If you are looking for a great studio desk it's perfect. The desk suits my needs I must be completely honest the desk is a little bigger than I expected so make sure you have suitable space. As far as the design though, it's sturdy, beautifully crafted and makes my workflow a lot easier. Customer service is also amazing. My desk came with 2 of the same pieces and I contacted customer service and it was resolved within a few days. I must admit this company has surpassed my expectations. It's well worth the investment! I hope this review helps you make that decision to purchase, you will not be disappointed.
I love my white StudioDesk BEAT. It holds my gear in place and within easy reach. I've used it almost daily for 6 weeks now.
I use the keyboard drawer in and out all the time--great! I also find myself sliding in the glass tabletop a little when I pull out the lower shelf, which works well. My computer monitor is wider than the space between the BEAT's two shelves, but the base of the monitor sits on the desk and the flat monitor then comfortably comes in front of the shelves a little. This means it's in the right place and at a good height for me.
I bought white Kali LP-6's to match my white BEAT--awesome look! I use a Logitech MX Master 3 mouse on the glass tabletop, which works flawlessly.
Here are pictures of my music studio before and after.
It looks really awesome and it’s sturdy as hell.
Things that could’ve been better: the alignment of the holes (also, some holes were oversized) so if I have to take it apart and put it back together, the fitment might not be the same.
The hardware that mounts the keyboard rail/track was not screwed on properly so that it’s flush. I mean, you’re drilling through wood, you think they’d make sure they’d try to do it properly.
Some of the pieces had smudges and minor scuffs. While they tell you to check for damage, it’s just a big hassle to break the pallet open AND unbox every single piece WHILE the delivery guy waits for your signature. So you have to take a chance and hope that whoever packaged your desk does you a solid and makes sure you get your money’s worth by keeping everything clean and protected. Which this time, they kind of didn’t. But it’s okay, I still love it and I made peace with the fact that nothing can be perfect.
Thank you, I love this Desk so much
I like the look of the Beat desk and have been thinking of purchasing one for a while.
What would be very helpful is to do a version with a wider space between the upper shelves so an iMac 27 would fit.
