The »SPIDER PRO« keyboard stand is one of our most popular products. This article contains an overview all the key information on the »SPIDER PRO« and the »BABY SPIDER PRO« and the extra accessories available.

Starting with the »SPIDER PRO« available in anodized aluminum (18860-000-30), black anodized 18860-000-35) and red (18860-000-36).
The »SPIDER PRO« is equipped with two pairs of freely extendable support arms (the upper pair is tilted at 15°).

It can be outfitted with a third pair of support arms (article 18866 (#6) or 18865 (#7)) for a third keyboard. The »SPIDER PRO« also has a 3/8″ or 5/8″ threaded connection on the upper end of the column for attaching a microphone boom or laptop rest. The column of the »SPIDER PRO« is tilted at a significant angle for easier playing and a better view of the lower keyboard. The collapsible construction of the feet offers plenty of space for pedals and optimal leg freedom.

The »SPIDER PRO« folds easily and compactly. The optional carrying case (article 18851) protects the stand and makes it easier to transport.


The »BABY SPIDER PRO« has one pair of extendable support arms, a 3/8” or 5/8” threaded connector for attaching microphone booms and a cable clamp for cable management. It also comes in aluminum anodized (article 18840-000-30) and in black anodized (article 18840-000-35). The »BABY SPIDER PRO« can be outfitted with an additional pair of support arms for a second keyboard. Carrying case 18846 is available separately for easy transport.


#1: Microphone boom
Can be used with all models with 3/8” threaded connection such as the 211/1, a classic tow-piece telescopic boom arm that can be silently adjusted and tilted.

#2: Laptop rest for »Spider Pro« and »Baby Spider Pro« (model number: 18863)
The robust attachment holds your laptop securely. The laptop rest is mounted on the upper end of the keyboard stand by means of a wing nut and retaining plate. The aluminum shelf can be adjusted horizontally or inclined in three positions. Individually adjustable stop pins with rubber caps enable the use of all common laptop models, mixers, etc.

#3: Universal holder for »Spider Pro« (model number: 18873)
Thanks to the unique bracket with the quick clamp system the universal holder can be easily attached to the Spider column. The holder height adjustment is variable. The 3/8″ threaded bolt connection significantly expands the range of Spider Pro and Baby Spider Pro uses. The holder connects other accessories, such as boom arm, gooseneck, iPad holder, Tablet PC (#4) holder etc.

#5: Sheet music and concept holder (model number: 18873 + 18805)
New since April 2018: Just use the universal holder 18873 and connect the sheet 18805 to get the perfect sheet music and concept holder for »Spider Pro«.

Even more new uses for the Spider Pro:

#8 Controller keyboard tray (model number: 18876)
By placing the tray (1kg) on the upper support arms of the Spider Pro now even smaller synthesizers, controllers, drum machines etc. can be used. The integrated handle can also be used for cable management. The equipment stop with an integrated edge protective strip and the anti-slip rubber end caps provide extra hold.

Controller Keyboard Tray XL (model number: 18879)
The sturdy aluminium plate enables new applications for the »Spider Pro« keyboard stand. By placing the tray on the upper tilted support arms, synthesizers and other devices up to a depth of 400 mm can now be used.

Mounting accessories

A: Extension rod (model number: 18872)
Used with threaded bolt set 18864 to mount microphone booms to the »SPIDER PRO« and »BABY SPIDER PRO« when laptop rest 18868 is mounted. Basically an extension of the microphone boom to take it up over an open laptop.

B: Threaded bolt set (model number: 18864)
A set of two threaded bolts for mounting microphone booms to the »SPIDER PRO«” and »BABY SPIDER PRO« with (longer bolts) and without (shorter bolts) a laptop rest.

Adapter for »Spider Pro« (model number: 18853)
More options for your Spider Pro or Baby Spider Pro: The metal adapter plate is simply mounted under the plastic cover. The 3/8″ threaded bolt connection expands the range of Spider Pro uses. You can also securely attach heavy booms and sheet music holders.


When mounting accessories, the following information on possible combinations is important:

If two additional pairs of support arms are attached to the »SPIDER PRO« for a total of four tiers, neither the sheet music holder nor the iPad holder can be mounted as well. The sheet music or iPad holder can be mounted in addition to the usual two tiers and, depending on how the keyboards are to be played, also with three support tiers. The laptop rest and microphone boom can be mounted individually and at the same time.

Transport accessories

Carrying case for »SPIDER PRO« (model number: 18851)
For storing and transporting the »SPIDER PRO« keyboard stand. Made of sturdy, waterproof nylon. Features wrap-around zipper and 2 nylon handles.

Carrying case for »BABY SPIDER PRO« (model number: 18846)
For storing and transporting the »BABY SPIDER PRO« keyboard stand. Made of sturdy, waterproof nylon. Features wrap-around zipper and 2 nylon handles.

Trolley for Keyboard Stands (model number: 18806)
The unique trolley keeps your keyboard stand on the move. The trolley provides extra mobility on stage, in rehearsal rooms or at home. Both trolleys are adjustable in length. Thanks to the locking casters the keyboard stand can remain on the trolley while in use.


What is the maximum load capacity of the support arms?
Load capacity per support arm: 35 kg. Total load capacity of base: 105 kg.

Can I place a laptop on the top tier?
Yes, since the launch of the 18876 tray for controller keyboard in 2015, it is possible. By placing the tray on the upper support arms of the »Spider Pro« now even smaller synthesizers, controllers, drum machines etc. can be used.

How big the “Spider Pro” is when folded?
The total volume is 1215 mm. The carrying case is: 1280 x 180 x 185 mm.

How does cable management work?
The cables run along the side of the column and can be fixed with the cable clamps that come with the stand.

Can the “Baby Spider Pro” also be played when standing?
The maximum height of the “Baby Spider Pro” is 1 meter so it can also be played comfortably when standing. If an additional pair of support arms is mounted though, these cannot be attached at the top. So a person’s height determines whether he or she can play standing up.

    Hi I have I have purchased 2 of these spider keyboard stands the first one I had the bottom where frame Structure supporting the 4 legs developed a craic that got worse over time so that was a hazard , I bought a second one but now after a few months I noticed is leaning to on side slightly when folded out out on a flat surface I’ve checked the level of the flour and numerous flours to be sure , I just use a Yamaha motif es 6 on it and that’s well below the 105 kg limit you have on it .

    When I lifted the stand upside down I noticed the back legs are looser then the front when rotating the legs to unfold would are way looser you have spare parts for the inside of the legs at the centre structure ? It’s looks to some sort of plastic piece ? I could unscrew the legs and pop two of them In.

    Yours faithfully

    When extending the top tier to hold a larger keyboard the small rubber strip has fallen out.
    Is there any way to get a replacement as I don’t think it should have fallen out.
    Happy to pay for it if necessary.
    Kind Regards,

      Unfortunately I don’t know exactly which rubber part is supposed to have “fallen out”.
      But neither rubber part is available as a spare part. Because actually they can’t just fall out.
      If you still have the part, it can simply be “pushed back in”.
      If another rubber part has been lost or if you have further questions, please contact and send a photo of the product with the missing rubber.
      Best regards from your K&M Team
