The Sousaphone Stand from HERCULES Stands provides a sturdy base on which to rest your instrument. Ruggedly constructed, the stand features a reinforced main tube with beveled load-bearing and a metal tripod housing. To protect the finish of your instrument from dents and scratches, specially formulated foam coats the yokes and backrest. Locking pins, a folding yoke, and a center screw make the stand easy and fast to both set up and tear down. The one-piece design folds up compactly when it's time to go.
