Fabulous alternative to a "traditional" horn stand. Keep your horn out at home so you put in more practice time!
The feature that has recieved the most comments is how easy it is to place the horn in the stand. You simply drop it in!No rotating the horn for the optimal contact points, no fussing about placing it gently to prevent dents to the flare. Soft Stands work fine with 'duck's feet' and hand straps. Great for those times you have to change music quickly, such as outside on windy days, when you need both hands for moving music and wind clips.
Construction Details: All stands are handcrafted. The sling is made of black, pill-resistant polar fleece fabric purchased from Malden Mills. It is the highest quality fleece fabric available. Soft, closed-cell foam is secured inside the sling to pad the top and inside surfaces of the top rails. Nylon gliders are attached to the feet. The vertical legs are satin-finished anodized aluminum tubing. An elastic “bungee cord” inside each leg holds the stand securely together. Stand is easily (after just a little practice!) broken down to a compact 4” by 12” inch bundle for easy transport. Assembly and care instructions are provided. A heavy-duty Cordura 1000 nylon bag is provided for storage. The Soft Stand for Horn weighs about 2 1/2 pounds, which is a few ounces less than Koenig & Meyer stands that are designed for guitars but are sold for use with horns. Soft Stands are inconspicuous on the stage. Your horn can be placed in stand quickly and securely.
