These wire shelves work nicely!  Sam's Club carries something like this, if
your city has one.  They also had a matching computer desk (which,
naturally, I'm now sitting at, lol!).  We got a large 5 shelf model which
houses a few of our servers, has one shelf dropped a bit to hold hubby's
main keyboard (music, not typing), and the last shelf at floor level to hold
his pedals and a few rarely used items.  I believe it came with wheels, but
we left them off.  Just for a weight reference, his keyboard and one piece
of equipment caused a folding conference table to collapse.  They are now
happly stable one one shelf, and have plenty of equipment keeping them
company.  Simply put, these shelves are perfect!
