The color of the light
The different lights give off different types of light. The LED’s are slightly different than the traditional bulb. This is something to consider if you have sensitive eyes and are going to be looking at your music with the lamp on for hours.
The lamp height
If you are looking for a small lamp to clip on to your music stand there are many to choose from. But if you are looking for a floor lamp that casts more light over a larger area it is something to consider.
Built in or separate
If you already have a music stand you can buy a separate music stand lamp for your stand. They have different types of attachment depending on what you are after. There are stands that have built in lamps into the music stand. So be sure you know what you want.
So good luck finding the perfect music stand lamp for your needs and keep in mind some of these suggestions.
