Sporting a unique look, the VS-88B is as versatile as it is visually striking. You can use it in a standing or sitting position, it's highly versatile (use it to hold DJ gear or mixers), and provides plenty of space at the base for all your keyboard pedals, if you need it. Best of all, when you're done performing, it folds up into a convenient 28.5" x 9.5" x 6" space.
Foot Pedal Clearance and Cable Management
The VS-88B provides a wide footprint for easy access to pedals. And, since you can use it in a standing or sitting position, Ultimate Support designed it to give you plenty of room to set up as many pedals as you wish - in whatever arrangement you desire. Plus, the it features two cable clips, one on each leg, so you can keep your cables from getting in the way of your performance.

Ultimate Support makes some stout stands, so it should be no surprise that the VS-88B (nice name, don't you think?) is a beast, but what you cannot see from the picture is just how beastly it is. At its fullest extension it is about 48 inches high, and just under 28 inches wide at the top. That is an excellent height for standing if you are 6 foot 4, but your Little Phatty or your R3 will fall right on the floor. It will hold an Axiom 61 without modification, and the VS-88B really shines when you set a Keystation Pro 88 on top. Even with the heavy, weighted keybed bearing down on it, this stand doesn't complain, and the angled struts leave plenty of room for your knees and pedals. At the Liliputian end of the VS-88B's range, the height is 28 inches and the width 19 inches, so your Little Phatty is safe, but you'll have to kneel. Setup is really easy, involving the manipulation of a few hinges (with pins to lock them), and then sliding the main stantion tubes to the desired height (with an integral peg on a hasp to secure those at one of thirteen positions). The VS-88B is not light, and it flops all around if you don't hold it with both hands when it is folded, but Ultimate is nice enough to give you a heavy-duty nylon bag with a pad on the shoulder strap to keep it in check while you transport or store it. Like most stands with a tubular upper deck these days, the VS-88B comes with three rubber non-slip sleeves, and a fourth with a cam shape to it for adjusting out any flatness issues under your keyboard. The wide struts which form the base also have large rubber caps on the ends to provide stability and traction. You might want to leave it set up in the garage for a few days after you get it, though, because all that rubber smells like smoked meat something fierce when it is brand new. Then again, bacon isn't the worst thing your studio space could smell like.
