I want to be able to play the CP too. Not just use it as a module. I have a km1880 stand with the 1881 second tier but the Reface is way to small to fit on the 2nd tier arms.

At the risk of offering an obvious solution that you've already rejected, have you considered just using a shelf with your current stand?

Try a narrower setup on your stand. I run my 18880 at 18Ē wide (no crossbar) with my NS3-88 HA and itís very solid. Same when I add the second tier for my Juno-DS61.

I don't have to use the crossbar?

I have the 18880-18881 combination. Not using the crossbar at all makes it a tiny bit wobbly, although I never had a collapse; but you CAN drill extra intermediate points in the crossbar, and fasten it down with a narrower overall setting.

When I use the 18880 by itself, I usually don't use the crossbar. Since I now have an iRig Pro 37 key controller, it definitely needs to be narrowed up for that.

Do you have a pic you can post with the irig on top?

No, the crossbar isnít mandatory. From my research before buying, it appears that many people donít use it. I never had one. Setting up narrower lessens any side-to-side sway.

If helpful, hereís a link to the review I posted this morning on the Nord forum about using the 18880 at last nightís gig:

I went with the shelf idea. And narrowed the stand

glad you got it worked out. thu


A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.

I cut what I needed off from my crossbar to the desired length and duplicated the slot. Round off the edges then touch up with a little black paint, works great - solid as a rock
