The Quad Pod design of the Ultimate Support AX-90B gives it more stability than the standard column-style keyboard stand. Its four legs provide increased tip resistance and improved center of gravity. The legs lock in place while you're playing for an immovable support, even with large 88-note keyboards. The addition of the 4th leg means that whether you play sitting or standing, it'll still stay in place. Not to be overlooked, the arms of the AX-90B keyboard stand are height, width, length, and angle adjustable with memory settings for easy setup.
When you're done playing, the AX-90B folds into a self-contained compact unit. It comes with a custom fit tote bag with pockets. Cable management is integrated into the face of the column and footcaps are compressed on and won't fall off. The stand also features a built-in accessory attachment that folds out of the top.
The Ultimate keyboard stand comes in a black pearl finish, and includes custom fit tote bag with pockets for accessories.

I've been using this stand for the past 3 months. It has a lot of visual appeal on stage. I own the RED color which took me 6 months to get. I love how it has a channel up the center of the stack that you can store all your chords in with these clever clips that hold the cables in place. I leave them in place when I pack up at the end of the night and when I take it out at the next gig I simply plug into my keyboards and I'm all set to go. It is very stable and arms extend wide enough so you can view the screen of the 1st tier keyboard comfortably. The case is very well made and makes moving the stand around easy. It is quite heavy, but if you use leverage and read the instruction manual on how to set the stand up correctly it's a breeze. I hear so many people complain about not having enough room for pedals; that's complete hogwash. I use two full size sustain pedals and they fit fine. In fact, you wont get creep by having your pedals walk away from you because the stand will stop the movement. Packing up and setting up are a breeze. I have had no problems with it as yet and I've done about 25 gigs already. This is A++++ in my book.
I bought this stand with the idea of gigging and live performance. I have the both, the Yamaha XS8 and the XF8. While the stand has held up with both of these heavy keyboards, the heavier the keyboard on the bottom is, the more the stand becomes unstable. Additionally, I fell in love with the idea of a mic boom adapter built into the stand (which was not available at the time of purchase, but promised as comming soon). Now, approximately six months later, Ultimate tells me in an e-mail: Thank you for using Ultimate Support products. Our goal is always to provide our customers with innovative, functional products. Unfortunately in the case of the AX-90MIC, we regret to inform you that this product will not be released into manufacturing. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. While we do not have a similar product available, we are happy to assist you in selecting an alternate stand-alone mic boom from our current product line. I will never again buy another of their produsts!
PROS: Beautiful & Well Constructed.CONS: No Mic Boom Adapter, Shake with a 88 Keyboard, No short arms option available.It is the most beautiful stand you can get. It looks superb on stage. But a 88 keyboard on the low tier shake more than on the old 48. Also the upper arms are too big for many keyboards, Should be a shorter option.I bought 2 of them on May 2010 and the mic adapter was supposed to be release on september. Now they say it'll be release on spring 2011 (they removed it last year from their page. I am using the stand with a mic stand aside. It looks bad and cluttered.It is a shame such an excellent company like Ultimate that designs and manufactures the best stands has this kind of problems.
What a great stand. Takes up very little room on the stage. Holds two large boards, with very little bounce. No issues with the legs getting in the way of the pedals. Great carrying bag that comes with is. I own several Ultimate support stands and they have never let me down. This is a heavy stand, and it looks cool.
I bought this stand to use with my Yamaha S90 and Korg M3, and it did not let me down. It is solid, easy to set up, looks cool, and you may ajust the position of your keyboard in many ways. It is a little bit bigger than it looks from pictures, so if you are doing a gig in a really small place, you might want to bring a smaller stand, but apart from that it is a good choice - especially if you would like to make an visual impression on stage.
