This is a storage stand for your 6/4 size tuba. It allows you to safely store the tuba outside of the case without standing it on the bell. It not only takes the pressure off the bell flare, but you can store the tuba in the middle of a room as needed. This stand is also helpful for pit orchestra jobs when changing of instruments may be necessary, and space is limited. Made in Germany of black powder coated steel with soft rubber-like arms to gently cradle your instrument. This should last you a lifetime, and replacement parts are readily available. It adjusts to fit many instruments and folds compactly for travel. A nylon carrying case with shoulder strap is available separately.
