    OK fellow picc players. I need a good stand for my picc. I am sure there are a lot of opinions as to who makes the "best" stand. So, let me know where to look. I want one that won't scratch the bell but is also very sturdy. Thanks in advance.

    I use a K & M clarinet stand and it works just fine.

    I'm with Alex on this one, a K&M clarinet stand as well. Works great.

    Hey JC, you might want to go to a craft store and pick up a square of felt to wrap around it. Mine is a little loose too, but since it is just sitting there, it doesn't cause me any angst.

    That is exactly what I did with mine! I love it -- a custom fit!

    I figured I would add a bit of felt for protecting the bell anyway.

    I use a spider stand for mine, I just pull off the little rubber nob first.
