New LP 12 KOK stand?
Over 500 dollars a pop :smt018

Whether it's expensive or not really depends on cost of production and how it compares to other stands, many of which are vastly more expensive. A basic Fraim (base+1 level) for example would cost you £1400.

Have your read Tom's comments on construction and cost here?

Without triangulation or cross bracing it looks spindly and, frankly, a bit KAK.

No cross bracing was the first glaringly obvious flaw on my first look.
