If you've had enough of putting your euphonium down on the floor on its bell, this little stand is the ticket. I/Steve find it to be especially useful when I'm doubling in an orchestra pit and have to make fast horn changes without leaning over or clanking around too much. It's also useful at home, so I can stand a euphonium up anywhere without having to worry about leaning it against the wall or risking it fall over. It's very stable and easily folds for travel. The new rubber pads are more durable than the old felt pads. Also fits Wagner tubas. Weight = 4.6 pounds. Made in Germany, this stand should last you forever. Replacement parts are easily available.
