V-Stand

Keyboard Stand

Q.Are there any cautions that I should take when using the V-Stand? Are there any Roland keyboards or synthesizers that I should be particularly careful with when using them with the V-Stand?

A.

The V-Stand is designed as a general-purpose keyboard stand that can accommodate most any model of keyboard. Its sturdy construction is built to support a weight of up to 113.4 kg.
However, since it does not have any mechanism that fastens the keyboard to the stand itself, please be aware of the following points when using the V-Stand.

Cautions for performance:

When it’s placed on the V-Stand, do not play the keyboard in an extremely aggressive manner, such as shaking the keyboard and V-Stand combination left and right or making the V-Stand's legs lose contact with the floor. If you do so, the keyboard may slip off the V-Stand, or both the keyboard and V-Stand may fall over, causing damage and/or injury.

Cautions for particular keyboard models:

We have noted the following cautions that should be observed when using the V-Stand with the following Roland keyboard models (as of June 2005).

Model nameCaution
VK-8 The bottom of the keyboard will slide easily.
The keyboard may fall off the V-Stand if you use aggressive organ performance techniques (e.g., glissando).
VR-760 The keyboard may fall off the V-Stand if you use aggressive organ performance techniques (e.g., glissando).
FP-2 The bottom of the keyboard will slide easily.
Due to the keyboard’s light-weight, it may fall off the V-Stand when played with only moderate force.

Even when using other Roland keyboards -- or keyboards from other manufacturers -- a keyboard placed on the V-Stand may fall off during use due to a certain playing technique or other condition, potentially causing damage or injury.

Before using the V-Stand for performance, make sure that your keyboard is placed on the V-Stand in a manner so that it won’t slip off.
