Nice stand for the price

I think this is a nice stand and it does what's it's supposed to do. I do, however, feel that the rest for the sheet music is a bit soft and gets deformed easily if you put preassure on it or bump into something. This is easy to bend back, but I'm not sure I think you should have to.

Other stands I have experience of is definately more sturdy, so I guess that, to some extent, this is a case where you get what you pay for. Good enough for home use, but not if you take it to a lot of gigs.
