This plastic desktop music stand from Percussion Plus is a useful lightweight accessory for musicians of any age. It is made from Correx corrugated plastic which is remarkably sturdy when fitted together, and has a lip large enough for big anthologies. The whole shelf folds down easily to fit into most rucksacks, and weighs just 118g!
Although it can't compare with a metal stand where longevity is concerned it is a brilliant tool for GCSE or A Level study time or for younger children practising recorder or ukulele at home. It can of course be used by non-musicians too e.g. to prop up a recipe book, magazine, or tablet.
