World Tour SXKS Single X Keyboard Stand
Gearank High Notes
The World Tour SXKS is a basic stand suited to those on a budget, following conventional designs while keeping the price accessible.
It can accommodate keyboards from 49 to 88 keys and the range of height adjustment allows most people to play either sitting or standing.
One issue with X style stands like this is that the cross bars can get in the way of your knees if you're tall and prefer to play sitting down.
Note that there is a double braced version of this stand that can accommodate keyboards nearly twice as heavy as this one can handle - the World Tour DXKS.

- Height: Adjustable from 25.25" to 38.75"

- Weight: 6.3 lb
It received many positive reviews from people who just wanted something for home or studio use, or for their children who were learning keyboards. It was regarded as being reasonably well constructed for its low price by many reviewers.
Some people pointed out that many 49-key keyboards are not wide enough to use with this stand in the sitting position. There were many people who complained that the assembly instructions were not very good. Some experienced musicians who reviewed it said it was not suitable for gigging. Some people reported it was wobbly even though some said it was stable - it may be that there are variations in quality which can happen with low-cost products like this.
If you only need something for light duties and want to save a few dollars, then this is worth looking at.
