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.

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?
We do not recommend it since there is the possibility the laptop might slip off or fall through. We offer our laptop rest specifically for this purpose.
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.
