My recorder stand arrived the day after I ordered it from the Early Music Shop and was exactly as described on the website. My only critique of the stand is that I would have liked the stand to be supplied with more larger pegs suitable for larger recorders. I have three alto recorders, and while these can be stored on the smaller pegs without falling over, the are somewhat wobbly. The stand is only supplied with one peg designed for an alto.
I would have preferred a couple of extra dowels in the packet that were a little larger, so I could change them accordingly. I am very satisfied with the design of the stand and it is well-made. It resembles a piece of furniture, sturdy and lovely sort of wood. Overall, I am satisfied.
Nice finish, arrived promptly.
