The Trombonist music stand is a taller version of the symphony Stand, with a vertical extension of 38″ to 60″ (lip to floor), with a maximum overall height of 72 1/2 inches. This Music Stand is specially designed for the trombonist. A neck connecting plate in the back of the desk is designed to be offset to either side of center to eliminate interference with the shaft and the trombone slide. This plate can be located either to the right or left side for those musicians preferring to play with the bell down – closer to the stand, or with the bell up and to the left of the desk. The fasteners needed to connect the plate in the desired position are included. It’s also ideal for standing musicians and those on risers or elevation platforms.
