    There are a few at Musicians Friend, you may also check out Business Depot and the like, or even Craig's list or something like that for computer desks. I got my computer desk for free, my ex's neighbour had it in their garage and were going to throw it out. I had to take it apart and put it together again to move it, but generally desks come as kits anyway. My desk is huge, similar to the one shown, but with the keyboard slide (Zoom R16 goes on that nicely) and 2 additional elevated shelves, prolly for a printer and fax, perfect for speakers. Be worth a look, you can some great deals on used furniture.
    There's somethin' out there waitin' for us, and it aint no man. We're all gonna die.

    the studio rta desk at MF is a good deal. If you have the time/patience, building your own can be a VERY cheap alternative.


    I ended up purchasing two sheets of plywood - $30 and made a custom workstation 6.5' wide x 30" deep (you can customize your own desk to fit your own needs).

    Plus, rack space rails can be puchased on ebay for $10 should you want rack space on your desk.

    I built my own desk about 5 years ago.
    Can be seen at Vinecrest Audio
    It holds my Mackie Control Universal as well a Big Knob and an integrated trackball setup so I can cruise across 3 screens.

    I built mine as well although I used laminate plywood so it was a little bit more (but still way under 300, it was a little over 200 to build this thing rack rail hardware, stain etc... included):


    You can fit an 88 key controller on the surface of this thing (it's pretty wide).


    The plans can be found here if interested:
