This stand will withstand a hurricane. Hopefully you won’t ask us to prove that.
Among the many features of this near indestructible it has a multi-functional yoke and base rest which allows you to place your instrument facing towards or away from the stand for easier access.
The base rest securely holds the bassoon even with a floor peg extended. There is also a lever height adjuster which positions the yoke to accommodate different bassoon keywork placements. The swivel legs with locking pins are easier to maneuver around other instruments in a tightly set up orchestra or pit situation.
It extends from 26.4″ to 39.8″ when in use. It folds to 24.8″ x 5.9″ for transport. Total weight is just under 5 pounds.
