“ Brand: Karacha / Type: Guitar stand for electric or acoustic guitars „
This is a pretty standard guitar stand, but does exactly what you need at a cheap price. One of these should cost £10 maximum.
You can use this stand for most types of guitar, either electric or acoustic, very versatile & makes your guitars very easily accessible, meaning you'll probably end up playing them more than if they're packed away in a flight case somewhere. I prefer this kind of stand to a wall hanging stand, but that's down to personal preference I guess.
You can get them in several colours (in case the bright pink stand featured isn't to your taste) & it folds up so it can be used at home, when rehearsing or gigging & pretty much anywhere else. It's still possible to knock over a stand like this, as with anything, but your guitars will definitely be a lot safer.
There are other guitar stands that hold the neck of the guitar in place to provide added support, I've had both kinds & I actually prefer this type. It's pretty weightless & will never get in the way. Strongly recommended.
I bought this guitar stand by 'Karacha Guitars' a few years ago and it's served me well the entire time, resting my Ibanez guitar in peace and safety. It cost me about £20 from an online retailer, and it arrived in a cardboard box almost fully assembled - the rubber attachments of the legs, hangers and top lip needed attaching.
My stand is black, and it blends behind the guitar, allowing it to take centre stage. I don't like the idea of having a pink stand (as in the picture), it takes some of the glamour from the instrument in my opinion. the stand works perfectly as it should. The arms which grip the guitar underneath support it excellently. The fact that they swivel allows for any guitar shape (provided its not a double-neck) to sit nicely.
The stands materials are high quality, painted steel and flexible rubber padding. IT weighs hardly a thing and can be easily transported, though it doesn't fold up to save on space. The feet offer stability to the product which won't tip, despite the weight of the guitar sitting on top. The rubber feet grippers allow for extra friction against carpet and hard flooring, all of which the stand performs excellently.
There is a reinforcing brace between the triangular lengths of the main structure. I'm not sure this is entirely necessary as it doesn't seem to add much extra strength. In general the shape and structure works well however, and I find its styling to be simple, all the component, lines and edges necessary for the things function ahead of its form. But it works well as a nice object to have in any room - especially whilst displaying a guitar of beauty.
Overall, nothing can be faulted with this spectacularly simple, nice looking, does-the-job product from 'Karacha Guitars' - I recommend it fully to anyone with a 3/4 sized to full sized ordinal guitar.
This guitar stand it an extremely useful piece of equipment to have for any guitarist. I have 2, one for my electric, and one for my acoustic, so both types of guitars can fit in this stand. It is very easy to use, and allows extremely easy access to your guitars, which i find makes me play it a lot more than i normally would! The stand is also very compact and lightweight, making it good for travelling with to gigs, band practicing, or just jamming. It is also very stable, which means your guitar should stay safe and will not fall over.
One complaint with it may be that it would be better with something to hold the neck of the guitar for some added safety, but this would make it larger and therefore not as portable etc.
Overall a brilliant piece of equipment, at a very good price (roughly £10). Great for carrying around with you as well as keeping in one place.
My eleven year old daughter has been learning the guitar for a while now, we actually bought her an electric guitar last year but when school arranged the lessons they loaned her an acoustic one. This meant we had two guitars to store, it seemed a shame to just bung them in the cupboard as Alice needs to practice regularly so I looked around for some way of putting them away but keeping them in full (and remindable!) view.
Having never bought a guitar stand before I didn't know what on earth I was looking for. Luckily I hit the jackpot with the very first stand I looked at, this prettier-than-average pink stand made by Karacha.
It's a very basic item which won't take much describing. As you can see from the piccie above it's a standard A-frame guitar stand, supplied in one piece so no fiddling around to put it together. It's in its folded state upon purchase and all I needed to do was slide the rubber feet on and screw in the actual guitar holding hooks. This was very easy; the feet went on nice and smoothly with just the one bugger which refused to push along properly, forcing me to ask Mark to help. There's always one, isn't there?!
When erected it stands roughly 18 inches high, the only thing to remember is that once the guitar is placed on the stand it will naturally be top heavy so you do need a level area for it to live. Alice has a wooden floor in her bedroom and that's perfect, although she did place it on top of her fluffy rug to begin with but it wobbled so badly that we were always worried it was going to fall (especially with all the door slamming that goes on in this house!) but now we've moved it across the room slightly it's extremely stable. The rubber feet stop it sliding even when I've polished the floor, something which is important to me personally as my three year old runs around the house at breakneck speed and several times she's crashed into this stand and not caused it to slide across the room and spill her sister's guitar onto the floor.
When not in use the stand closes up to form a thickish bar shape, this is ideal for storage although really I feel this isn't the type of item you'd want to store and it itself is a storage item! It's not as practical to fold as it might sound anyway as the hooks stick out quite far so to get a truly flat guitar stand you'd need to go to the effort of unscrewing these hooks and putting them away safely to really save much room. Obviously, Alice keeps hers up all the time - after all, the girl can't even manage to put a pair of shoes away, much less store a guitar and stand neatly out of the way! Kids!
The stand will hold both of Alices guitars comfortably (not together, only one at a time!) as the hooks are wide enough to accommodate both acoustic and electric guitar shapes. When you first get it you might worry that there isn't enough support for the guitar, but honestly this stand is much more stable and efficient than it looks. The guitar simply sits on the hooks then leans back onto the back of the stand, this makes it an easy process to place to guitar on and also to take it off quickly (when she should be practising and hears me coming up the stairs, quickly shutting down Facebook and grabbing the guitar).
The pinkness of the stand is great, making quite a dull item suitable for the army of girls who are now taking up the guitar as an instrument. The price was in line with basic black guitar stands, not higher as most girly pink things are, and Alice loves being the only one in her friendship group who has such a quirky coloured guitar stand.
£9.99 (well spent) from Amazon.
Moving into my own place eventually in the middle of last year it was only a short matter of time before I did something I was unable to do in my previous bedroom at my parents, and that was to proudly display the Guitars I have on various stands around a dedicated music room. I was out on the hunt for an affordable, stylish and sturdy Guitar stand and came across this via word of mouth was immediately convinced it was the right product for me and have been ever since!
Karacha was a brand I must admit I was vastly unfamiliar with prior to buying this product but now I am confident I will use the site and the product when looking for accessories.
This is designed as a universal Guitar stand and comes in a wide range of colours. I possess the black version but it is available in about 7 different colours including the bright pink one show here!
The stand is easily assembled requiring very little effort with just a tiny few bits added, a bit of unfolding and there you go you are ready to use.
Now for the price of £9.99 you may have been expecting something cheap, nasty and unsteady that provides no support to the instrument. Thinking that then you would be wrong! From as soon as you get the item out of the box you will feel it has a vast heavy weight that gives confidence. It is superbly put together and has a sturdy standing on the various surfaces I have tried it on.
In the few months I have used it I have had no issues, the base stays steady, even when knocked lightly it remains upright and I have every confidence in putting my most expensive Guitar in these holders.
Good value for money for displaying Guitars and does an excellent job of keeping them upright and for all to see!
