Just wondering what stands everyone is using with their Montage...?

The old Yamaha LG-800 is Yamaha's choice.

Yes, I use this same stand that you are showing that came with my CP1 for my Montage 8. I use the "On Stage" heavy duty stand turned around backwards hanging over the Montage. I can then slide the Montage out and back again without them being connected together like on a 2 tier configuration using a single stand. You can see this arrangement under the topic of "Let's see your setup" on the last posted photo. That stand is really convenient and well built and of course adjustable. Best of all there are no obstructions near your pedals and/or knees.

Currently using an Ultimate Support AX-48 with an extra tier to hold my Jupiter-80, Montage 6 and laptop.

A bit frustrated by the inability to angle the tiers though. And the central column makes placing my pedal board awkward.

Considering a K&M Spider Pro with the laptop adapter as a replacement if I can find one cheap enough!

Montage7 with single "X" stand at the gig/practice ("on the road";) to keep the weight down of what I carry and a dual "X" in the studio.

I only have one tier - other keyboards I put on their own single-brace "X" stand.

Since stand configurations serve different purposes (number of keyboards, budget, stability, aesthetics, portability, height options, etc) - you'll get a wide range of responses which meet those various goals.

I am trying to find a "nicer" furniture-type one for the studio setting that holds the Montage at the correct height along with the computer, monitor, speakers...

Something like this - but not at the same price as the Montage ($4,000) - like this one costs.

Hello G - that is a really nice set-up! Attention to detail and presentation much in evidence. Custom-made obviously. Did you make it yourself? If so, your 'ebeniste' skills match your musical ones!

I'm at the other end of the scale. I never got on with the purpose made steel frame stands - they nearly all wobble, with no room for anything other than the keyboard - so for the Montage I employ an old, much modified but very solid kitchen table that has space for a ton of other stuff, and for the Korg and Tyros I made very solid wooden stands that will not move a millimetre. They may be solid, but they ain't pretty! But none of it is intended for public view, and is buried in a tiny room at the far end of the workshop ... well, that's my excuse ...

Hello again G - sorry! Completely missed your second paragraph! Still a very handsome aiming point if your set-up is on public view, as yours would be to private audiences. There are some very nice 'self-assembly' veneered MDF kits about - heavy and solid - that may lend themselves to what you have in mind ...

Gibraltar stands look interesting you can purchase ready made kits or construct you own configuration yourself, I'm looking in to Gibraltar stands my self, You Tube covers this topic with Gibraltar keyboard stand, Ed Diaz 3 tiered custom stand stands out as you can move and angle the keyboards to just the right spot which is important to me... hope it helps

Hi Rod,

That's actually a CAD remdering, not real...

I'm using the K&M Omega stand. Incredibly stable, and room underneath it for my legs and feet, unlike an X stand. Also, there are plenty of accessories for attaching other things like tablets and microphones.

Im using this live.. I actually just ordered a 2nd one for the studio. I have the Nord Electro 4HP on the bottom and the Montage 6 on the top.
Easily to collapse with one button in the middle of the Xbrace.

It seriously depends on what you're using the stand for. If you are standing up on stage then the braces and obstructions underneath might not matter unless they make you trip. However if you're sitting and programming and recording you DO NOT want anything to obstruct your knees and feet. I thought outside of the box for my studio and used the Yamaha LG-800 for the M8 and then came over the top using an On Stage stand turned backwards. I can independently pull-out the M8 when working with the M8 touch screen and then slide it back under the top tier CP1. I can also have about 9 pedals on the floor with no issues. I'll post a photo of the stand arrangement when I get home.

Another vote for the K&M Omega which I have for my Motif. It is a seriously sturdy stand.
