Laydown, or "cradle" type stands, are becoming more popular. "The Bass Bar" is a newer entry into this growing trend, and the designer/maker of this stand has got it figured out.

The Bass Bar uses a common leg design - a strong, braced tripod - and places a simple, effective crossbar across the top. Wide enough to easily accommodate any size bass, it's quite easy to lay the bass down securely between sets - no little "cup" to aim the endpin into, no "arms" to reposition, no adjustments to make during setup. Easy-peasy!

Made of a sturdy steel, with rubber feet and endcaps, the cradle portion features a durable neoprene pad where the bass contacts the stand, to protect against damage to your instrument. The design is very stable - it doesn't rock or slide around during use. And yet, of all the stands I've ever tried, it folds up into the most compact travel size of any upright bass stand that I'd trust my own bass with.

It even comes with its own zippered carry pouch, which has internal dividers to keep the two disassembled components from dinging each other up. Now that's a nice touch.

Special Offer

If your endpin extends more than 6-8" out of the bass when in playing position, the bass will probably "triangulate" on the endpin and two points on the stand. However, if you play the bass with the endpin not out that far, it's likely that the edges of your bass may contact the floor when placed on this stand. (See photo at right, which illustrates what I'm talking about.)

This may not bother you, but if it does, for just a small upcharge, we will include a pair of our durable rubber side bumpers, which you can apply to the contact point on the lower edge of your bass sides. These "stick on" bumpers will act as "feet" to protect the edges from any unwanted scratches or dinging. They'll also provide better "traction" on a slick floor, providing even more confidence that your bass ain't going anywhere.

We normally sell them in sets of four, to be "feet" for the bass when laid on its side edge - with the stand, you only would use two, so that's what we include.

Very nice stand for not a lot of bucks. Medium-duty construction is more than robust enough for larger books and binders of music, but still uses mostly plastic fittings for lower cost and lighter weight. Gets plenty tall enough for bass players - and it even comes with a carry bag!
