A contrabassoon stand with a couple of home-made extra fitments serves well as a combined stand for a contrabass clarinet (paperclip type)
and bass clarinet (low C model). It is necessary also to have a practical quick-acting release screw for the contrabass peg, to enable rapid
pick-up of that instrument in performance without it standing too high while resting.
The basic stand is the König & Meyer stand no. 15045 . Prices vary a lot - look around!
