I'm in a bit a of a quandary. I need a stand that will hold my UB in "playing position" or somewhat close to playing position. I currently play electric for this gig but I want to start doubling. Our show moves very quickly with very little time for me to switch instruments. Plus the stage set up usually very tight. To complicate things, I'm required to sit on a stool while performing and I also sing while playing. I need to be able to switch quickly while seated, and as far as my mic goes, I can swing it out of my way but I won't have time to adjust it otherwise. I also need to be within arms reach my charts and my amp. Sorry, I can't afford a roadie. I'm currently considering buying a Hamiltion stand or something similar. When playing UB I think I'll be able to take the bass out the arms of the stand and leave the end pin in the little cup while playing and then when I need to stwich over I can just set it back in the stand and pick up the electric and go. I've read most of the threads out there about stands. I know the Hamilton isn't the most stable stand available, but at this point I don't see any other alternative. What do you all think? Any input or suggestion will be greatly apreciated.
