Again, I am going to "stand up" for my pack-a-stand!
It all depends on how you use it and what you use it for! I've had mine for
about 8 years and am very happy with it. I have never had mine get knocked
over - I keep it right up against my music stand, so someone would have to
walk into THAT in order to get to the clarinet!
And it is extremely easy to carry!
P.S. to Jacqueline: Fredrick's of Oslo? :-)
