This stand is a great value for the price. I am in a cover band called party machine. I was always having to give up one of my tiers on my keyboard stand to hold my laptop not to mention that I had to put a plank of wood across the tier. I purchased a Proline conductor stand. It works great for supporting my laptop and my mbox audio card at just the right angle. This just goes to show that this music stand is built strong enough to hold more than just sheet music. I would recommend this product to anyone in need of a sheet music stand or laptop stand for stage use!

I just returned from the store with a ProLine Conductor music stand. At the store I was impressed with a designed that promised to be rugged. Unfortunately, right out of the box I set it up and one of the cam locks failed - split away from stand completely I am returning to the store now, but I was expecting a quality product from which I would get years of service. I would have paid $20 more to have the critical elements made of milled aluminum instead of plastic.

I've been playing more and more in a band setting where we have rehearsals out in a remodeled barn on my property. I have been using one of the lightweight ~$10 stands that I also got through GC. The lightweight stand worked well in the house but in the barn a more robust stand was needed, the Proline fit the bill in from that aspect. The legs, and backboard are solid with little chance of toppling over from a light breeze The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was, like was mentioned in some of the other reviews, the locking pins are plastic and feel weak. In all fairness, all of mine are working fine but I try not to use them anymore than is necessary and certainly don't yard down on them with a lot of force. Under normal working conditions I'm confident this will meet all my needs and aside from the locking pins you couldn't ask for a sturdier stand.
After quickly assembling the product, it was apparent that the second height lock was defective. The stand would collapse with only ounces of pressure or weight (it wouldn't hold the weight of a 1/2" binder with approx. 50 sheets of paper). I returned the stand to the store for exchange and asked to open another box before I decided to approve the exchange, it also had a defective slide lock. I have had many friends have no trouble with this product so I don't know if I experienced a bad batch but, it doesn't matter, it shouldn't happen. I ended up upgrading to the 'Orchestra Music Stand' for $18.00 more ($46.00 or so). I am very pleased with the construction and quality of the stand. It is definitely more in the professional or commercial grade quality and I am sure it will last for years. It is just a disappointment that the conductors stand doesn't have more rigorous quality control - it could be and, sometimes is, a quality product.
We've used this stand for over 150 gigs and it's still going strong! Not bad for $39.99!
I bought this stand for use with my Yamaha P-155B Digital Piano. It has multiple adjustments, and the tri-pod feet make it easy to adjust to your performance set-up. It has a very sturdy feel, and I think it is a good choice.
I bought this today at our local G/C in Oxnard, CA. No one has said but the top of the stand can also be used by placing it on a table top and by using the connecting arm behind to set the angle of the stand on the table. How cool, now I don't have to purchase a tabletop stand separately. Found out that this Proline stand's parent company is located in locally. For those of you who have had parts break, the warranty is 5 years from date of purchase from the original owner and a sales receipt is helpful for service. The young man at G/C told me to bring it back with a receipt for warranty replacement.
I was initially impressed with the quality of this stand. It appeared very heavy duty and was just what I was looking for. However, the friction lever bolts are in a cheap plastic housing. As soon as I tried to lock the stand in position, the housing snapped and the lever broke free rendering the whole stand completely useless. I am absolutely clueless as to why such an otherwise quality stand would have this cheap plastic housing on such an important part. I would have paid the extra few bucks for metal.
Just bought this stand because I was tired of fighting the flimsy little music stand I currently have. Took it out of the box, put the pieces together, and two of the three levers on it broke, now the top spins around and the legs like to spread far apart. If you buy in-store, keep that receipt, you are gonna need it.
This is absolutely the best music stand I have ever owned. I also own two of those flimsy stands and I can't tell you how many times I've had them flip over after having put a music book on them. This is even more of an issue when you are playing outside and a good wind kicks up. This ProLine stand beats them all. The only thing that would improve it is if it had the little shelf underneath that can hold a pen, picks, slides, metronomes, etc. For those of you who have asked for something to hold the pages down. I've had the same problem and I solved the issue by attaching large binder clips to either side of the stand. Not only can I clip the side of a book down with the binder clips, but I have also used the wire grips as extensions to support additional pages.
I've had this stand for a couple on months now. I play about twice a week as a weekend warrior. The plastic cam had broken off one of the extensions. I'm sure it was hit when I placed something near it in the truck. I'm disappointed in this aspect of the construction. It renders an otherwise well made stand, useless. I'm going to try to get a replacement part.
You can't get more adjustable and heavy duty than this stand. This one's great for keeping around the house to practice while sitting or standing. I absolutely love it! This stand is definitely not light weight for carrying around, but it's fine for collapsing and throwing into your trunk. I bought one for my dad and he loved it too! I've used those flimsy silver stands and this stand absolutely blows them away.
