DIY Music Stand for NS - Anyone else?

Postby Phun Tunes » 10 Jan 2019, 20:15

I made my own music stand some time back. It has worked alright. I made it in a bit of a rush at the time in ten minutes using scrap wood & what was handy in my garage. Just wondering what others do or have built as maybe could make something better. I did not buy the Nord stand not because of the price but after seeing someone else with one, I did not like the height especially when using my tablet and did not need something so wide. Also when using in my bedroom (as in the pics) the Nord stand would block my speakers. Would appreciate if others that made one could post theirs. Thanks!

You might find someone in your local area that is capable of welding a stand that meets your specifications. Or, you can purchase one that’s commercially available.

IS THERE A MUSIC RACK OPTION FOR THE NORD STAGE 3 COMPACT?

Thank You, I can weld but I am looking for ideas or samples of what people have already done.

Do you know of another commercially available available music stand other than the Nord one which as I explained in my post above will not work for me.

I feel bad for those of you that do not have the music stand mounts but I would think you could use two of the screws on the back. I' will attach some quick pics. Circle the screws I am talking about.
You might have to get slightly longer screws. But take the screws out, and insert an "L" bracket, use rubber in between to protect the keyboard finish. On my NS 3 88 key the screws are the same width as the Nord music stand mounts. So you should be able to use that one. Or build one (even as poor as mine) which could mount just as easy in an L bracket as the Nord mount points. The only thing I would do is make sure to have a horizontal support bar or two as there would only be one screw holding the "L" bracket which would want to otherwise turn. Would think as long as you do not make a stand overly heavy (I think mine weighs less than two pounds) those screws could support it.
Just my opinion. YMMV :wave:

OK. in my 2nd pic, the yellow would be the "L" brackets mounted to the screw circled in the 1st pic. The green is the frame or music stand itself.
