    Hamilton 600-N in chrome for me. Probably older than a few of my horns. It's discontinued so it's collectible!!!

    Ok before this goes off the rails maybe i should specify what im looking for?

    I need a decent stand to pack around to practice and maybe performances ,i'd like a solid one ,just so it lasts and a folding one so i can stuff it into some kind of a bag or whatever ,makes less stuff to drag around ,and besides the one i have now doesn't fold up which is a pain ,getting through doorways and stuff:-o

    Thanks

    I'm looking at this one from K&M:
    K&M 12120 Orchestra Music Stand - Thomann Sverige
    It looks very similar to what Vulgano Brother posted, but a different brand. It's even almost the same weight. Has anyone tried it?
    "Lightweight" means probably won't stand up to strong winds, but I'd be using it strictly for rehearsals indoors anyway.

    Brick(s), bunji cord, and music clips deter the wind(s).

    I bought a wirey Hamilton stand. Put a tiny hose clamp on the main shaft to keep heavy books up high. Standard socket fitting or a key edge will loosen/tighten it and hasn't damaged the main shaft.

    Aye, but the stand is very light-weight and can hold some pretty decently sized binders of music. The trumpet lyre was merely an example, the metal lyre is meant more so for smaller music, or you could hold some sheet music with a board there.
