    I'm looking for a tuba stand suitable for playing standing and sitting. Portability is also a consideration. Recommendations would be appreciated.

    K&M make them, Thommans internet music store is probably the least expensive

    The only downside of that one as far as I can see from the image is that there is no recess for the little strap-holder-knobby-type-thingy that sits on the bottom bow on some instruments. The one I've seen has a strategically placed cut-out. Not sure which one it is - may be the K&M ... ?

    to be fair, no instrument made in the last 30 years or so have actually had the knobbly -type-thingy. so it shouldn't be a problem

    I can well believe it, they will always be the last instruments to be renewed

    There are still a lot of really good quality 30+ year old tubas around, much sought after as they are a better build than a lot of the "Lottery" tubas that were churned out in the 1990s early 2000s.
