It's just a stand, what's the big deal? For years, I used one of the light weight Hamilton bass stands that has a similar design to this stand. While lightweight and portable, the Hamilton's questionable stability always bugged me - it always felt like a good gust of wind might blow my bass right out of the arms of the stand and send it tumbling to the floor - never mind a clumsy bandmate. The robust Hercules SD590B and Ingles SA22 stands that we sell offer a sturdy place to put your bass, but I have to admit these larger stands can be a bit bulky to carry around for one of those quick-in/quick-out gigs.

K&M is a well-known and respected musical stand manufacturer based in Germany, and I feel their design and execution of a highly portable upright bass stand beats the Hamilton. And now they've made it even better than before! This newly improved 141 stand offers a sturdier base, low-profile black powdercoat finish, a newly improved triangular endpin "cup," and even an optional bow holder.

It's simple to use. Once set up, you simply place the tip of your endpin into the triangular "cup" on the front foot (see photo, right), then lean the bass backwards into the cradling arms of the stand, which hold the bass by the C-Bouts (rather than the shoulders of the bass, like the Hamilton.)

It can be difficult to come up with a very compact design for confidently holding a very large instrument, but K&M has pulled it off. The very solid frame opens up with spring-lock arms which supports the upper body of the bass at its slim center, while the endpin is secured in the small cup affixed to the stand's foot. Simple and effective, it holds the bass with a minimum of contact, making it easy to grab it and play - some have even played the bass while in the stand, since the stand does not interfere with access to the neck.

The stand comes with a flexible plastic bow hook, which attaches to the top tube, if you often play with a bow and need a secure place to hang it - but if you don't ever use a bow, it also comes with a plain cap to put in its place, making the folded stand even smaller! You can see just how small it folds up in the photo below; a standard baseball cap is in the photo to give you some perspective on the size of the folded stand.


The K&M 141 stand folds to a very compact travel size, and is very lightweight (5.5 lbs)



Above, see new version (left) and original chrome version (right) - the new version has a sturdier base, larger tubing, non-reflective black finish, bow hook, and improved endpin cup.


Also available, this lightweight carrying case for easily toting around your stand; the case is waterproof and features nylon carry straps and a zipper closure. Purchase it together with the stand and receive free US shipping on both items!

Check out our FAQ on fitting the stand into the case - it's a tight fit, but it does fit!




The stand is height-adjustable and thereby fits all string basses. Soft, covered adjusting arms protect the finish and provide slip-resistant contact.
