I’m a tuba veteran and want others to enjoy this wonderful instrument as I have most of my life. Let’s face it, there are challenges that come along with playing the tuba. It’s large, heavy and cumbersome. Not everyone can handle it, that is why I chose to develop this stand. It is my personal goal to provide an affordable play-off-of tuba stand that allows anyone to play regardless of age, ability or physical limitation.
Young players will learn the basics, minus the horrible effects of wrestling with the weight of the tuba. Older players will continue to play longer, even if father time reduces their physical strength to hold on to the tuba. All players, from elementary school through college and beyond, will look sharp and play better with proper posture. “The Hug” will adjust to any player and any tuba and euphonium.
Band Directors will benefit in many ways. Carrying the tuba for beginner try outs will now be easier with the mobility of the stand on wheels. Our front-locking wheel will secure the mobility when applied. Tuba protection will reduce that dent repair bill and keep the tubas looking sharp. With our new tuba covers the tubas can be left on the stand. We have six variations of “The Hug” tuba stand that fit all full- size tubas, ¾ tubas and Euphoniums. We also have two available attachments: a stand-and-play, plus a tuba-rest.
Our “Hug” tuba stand is available on our website, through our friends at Guitar Center and their subsidiaries, Music and Arts, Musicians Friend, Woodwind & Brasswind, as well as through local music stores. Check out our website to learn more and watch video!
Give your Tuba a “HUG”!
