    It is. Bought it in the late 70's and that thing is still going strong. I have it hooked into a base amp (in the corner between the organ and Kertzweil and the large bank of dual speakers which it is sitting on. I can move the house off its foundation with that thing.

    Sun Ra used to move large audiences off their seats with it.

    I have the stand pictured and it is very sturdy, works well at gigs, well designed and constructed. I particularly like how it breaks down for storage and transport. I settled on this stand, amongst other choices, because I could take the broken down stand and store it within the bell and then within my case. An excellent opportunity to use space judiciously. Now for the concerning part...after storing the stand in the bell a few times, I have noticed that the stand fits very snug within the bell and keeps the horn from drying out. The stand has had moisture on it and there has been moisture within the horn. Needless to say I do not think this is a good thing. I am still using the stand as a stand but I transport it separate from being inside the bell. A bummer but I still am happy with the stand.

    The organ player in the rock band I played with in high school had an M3. One night the other trumpet player and I decided to help him out and carried it up a spiral staircase. I thought the owner would kill us when he found out.
