The stands for piccolo trumpet, trumpet, flugelhorn and French Horn are made after the tried and proven principle of the carbon stands for clarinet, but with some important adaptations to cope with the specific requirements of the brass instruments.
The piston valve trumpet stand is also suitable for cornet, the wider German rotary valve trumpets have their own model.
The base of the stand is a synthetic cylinder with 4 small holes and one larger hole. The small holes hold 4 carbon legs with little magnets, the holes themselves also have a magnet. The length of the legs depends on the instrument’s weight and dimensions.
The large hole contains one wide carbon tube, that is generaly upgoing but not vertical. The exact angle depends on the instrument. On the “vertical” tube one or two adjustable synthetic rings with felt protection secure the perfect fit to any instrument. When the instrument is put on the stand with the center of gravity directly above the central part of the stand, the combination is super stable. It may look awkward, but it is the logical way to buitl a brass stand: In this way WoodWindDesign stands use the weight and the asymmetrical built of the instrument in stead of compensating for it with tons of dead metal. The same principle is used with our trombone stand, but also with the stands for woodwind instruments.
For transportation the carbon fiber legs can be removed from the base, and stored in the central tube. The complete stand fits for transportation inside the instrument.
