Need Casio CS-43 stand for Casio CDP-100 keyboard
« on: October 17, 2020, 05:06:29 PM »
I want to play my son's Casio CDP-100 keyboard that he used in high school. It never had a stand.  The stand designed for it is the Casio CS-43, which seems to be out of stock everywhere online. Does anyone know where I can find or look for a used one?

musicianís friend sells a Casio a CDP  s100 digital.  They may know if the S100 and the 100 have the same dimensions and could therefore use the same stand

Give them a call

If looks are not important, you could just use a generic X-frame stand.

The x-frame stand is a good idea if you plan on upgrading the keyboard, as you can continue to use the stand with a new keyboard. 

If you are handy you could take an old piece of furniture and turn it into a keyboard stand.  Many keyboard stands are known to be wobbly, it is the compromise for being collapsible and portable.  You could make the design fit right in with your home, it just won't be very portable.

Eh, the X-stands with the doubled parallel pieces that form the frame are pretty stable, and there's just about enough space for an average pedal setup.  The ones with just single pieces of metal forming the "X" are kind of flimsy, IME, but adequate, I suppose.  I wouldn't know if any one brand is significantly better than any other.

There are table-top style stands (four legs), and my favorite is the QuikLok WS550.  It's extremely stable, and has held about two hundred pounds of keyboards (a Rhodes piano and a Hammond clone) for years.  It collapses pretty nicely for portability, but it is comparatively heavy to move around.

I use a double X stand for an 88 key digital piano at home and it's fine:  doesn't wobble around much, if any.  The worst that could be said is it doesn't look very professional, and you could run out of space underneath if you decided to use effects pedals.

Regarding the x-stands.  It probably also depends on what you play, so it may not be too much of an issue for some people.  For beginner repertoire, it probably won't bee too much of an issue.  For playing advanced classical rep, it might be different. 

I've had to play music theatre gigs with x-stands.  Found them a bit too wobbly for my taste.
