The Upton Bass Wooden Double Bass Floor Stand is the most elegant and strong bass stand we offer.
This sleek design creates a visible showcase for your double bass while keeping it out and readily at hand. Handmade in-house by Upton Bass luthiers, the Double Bass Stand stores your bass safely, off the ground, and securely supported. We started making these wooden stands in 2012 and after 6 years of improvements, based on customer feedback, the latest version is our pride and joy!
This upright double bass stand is stronger and sturdier than most metal constructed stands*. The padded arms support the weight of your upright bass without scratching or compromising its finish. If you need a secure stand to showcase your double bass in your home, the Upton Double Bass Stand is sure to please. Unlike other stands we’ve seen, this is not DIY big bog hardware store materials! These solid, Douglas Fir beams are milled locally out of FSC certified sustainable lumber, measure 2″ thick and weigh in at 10lbs (on average)! The heavyweight and large footprint offer your double bass more stability in a free-standing stand than many other designs we’ve seen.
A smaller version of the Upton Bass Stand is available for cello and viola da gamba. Having trouble finding a stand for your unique string instrument? Give us a call at the shop: +1 (860) 535-9399.
If you are looking for portability, a lightweight folding stand such as the Folding Double Bass Stand is a great option.
*Please note that although both of these bass stand options are safe and secure, it is wise to exercise caution when small children or large animals are nearby as this is a free-standing stand without a neck support.
