Default Stand for Tenor

hello everyone,

my band plays hosbilt drums and were looking for some type of stand to hold the drums while we practice... all my side drummers have standard snare stands (like for a kit drum) but they are to small for the tenor drums...

all my tenors are 16" drums. if anyone knows of something out there that i can get please let me know so i can look into it further.

thx.

If you know anyone with an older snare drum stand for drum kit, it will probably work. I have a handful of 'Classic' Ludwig Snare stands that I use for my rope drums. They are 16" in Dia- Here's a pic.

I use a key board stand for my 18" for concert performances. It's has a multi height adjustment, which means I can adjust it to fit the drum. Even on stage or floor with a lot of people moving around it's stable.

I do not believe in drummers especially young drummers using drum stands at practice sessions.

I firmly believe in all drummers carrying their drums at practice sessions as this is the way you play at competitions.
Practicing constantly carrying your drum is the only way you will feel totally comfortable in the competition arena.

If I had used a stand at practice sessions then competed carrying my drum I would have felt very uncomfortable in the competing arena.

Thanks for your input Kaily, and i agree with you about carrying the drum, however.... This stand was for my wife to play a Robbie Burns concert and she was 6 months pregnant. Carrying the drum was not an option, neither was not playing.

On a seperate note, I did find a pretty cool keyboard stand that worked really well. If anyone from the industry is reading you'd probably make a ton of money if you created a stand for tenor drums, maybe something similar to the KP stand??? just an idea...

A couple of years ago the Shotts boys were all outside the Todd bar prior to the Worlds and they were playing practice pads attached to stands.....My first and only thought was and is 'gimmick'......

I'm not into all these pads that attach to harnesses or stands for pads etc...use a table for yer pad or use yer drum....and save some dosh
