Keyboard Stands

Choosing a Keyboard Stand

A vital part of the keyboard is the piece that does not produce any music at all. Keyboard stands are responsible for making sure that the musician can play in comfort and that the instrument is secure in a certain position. The type of keyboard stand that you choose will be determined by a number of factors.

The type of keyboard you use

High-end keyboards can be quite heavy, but many keyboards remain light and portable. A heavier keyboard, of course, will require a sturdier stand both to keep it in place and to prevent it from collapsing under the weight. Some styles of keyboard, such as digital pianos, include their own stand that gels with the rest of the instrument so that the appearance of a traditional piano is impressed upon the audience.

If you mainly use the keyboard to fool around at home, then a simple collapsible model may be the best for you. These stands are pretty inexpensive, and will get the job done when it comes to holding the keyboard level. Finding pianos for sale is easy at pianomusician.com.

How you play

If you are an informal keyboard player, then you may want to choose a stand that does not so much reflect the discipline of the piano. Serious players, however, may want to choose a stand that reflects the studious practice of the craft by lending a more solid appearance to the keyboard structure.

Keyboard players who specialize in performances, such as rock and roll, may want to consider stands that are sturdier in design. A lot of heavy playing of the keys usually results from a good performance, and the stand should be designed to absorb the impact of the hands.

Where you play

A lot of keyboard players need to have their keyboards with them for the performance; their keyboards are programmed with the range of sounds they will need for the performance, and therefore they cannot substitute for a venue keyboard. These players will need to find a stand that is as portable as possible while still lending a sturdy base for the instrument.

Keyboards which are intended to remain in place will not need a stand that can be moved around as easily. These stands can even include effects devices such as pedals, as they are not really expected to be detached from the keyboard very often, if at all.

Ergonomics

More and more musicians are becoming aware of the potential hazards posed by repetitive motion injury. Keyboardists can avoid this type of injury by selecting a keyboard stand that is adjusted to their height and arm length, or their position while sitting. This is pretty vital for anyone who plays their instrument often, as one of theses injuries may mean that you will be forced to quit playing.

Keyboard players who play multiple instruments at the same time also usually include several stand heights while performing, in order to differentiate quickly between which keyboard is to be used at the current moment in the song. Practicing the routine will allow you to automatically switch to the right keyboard based on height alone.

Keyboard stands are as vital to performance as keyboard cases are to properly maintaining and transporting your instrument.
