low enough to allow the keyboard to played on a couch.
This is a five-star product. If you have Rock band 3 or plan to get it: you should consider getting this stand if you are also getting the Rock band 3 keyboard.
