I have one too! But all the screws can work loose, I prefer a K/M.

Dreadful things. Guaranteed to do more harm than good.

The K&M or Hercules bassoon stands are far better.

There was a Hercules bass clarinet stand that's worse than the La Voz one and should never have seen the light of day. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Hercules-DS560B-Bass-Clarinet-Stand/144498788 Whoever designed that thing clearly had no idea what a bass clarinet is or had a sense of practicality.

I have the Hercules b.c. stand in your picture and I agree. I'm glad to read your comment, because I've always wondered if it was really as awkward as I thought it was.

I use it at home sometimes when I just want to put it aside for awhile to do something else, but I would never use it in a rehearsal or performance when I'm going back and forth among different instruments.

And there is also this:

I don't play bass, but I do play alto which has a long floor peg. I started with the very heavy K&M stand. Then I discovered the woodwind design. It is very lightweight, stable, convenient. (Since it is made for a bass it is too long to fit inside my alto so I made a carry bag for it.) Yes it is costly, and some people I know have had to wait months for delivery. I was fortunate in that it arrived in less than two weeks. For me it was definitely worth the wait and the money.

I've got a different Hercules stand for B.C. and bassoon ā€“ it's pretty easy to use and very solid, if a bit clunky:

was that an alto sax stand with the add-on?
I have a few LaVoz stands. Replaced the "rubber band" like material over the areas and still works fine. I also have the soprano sax, clarinet and flute pegs.

I had a dual alto/tenor sax stand at one time too.

I knew someone who used one on his low Eb BC. He did not use the extension.

I have a similar one for bari sax. The lever action ā€œUā€ grips the bell more securely than most other stands. I modified mine though to change the angle of the U by 20 degs or so.

Yes, Hercules sells two bass clarinet stands. The one marketed as "bassoon/bass clarinet" is much better than the one marketed as "bass clarinet".

I use a Jiffy stand with my bari and an Adams stand with my bass, both are a similar design with the clamp on the bell which slots onto the base. They may look like bottle jacks, but they're far more practical than cradle-style stands and excellent for pit band doubling.

I recently bought a brand new K&M contrabassoon stand and there's far more plastic parts on it than I'm comfortable with. At least the older K&M bassoon/bass clarinet stands were an all metal affair.
