D.I.Y. Keyboard Stand

After much searching for an ‘official’ way of mounting a keyboard above another on a desk I eventually all but gave up. Fortunately Homebase came to the rescue with a couple of heavy-duty tool-shed hooks designed to carry a miscellany of materials. Mounting them on the wall resulted in a less-than-ideal slanted keyboard mount that essentially relies on the Juno-D resting against the wall. The MIDI cable is a little pushed for space but everything else is fine and the keyboard itself is quite secure. I think I only got away with this due to the Juno’s skimpy 5kg weight.

Anyway. This all leads back to the fact I couldn’t for love nor money find a desktop second-tier keyboard stand or even anything wall mountable. There looks to be a gap in the market here *hint hint* and the sooner it’s filled the better. Surely I’m not the only one with this sort of requirement?
