This new format is responsive, and so will work nicely on browsers of all sizes. Other improvements will be forthcoming shortly, including SSL for the entire site. A few notes that will help you with the new setup: Your username for logging in is now either your screen name, or your email address - either will work. Your old username will no longer work.

If you lose connection, or return at another time, simply to back to the conversation or thread, hit the Reply button, and your saved content will be there ready for editing. There is a link at the top right of every page labelled "Unread Content" which will show you in a nice timeline view new content. The site can send notifications to your browser, but this can be turned off. Have a look around and check out some of the new features. If you notice anything off, post in News, or PM Jeff or Glenn and we will look into it. Happy New Year from the Maestronet Team.

Does anybody know where to get a beautiful wood music stand?

6 posts in this topic

I saw the most beautiful music stand made of wood in a violin shop some time ago. Ever since then I keep feeling like such a stand would be inspiring to work with--and I could also leave it out as decorative furniture. (I hate packing everything back up every time I practice.)

Our house has a formal dining room--which we're currently using for other purposes. My dh would like it to be the dining room someday--but I have other plans....baby grand, wall-to-wall bookshelves, (I already have the books!), and my lovely music stand. The latter seems most affordable at the time! wink.gif Thanks!

I'm not completely sure what you have in mind, but I have seen recently in the Shar catalog a wooden music stand that is portable, and seems pretty beautiful to me - it rolls up. Interesting, if not beautiful, at least! And, I am thinking it was wood, too. It's the one I would get if I could afford it! You might want to take a look, anyway. smile.gif

Good luck in your search!

My music stand is the five section metal type because I play standing up. I can appreciate the nice look of the wooden stands though.

Thank you GrandMacDuff!!! I think Alden (which had a free catalog offer) is exactly what I was hoping for!!! Now I'll have to wait for the catalog to come--they didn't list prices. Thanks so much for taking the time to link!

I just happen to have a catalog handy! I asked my husband to make me a stand for my birthday and I got a catalog so he could get an idea of measurements. Progress on the stand hasn't started yet, but the stands run about $385 in the catalog. These aren't the most beautiful I've seen though. Just go to an internet search engine and type "wood music stands". That's how I found Alden Lee. I don't have the link but there is one guy that makes custom stands with music pattern cutouts on the "desk" part where you put your music. Those stands were truly lovely but I think they were about $500 and up.

I saw one that I really wanted but it was really expensive - by D'Estien, the one that rolls up.
