Anyone making a 'presentable' bass stand for home use?

    Lots of stands out there in the world and for stage use I have a Hercules locking stand...

    ...but my wife has only now realized that having a bass in our 'presentable living space' (living room, dining room or bedroom) is sort of a fact of life...and she's tired of moving whatever bass I'm using for my daily workout. And she's allowed that if 'we' have to live with one around, is there a nice presentable stand available?

    Any thoughts on a stand (not a wall hanger, etc) that's decent and fits in less with stage and more with 'furniture'? I have plenty of metal folding etc. looking for something that fits in a 'grown up' space.

    Those stands look amazing. My only problem with them is the price. Would need 5 of those bad boys and in 3 of those situations the stands would cost more than the instrument :roflmao:

    Wow. Those look really nice. I like the WM shape even better. That pricing isn't out of the ballpark, but definitely healthy. I wonder if they make one big enough (or custom) that would work for my Dingwalls. Thanks! Some really nice options. Right in line with what I was hoping to find.

    My dad could make either of those for about $50. Make it a 90 degree angle at the top and it's $30. :roflmao:

    I hear you, except $30 wouldn't even purchase the wood blanks for some of their offerings.

    True for.some of the most exotic ones. But you can't swing a dead cat without hitting flamed maple in his shop. Most of it came from old tables or other furniture in houses he sold. I think we're going into the guitar stand business. :thumbsup:

    Be advised that they have patented their products.

    I doubt patents would be very enforceable for the functional aspects of those stands. I would guess that trademarking the designs would carry more weight.

    This is a free country. You are permitted to doubt and guess about whatever you choose.

    I was merely giving a TB brother the heads up that they have their patent numbers prominently displayed on their webpage.

    Affirming that in the context of a discussion thread is unnecessary.

    Might have to give making one of those a try.

    Find a woodworker in your area and ask him or her to make you something. A good friend of mine made this for me. It's walnut. I gave him creative license to do whatever he wanted, but if I had it all to do over, I would've probably had him make it more of a wall hugger.
