WoodWindDesign's new carbon stand for tenor saxophone (PATENT PENDING) is extremely stable due to the big footprint of the four legs with rubber feet, the shock absorbing design and the specially designed bell holder. This bell holder is a perfect match to the curves of the bell itself, and therefore has a big contact area with the bell. Because this contact area is lined with real rubber (no foamrubber) the grip on the instrument is perfect, as is the protection of your instrument. When you place the instrument a bit awkward in the stand when you have to change instruments very quickly, the instrument will stay in that position and will not slip further or tilt. Compare pictures 5 and 6.
The two lower instrument supports are the endings of the rear legs. Of course these contact points are lined with rubber for extra grip and protection. With the optional adapter (alto adapter for tenor stand, code ada) the stand is also suitable for alto saxophone. This is not a compromise, since the special bell holder with the rubber lining provides excellent grip on the alto's bell.
Lightweight and telescopic design
The stand can be fully disassembled through the durable friction joints. The five carbon tubes have different diameters and they all fit into one another. Tubes and tube holder can be stored into the tenor's bell. The bell holder fits over the bell in the case. Because of this feature, you will always have your stand with you, literally without feeling the extra weight, which is only 190 grams / 6.7 oz. Yet another advantage is, that you do not have an extra luggage item, which is excellent when you travel with public transport or with multiple instruments. Also: you do not have to make extra costs at checking in at the airport, because your stand is where the instrument is.
