Anyone know of a studio rack that has a synth stand on the top of it?

Hey guys, I'm trying to keep my home studio with the smallest footprint possible, right now all I have is a desk that has a place for one of my synths, and 2 shelves that I put my monitors on.

I'm going to start buying rack gear, but the problem is I have a smallish monosynth (SH-2). It's weird putting it on a single stand as it has to be really tall and wobbly.

Anyone know of a studio rack for mounting rack gear, that also has a little stand on the top of it so I can rest the SH-2 on it?

All I can find is Long & McQuade - Apex Electronics 10 Space Tilt Top Rolling Studio Rack
But it looks kind of cheap, be nice to find one with a closed enclosure

Thanks

Sure, look for the Konig & Meyer 28200 rack wagon.

I have one in use, it's excellent. Good quality, a nice amount of (slightly tilted) rackspace and it comes with two (padded) doohickeys which you can bolt to the topside effectively turning it into a synth stand for a small device.
Mine currently has a Moog Source on top, earlier on it was in use as the ideal place for my Vermona DRM-1 mk3 drumsynth.

BTW you can add some optional sideplates to it, probably making it nicer to look at. Personally, I never bothered with them.

Why not just get a simple wooden rack enclosure like the ones from Raxxess or Middle Atlantic and put the synth on top of the rack? It works for me.

Hi Jordan, I have on of these metal racks (I do have the 16 U):

Millenium SR-2012 Studiorack

with one of those on top :

K&M 18813

On the rack I didn't install the top plate, I replaced it with a wooden panel the size of one of my keyboards, and I put another one on top

Quiklok stands offer 3 rack mount module attachments.

Might be nice with one of the Z stands or the workstations. I might try one out in my next move.

Sorry read that OP wrong, thought you wanted to put rack mount gear on a keyboard stand.
