Where can I get a table/stand for my racks?

    I recently added another rack to my rig for a total of two 6 space racks. It's kind of unnerving having both stacked on top of my cab, so I figured the best way to go was to put the racks next to the cab instead of on top. I don't want to have the racks sitting on the floor since it's hard to reach the controls and the chances of getting kicked or spilled on is increased. So I need a table or stand of some sort to lift the racks off the ground. Does anyone know of a good, sturdy, collapsable stand suitable for my application?

    Depending on the weight, you might be able to use a keyboard stand or an amp stand.
    Most amp stands are tilted.

    Look around for a restaurant that's closing, and try to grab a few of those stands they set next to your table when they bring your food. When I've got a real small gig and only need a 2x10, that's perfect for it. Holds by cab just find, so would probably hold your racks easily.

    With weight being an issue, I dont really know of anything collapsable that would do it.

    When I need somewhere to to put the mixing desk or racks, I just grab one of the venue's tables for a night.

    Here's what you want. I use them for exactly what you describe. Holds 300 pounds, adjustable height, adjustable width/depth. Just the right size for SKB or other racks.

    I was looking at some keyboard stands that were rated to hold ~130 lbs, which is enough. But they would be too big. Then I though of getting a keybaord bench and ripping the padding off the seat. Then I saw munji's post and was like, "WOWZERS!!" because not only is that exactly what I am looking for, but I was just looking at the Britney Spears pic thread in Off Topic.

    Proud to be of service. These things work bitchen. They also make a bigger one (WS-550), but it's too big for the racks. Our keyboardist uses one. He's got gizmos that enable him to attach a couple mic arms on it.

    the angled combo amp stands are great for this purpose. they make getting at things a lot easier.

    The only problem with those is I have two racks, so if I stack them I'm kind of worried about the top one sliding off. Besides, I already ordered the QuikLok that Munji posted.:)
