Looking for very steady stand (prefer reasonably portable) for my Kawai E920. Any recommendation, please?

Currently X-type stand (bought together with the DP) is shaky especially playing lower register. I believe the DP mimic some string vibrations but a little too much vibration in my opinion.

Info of DP:
Kawai ES920 about 16 kg

Thanks.

For home or studio or school usage Kawai offers a nice looking matching stand with an option for a triple pedal. Why not go for this one?

For gigging the K&M 18810 is a great option, and also the K&M 18860.
Ultimately it comes down to what will be your main use case and what your personal preferences are. There are plenty of good keyboard stand options out there.

From km i use 18950

It's portable, but if you're moving a lot with it you better chose a lighter one. I love it at home. But giging with it would be uncomfortable.

Solid as a rock, that's for sure.

My stand is awesome too, also by K&M (K&M 18953)
you'll need to compare dimensions of your instrument to see, but of it's the same dimensions as the MP7SE, then from a sturdyness and portability Pov, it's fab.

There are some nicer looking stands for home USE, eg,
Yamaha LG-800.

I'm sure that the K&M stands are great, but they're also a bit pricey. If you'd like to save a few pennies, I highly recommend the OnStage KS7350:

I'm using it for my Kawai VPC1, which weighs almost twice as much as your ES920. The KS7350 costs about half what you'll pay for a K&M 18953.

Why spend $345 MSRP on a K&M stand, if you can get a Kawai HM-5 stand at $299 MSRP?

You guys over the pond must be getting charged import taxes. It's £105 over here ie, around $152.

I use a Roland Z stand which is by far the best stand I ever encountered, and I only like Z stands after years of using X, Y and other stuff.
Easily foldable and fits in the trunk of my car I keep one there always for gigging and one at my house for when it's there. Other Z stands such as the Hercules works too but the Roland has a much smaller footprint while being so so stable! couldn't be happier with it.
That being said if you don't gig or take the 920 out just get the matching furniture stand and triple pedal, cause why not? and it'll look nicer as well!
