    Has anyone found a nice, small acrylic display standoff showing off horns?
    i figured someone must have solved this on here, so I thought I would ask before buying and trying a bunch of stuff

    So here is what I have found....

    Tall Double-Bend Easels

    I have ordered the 6.25", 8.375", & 10.5".
    Those three cover the range of small cornet (my York) to flugel (my Phaeton).
    To reduce wear between these stands and the horn (in case of any errant vibrations in the house) I picked up some small, clear rubber feet and white felt pads at Home Depot and stuck them to the contact areas. Felt to protect and rubber to "lock in" each horns from sliding front to back.
    I went a little wider on each to help balance the weight of the bell on the trumpets (middle size).
    I will post a pic when I get my cabinet all set up.
