music keyboard stand suggestion

suggestion for a midi kb controller stand. something I can use on a conventional chair, not a kb throne; like desk height.
not too $$$, it's just to support a Korg K49, about 6lbs.
but sturdy enough that I learn on it without it ending up on the floor.

Proline PL700Z is what I use at my desk, but I need to support a Yamaha CP4 which weighs close to 40lbs. Probably overkill for what you want. The problem with most X type stands is getting the keyboard height right for a desk chair. The Proline does that. Seems like you could rig something up.

I like the K&M Omega but it might be more than you want to spend:

I am also a fan of the K & M Omega.
A bit of overkill for a 49 key controller, but it is incredibly well made and will hold most 49 to 88 key controllers.

K&M makes great stuff, no doubt. I use to have their mic stands. Beasts.
But a bit overkill for a <$100 midi kb at 6lbs.

That’s why I included the Gator. The reason I mentioned the K&M is that many people move up from 49 keys in time and if that might be something you would be interesting in doing, you’d already have an excellent stand. I don’t really play keys, I use a MIDI guitar for anything involved but I have an Oxygen 61 for any time I want to play simple Hammond or other keyboard parts.88 is overkill for me. 61 seemed just right.

If at some point in the future I tire of the 49, I'll give it and the stand to a buddy in the big town what repairs MI and is involved with his local under funded schools.
If money still has value, I'll move on up.

That gator is a fixed height. There are others that looks pretty alright in their line that are adjustable.

What is the width of that Gator when set at its lowest height? That will typically be where you’d need it for desk height. You might need to supplement with a board or something underneath it for your controller. In my experience, an x-stand is just narrow enough to hold 77 keys at that height.

My bad, I thought it was adjustable. Take a look through these at Amazon. There’s a few adjustables in the $60 range:

how the heck did I those?

I have the kb at about 27" now, no stand. Feels like desktop of 31" or so would be comfortable without a true throne. I'm not going that crazy .... yet.

I wonder if my knees might bang that one sitting on essentially, a dining chair. I'll have to do some trig.

Good question, it looks like the depth is 14.8”. I didn’t see anything in the comments that mentioned a problem but maybe you can measure out and see if you have anything around that might help you mock up the seating position. I wonder how well the holes are tapped and how well the screw downs fit.
