View Full Version : Music Stand as Carry On?

Has anyone taken a folding wire type music stand in a carry on bag on an airplane?

I'm going to the Reno Uke Fest next week and want to hurry from the plane to catch the airport shuttle so I would rather not check a bag if I can avoid it. I would appreciate hearing if anyone else has been successful carrying a music stand onto a plane or if it was taken away as a potential weapon.

I would also be interested to hear if anyone has an awesome alternative to taking a music stand to a festival in which you expect to attend workshops and be handed new song sheets.

Thanks in advance!

if it's a metal stand, I'd guess they might give you problems.

Thanks for the opportunity for some shameless advertising....this is exactly why you need the Kani Ka Pila Klip.......you can clip your music right on the headstock of your ukulele and may not need a music stand at all! http://kani-ka-pila.com/wordpress/kani-ka-pila-klip
