Hello all. So for the past few years I've been stand-less after becoming frustrated with the cheap Hamilton stand and I think it's time to invest in a new stand (to be honest though, it doesn't look like the Hamilton stand was designed with a bass trombone in mind). Anyway, as a bass trombonist, sturdiness is always a factor in stand-shopping and I'd love to hear what some members of the community here would have to say about/recommend stands appropriate for a bass bone. So far I'm looking at the Sheridan stand and the Adia stand which both look sturdy but do not specify "bass" trombone in their description. Thoughts? Recommendations? Experiences would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Jon

They have the K&M 14990 listed on Amazon, but the legs don't bend down like the UMI stand does. It's also $10 cheaper.

it's a little different - the ends of the legs are bent - I prefer this over the 14990.  Otherwise, yeah, the rest is the same.

The Wessex trombone stand is much sturdier than the K&M 14990.  I know, because I have both.  The Wessex is better for a Bass Trombone. And... the price is right !!!

Not quite as right when you factor in shipping from the UK.  That $20 stand becomes $45 to my door.

Maybe it's time to send a bunch of them to Michigan and see if you can get the shipping in the US down to a reasonable amount.

You're referring to the SDT-1, right? That stand looks pretty sturdy, and even with shipping it looks to be less than the K&M stand. Looks tempting!

I just bought one from this same link earlier this week. Total came out to just over $61.

The K&M 14990 stands are the best ... so far.  Regardless of the bend in the leg.

The Wessex stand looks good, and I do want to try one.  The price of the stand is right, but FedEx shipping is an issue for me.

Never look at the conductor. You just encourage them.

Have you noticed, some folk never stick around to help tidy up after practice?

Why is the bend in the leg a bad thing? Just curious. All my stands, trombone, music, mic, laptop, have straight legs.

To me it's not.  Those stands actually have a slightly wider stance than the ones without the bent legs.  I prefer them bent.

I didn't mean to imply it was bad, just different from the UMI stand listed above.
