Jaspers: Keyboard Rack or Keyboard Stand? GO!

I like my current stand (it's Standtastic) but it protrudes too far out from the wall and I'm looking for something to take up less space/depth. The Jaspers rack seems to be the least deep option but I'm not sure if the lack of angle would make it annoying to access/play the keyboards.

I have a standtastic, and agree it takes up too much floor space. Recently purchased a keyboard rack, and it is way less deep and I love it. I would replace the standtastic with it, but the rack actually uses more space in terms of width. Each of them actually works well in the part of the room I have them set up in.

If you want more space, mount struts into your wall studs and get the angled holders.

Thanks Kaz! Rack it is then. I've got enough space for the width. I just wanted more space in the middle of the room. Now to figure out how many & what size of the holders I need/want.

Also @ Ramos707 thanks for that suggestion. My buddy did that and it worked out great. In my room, the wall behind the synths has a big window so no wall mounting for me.

Jaspers rack or K and M spider pro - both are great depending on how many keys you have. I have both and the Jaspers is probably more versatile if you never move it. As stated above you can angle Jaspers how ever you like. The k and M really is quality even compared to the jaspers though.

I first bought the K&M Spider Pro, but found that took up too much space. It's a great stand though. I liked it, but I knew I wanted to be picky with my decision. Once I decided that comfort and space was more important than my money, potential frustration and regret, I went all the way with decking out a Jaspers stand. I went with the big 150cm 6 tier keyboard rack from Jaspers. I added on the side arm bars, which are really nice to have, in addition to more holders so I could place multiple items on once level. Highly recommend Jaspers Keyboard Rack because it has a small footprint, is very sturdy and the biggest selling point which is that it's modular. I love that fact that when I want to change the arrangement of my setup, I have total control over how I want to set it up. No more being the victim of having to set something up the typical way. The angled holders on the walls is another great option, but You can easily move the Jaspers stand around anytime you want. It's just very practical.

I've changed things from this old pic, but you can see it in this thread below when I first bought it:

Jaspers stands take up a lot of real estate when properly set up.
