Editor's Notes

March 25, 2019:

Added both the Zither Floor and Vio Music Brugundy (which are both constructed with wood) as elegant yet practical alternatives to basic steel options. The Zither Floor is also one of the only models available in a wide array of color schemes, which only adds to its value and helped it achieve its high ranking. The String Swing Studio, another new addition, differentiates itself as a wall-mounted model, which makes it attractive to those who may live in an apartment or condo where space is at a premium. Removed the Gearlux Stand, which in reality was not suitable for cellos at all, only ukuleles, mandolins and violins. Also pulled the Peak Music SC-20 from the list due to reports that it poses a damage risk to cellos; the holders appear prone to rubbing against the instrument, which can leave marks, and the bottom support piece breaks rather easily.
