    I'm looking for a sturdy, on-stage stand that can put up with a stage full of moving people! I'm in a group that tends to shake a stage a bit, and jumping up and down is not out of the question. I need a stand that will hold my basses while I'm out raging around. I purchased the A-Frame stands (compact design) and so far they're holding up fine - in my rehearsal space! Anyone have any advice? Thanks
     
  2. basic rule in the book of dr.AllodoX : when not playing your bass, it rests in it's hardshell.

    and that includes on-stage.

    I use Ultra stands but there isn't a lot of activity during breaks. If there were I'd put it in the case away for the crowd when not in use.

    I use a warwick rockstand (the 3 bass model). Very sturdy and holds the basses at 3 points

    Just went on Warwick's site. No stands for sale anymore :-(

    Definately get a rockstand, I have one and it is really stable. Probably the most stable/stury/compact tri-stand available.
    It fits 3 basses in a very tightspace.

    One word of caution RE the Rockstand. When I was looking at them, the salesman cautioned that you can bump one instrument and knock it into another. May not be a problem for most, but on a tight stage...... I have a tri-stand (Ultra?) which has thick black foam, including on the spring-loaded clip at the top which keeps the bass from falling out. The only possibility for damage would have to be serious, like a drunk staggering around on stage. Thank goodness the guitar player is 6'5" and about 275 lbs., so they tend to keep their distance :p
