Default Music stand recommendations

I'm looking to buy a really solid, transportable music stand. I want it to do pretty much everything. It needs to be sturdy enough to hold a Real Book. My current flimsy stand just buckles under the weight of those things. I need illumination, too, whether it be built into the stand or an external accessory. I'll take recs on those, too, if you have any. It's going to get loaded in the trunk along with my other gear.

Bring on the recs!

My favorite, by far is the Manhasset stand. It might not be the most portable though because it doesn't easily break down.

been dragging stands around for 25 years.

if you need to really make it portable and flat you can always pull the bottom off

it is well worth it .... I have one that I use now that I've have been dragging to gigs since probably 1997
We have one of those at work. It's great.

Unfortunately with a school purchasing budget we can't get a full set...!

Would love to get one like Steve Gadd's tech. built for him. The top folds flat onto the table.
Looks like it sits on a standard cymbal stand so only two pieces to carry to the job.

I borrowed a Manhasset stand from my high school band room when I was a junior in high school so I could easily practice at home.

I'm 42, and I still use it every week. It's been dragged all over the place, and whenever I get over this "music phase" of my life, I'm taking it right back to the high school. :)

Is Manhasset the style or the brand?

I have a Manhasset style music stand, I'm sure I got it at a GC.

Anything less isn't good enough. Plus it makes a nice trap table if you don't have to read music on the gig

Manhasset is a brand, although, I wouldn't doubt it if imitators advertise "Manhasset style".

All the Manhasset stands at my school constantly come loose where the feet connect to the base. We tighten the nut, it comes loose in a few days and the stand leans. I also can't put a bunch of conductor's scores on one without it slipping, so I'm not sure about a real book plus a light.

We're gradually getting rid of all our Manhassets and replacing them with Wengers, which have a better system for securing the base.

But for gigs, at least get something with folding legs. My perfect gigging stand would be one of those where the solid tray folds in half, the legs collapse down and it all fits in my hardware case.
