Nothing beats the rock solid feel and small footprint of the Upton Bass stand! Our wooden floor stand keeps your bass secure and ready to play.
This UB double bass stand is the same one we use in our showroom. We’ve tried many approaches, and this stand has been improved upon for a decade! Heavy neoprene pads cushion and grip your bass – we’ve tried cork, it doesn’t have the padding or staying power. The stand’s heavy wooden construction also gives it stability unmatched by collapsable or short leaning metal stands.
We build these stands at our workshop from locally-milled solid, two-inch-thick sustainable Douglas Fir beams. The large footprint (20″ x 15″ x 7.25″) weighs in around ten pounds. The padded arms support the weight of your upright bass without scratching or compromising its finish. It does not stress the back of your instrument in the way short leaning stands do.
We started making these wooden stands in 2012 – after years of improvements based on customer feedback, this version is our best yet!
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 with neck support such as the Folding Double Bass Stand is a good option. Although both of these bass stand options are safe and secure, exercise caution when small children or large animals are nearby as this is a free-standing bass stand without a neck support.
