I bought this stand about a week ago and have been using it since. It's an amazing for anyone thats not looking for a space efficent stand. The only down side I have about this stand is that it only has 3 legs. A 5 leg design would be nicer. It's a little tricky at first to figure out exactly where you need to have it adjusted to but once you have it you'll have it everytime after that. I would recomment this to any trumpet player, student to profesional.
