The Ravelli Background Stand and Backdrops User Reviews

Good start for the home studio
“Very nice entry level kit and very adequate for family needs. Reasonable price. Muslin is a not quite as thick as hoped but very workable (set up against a wall with no windows or other light behind). Will likely need to invest in other color backgrounds over time, but black and white gets things rolling nicely. Stands seem sturdy enough. Like the carry bag too. No regrets. “ – By Chris J

Impressive Quality at a Great Price
“The stands are thick and sturdy, and the legs are braced against the center pole when extended, ensuring that a) they won’t collapse, and b) at any given point of extension, the legs are all equidistant from center. So the stands will always be level assuming a level ground. The feet are rubber to protect the floor and help to keep the stand from moving around..” – By Jeff Kraus

Not bad for the price
“Stands are actually pretty good. They extend well, nice action, are plenty tall, and seem nice and stable. There’s a bit of sag with all four cross poles installed, but the muslins that come with this set are only 9 feet wide (not the 10 feet stated in the description), so you only need 3 cross poles, and in that setup there is no sag. But even with the sag it shouldn’t be bothersome for anyone but a perfectionist. “ – By Jeff Magill

Outstanding
“The build quality of the stand is very solid. It can handle the weight of the heaviest muslins. It’s also extremely easy to put together. It came with instructions but I didn’t need them… and no I’ve never put one of these together before. The crossbar is made of four 3′ pieces which can be combined to create either a 6′, 9′ or 12′ crossbar. It would be great to get one piece that you could telescope for a bit more flexibility but I think this model gives the unit more strength to support heavier muslins. The storage bag for the stand is VERY good quality.” – By Pierre Exantus

Ravelli background stand review
“I’m a working pro photographer and I’ve rented this style backdrop stand several times and just got fed up and decided to buy. The Ravelli backdrop stand seemed to fit what I needed. The price was right, too. For the cost of one rental, I could have owned this stand. Now I do.” – By Gary W. Dowd

Easy to setup and breakdown…for 2 people
“This is my first experience with using backgrounds and it was made very easy using this product. I shot portraits for my parents 50th wedding anniversary and setting up the background stand was the easist part of the whole event. The carry bag is compartmentalized for the 2 stands (areas are padded) and the cross bars never rub against each other. Cross bars link together and even with a heavier background never sagged.” – By pstraz

One of the only sets that is large enough
“I purchased these to use for a home photography studio with a separate light kit. Overall, this set is a great deal for the size and price. It’s easy to set up and fairly sturdy. The muslins are a little thin, but that can be overcome by doubling them up and not placing them in front of a light source. I’d definitely say this was the best package to buy that I could find because the other’s were too small for a large group, tall models, or overhead sitting shots. Pretty happy with this set.” – By M. Cato

Pretty good for what I nedd
“This product does not seem sturdy, Like it could tip over..but for what I use it for…it works great! You need to put it up un front of something with no light coming thru…muslin is always a bit see thru with light…but that can also make for interesting effects. Super easy to put up and carry!” – By lisakatrine

Perfect for starters
“This is an excellent entry-level backdrop kit. If you are thinking of getting a backdrop kit for taking portraits, this is an excellent buy… The creasing will be minimum. The muslins themselves are not real heavy cotton, but they are of good quality. I found that the white one feels more thin than the black one. I would compare the thickness of the white as a heavy bed sheet, but this does not mean that the material is sheer or flimsy. You will not see what is behind the white one once is hanging from the crossbar. See my photos for more details on this kit. With everything that is included in this kit for $120 and the quality construction for the price, this is truly a bargain. “ – By Marc Morales

Perfect for starters
“I ordered this product about a week ago and it came before the anticipated delivery date, which I was thrilled about. It’s great for me because when down, it is very compact. The carrying case seems well put together. The stand itself seems a little wobbly, I will definitely have to put some weights at the base. Also, the muslin is a little thin, but putting them back to back seems to work wonders. I am just getting into portrait photography so this will be great for that. I will definitely have to upgrade at some point, but for now it will be perfect.” – By that camera chick
