    Default Light for music stand

    I'm having a challenge reading the music on my music stand at home. Do any of you use a light on your stand? If so, which one/

    I use a "standard lamp" behind my seat, effectively shining over my shoulder. I found anything closer gave uneven lighting and/or "hotspots".

    If there is an "on-stand" illumination solution that gives an even spread of light over an A4 (vertical) or even A3 (horizontal) page I'd be keen to hear of it
    There are those who will wax lyrical about the ability to play a double shuffle with a split fan and a tight G-string ...

    I just bought a Donner DL-2 LED Music Score Light. It was $10 +/- It seems to work well in my tests at home I have not used it in a performance situation yet.

    It has LED lights on two flexible arms and does a pretty good job of lighting up my music.

    I have an LED flexible desk lamp for when I want to read, bought it from LIDL, so may well be a solution for you.

    I use the Biolite USB FlexLight on a cell phone type battery brick. I carry both in my backpack or tote for other uses, too. I use it for lighting when not near an outlet, such as when camping. It is a dandy laptop light in a dark room.

    I use a flexible necked floor lamp, one can put it whereever he/she likes -- works great. My wife uses it in her sewing room too.

    It's light (Ha?) and easy to carry around.

    How do you use a light when you are performing in a group?
