    I'm still using a K&M 3-leg stand on my cornet. Five reasons...I've had it forever and don't want to chuck it, it's lighter to carry, it fits in my case, the shorter instrument is stable on it, and there are fewer legs, so there is more open space for the 3rd valve slide to fit between the legs. You see, when the cornet is on a stand, the 3rd valve slide will slowly extend all the way to the stop, and is a tad longer than the edge of the bell...

    I use a newer 5-leg one for trumpet, though.

    It's a cinch to fix the type of damage you described. Any repair tech worth his salt could do it in his sleep.
    If you're ever in Greensboro, NC look me up at Don's Music City and I'll do it on the cheap and in a hurry.
    Cheers!

    I thought the two-legged stands were the worst...

    No, the one-legged ones are the bad ones...:lol:
