I recently acquired a Casio PX-130 and I am looking for a place to put it. I have a limited space but I also want something that looks good. i.e. no "X" stands

I am not too excited about the standard 3-piece factory stand:

http://www.buy.com/prod/casio-stand-for-px130-piano/q/loc/101/211497385.html

Not only it is rather pricey (only 3 pieces of wood!) but it is also single purpose. I am looking for something made of wood and not too deep (less than 20" edge to wall). Do you guys have a better suggestion?

Thanks for reading!

You may want to buy their stand if you plan on using the piano-style pedal attachments. They require the stand.

The problem is only to be finding something that is the correct hight. The didtance from the top of the white keys to the floor is always a standard. So you need a stand with an exact height that is very, very un-common in furniture stores.

You only good options are to either buy the casio stand or some other table that has adjustable height. Some high end (expensive) computer furniture have ways of adjusting the hight but very few of these are 60 inches wide an 18" deep.

If yu have a table saw you might be able to cut down something you buy at Ikea. saw the legs down to adjust the height.

In the end you may find it best just to buy the over-priced three boards from casio. Or find an adjustable "Z" stand of you dislike X stands

Another very low cost option: Put metal tracks used to suport adjustable shelves on the wall. Then you get those arms the fit into the tracks. This is something like the way they mount the displays to the walls in music stores

I'd recommend the Quik-Lok W550 or On-Stage Stands WS8550. They are probably the same stand and can be had for around $90 USD on-line. You'll be able to use it with any stage piano you own until you die (put it in your will for then next generation to use).

The Quik-Lok M-91 looks interesting for around $100 though I haven't ever even laid eyes on one.

'Z' is not much better than 'X'. smile

These are all valid points. It maybe hard to outfit the factory SP-32 if I use aftermarket table. This is the only thing that keeps the factory stand as an option for me.

Piano height is also an issue but I think it is more of a difference between chair? From what I understand, there is about 1" difference from piano to piano. Adjustable tables can be found quite easily but that would limit the storage capability (they are usually just a table top + legs).

Quik-Lok M-91 looks nice! But still a single purpose metal stand and costs as much as the factory one.

Then you probably wouldn't be interested in a 'V'!! smile

I will probably be forever searching for a proper surface on which to place my DP. I would like something that sort of gives me the feeling of sitting at an acoustic piano, especially when I'm composing or recording, but I'd like the ability of sliding my DP out of it when I need to take it with me. Sort of a Roland RG-type of case into which my DP can be popped in and out of. NICE.

It may seem to be an expensive wood-based thing, but can you buy something as good or better for less money? I doubt it, unless you have the inclination to build your own. (I don't have the skills for that.)

I think this type of stand serves much better than an X or a Z. In the end, you'll be happy with it. The recollection of the $100 spent will fade away. But the satisfaction will last.
