http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/g=guitar/search/detail/base_pid/450819/ Recently I decided that I felt safe enough to take a couple basses out of their cases and into stands whenever they're not being played - to be admired I've got a couple A-frame style stands already but they don't fit basses very well unless the bottom is fairly flat and symettrical. So I got a couple of those tubular stands from Musicians Friend, but they don't feel very safe to me. They seem to do alright with a couple of my guitars but when I put my bass on there it'll tip over (frontways) with just a small nudge from the back. Like the front legs aren't positioned far enough forward to offset the weight very well. Especially when I go to pick the bass up off the stand - as soon as I lean the bass forward and take the weight off the neck retainer, *tip* goes the stand. Very annoying. Right now I've got them lined up with an HSC laying over the back legs to pin them down. I'm thinking about duct-taping the legs to the floor or something Anyone else have a simmilar experience? Or do you have a reccommendation for a good safe stand?
