I'm looking for advice on portable music stands. MY brother is about 5'11" and I'm about 5'6".
there are the cheaper, thin metal, completely umbrella like folding ones, that are good in a pinch but dont hold a big book.

and there are on stage, metal shelf type ones. with a solid tripod stand. they are more bulky and expensive,
but wont tip over with a heavy book.

I have a K&M stand that's pretty stable and folds up well, but for the most part folding stands are pretty wimpy/unstable and only good for sheets of music or a slim book.

Just buy one of the $15 on Amazon or at Guitar Center.

i tried that, worked great until you stick a text on there.
