An extra tall version of the classic Manhasset Symphony stand ideal for use by standing musicians such as double bassists and groups that perform on risers or elevated platforms. The specifications are identical to the standard Symphony stand except that the minimum and maximum extension of the shaft are 30cm (12in) higher. Each stand is extremely robust and built to such a high quality that the manufacturers offer a lifetime guarantee with any purchase. You should never have to buy another stand. The main feature of all Manhasset stands is that they are 'knob free’. Thanks to the famous ‘magic finger’ shaft clutch and ‘friction tilt’ neck joint, the stand can be pushed or pulled into any position and will remain secure without turning a single screw. Not only does the lack of adjusters make it simpler to use, but the overall design also looks much more sleek and classy. All of the Manhasset 48 stands can hold 4kg of music and have a desk depth of 2.25" (5.7cm) making them capable of holding heavy choir books and large music anthologies. The desks are made from solid aluminium for optimum rigidity and the all-steel welded bases allow for extra stability. While these stands are designed to live in one space and are therefore not entirely foldable, they are surprisingly lightweight (4.5kg) and easy to carry around if necessary.
