This is a lightweight stand useful for all tenor and alto trombones. The nylon plastic center base allows a small amount of flex, but we've heard of no failures or tragedies ever. Several of our colleagues love these for their small bore tenor trombones. The tubular legs are very sturdy and should not fail even if you step on them.
This is a much better stand than the classic Hamilton, but is still very light and folds compactly. We only recommend this for bass trombones if you're careful.
Made in Germany. This stand should last you forever, and replacement parts are readily available. Weight = 2.6 pounds
