We are so so excited about this.
Some of you might not know this but in a house of prayer setting, there are many worship leaders with many different heights which equals many different settings on the keyboard stand. So maybe once or twice a day we were having to change the keyboard stand height. It’s a pretty precarious situation as the keyboard we have is 70 lbs and with our old stand it took 3 people to change the height and we can’t afford to drop that keyboard! Plus the fact that we will only continue to grow prayer room hours and piano players on a daily basis and want our players to be able to change positions during a 1-2 hour set.
So we were looking into hydraulic lifts that are made specifically for keyboards. They cost a pretty penny so we looked for better options and found this adjustable desk online and researched it’s potential for our keyboard lift. Well it turns out that the company had never sold a desk lift as a piano lift, so they gave us a great deal and asked us to test it for them and give them feedback. Maybe we can bring this piano lift to the worship world:)
It raises up quietly and fairly quickly, tells you how many inches off the ground it is at every moment, and has 4 memory pads that you can program heights on in order to make transitions easier. It has very stable and sturdy in every position and you can even adjust the width of the desk base. We have the width at its skinniest dimension but it can get pretty wide.
Our next step is to find a way to attach the microphone and music stand to the piano lift so that they lift when the piano lifts. Look forward to the final piano product and feedback pics/videos. If you know of somebody who would be interested in buying a desk lift like this for a piano contact us and we can send you the info.
