Clarinet stands are particularly useful for players who have to swap between Bb and A clarinets or double on other instruments. Some, such as the K & M 15228 and Pack-a-Stand fit inside the bell in most cases which makes them a very convenient option. The more traditional K & M (Konig & Meyer) wooden clarinet stand will not store in the instrument bell so it’s not so convenient, but for those of you who want one that simply looks nicer then it’s an option. There is no plastic involved either so if you are trying to avoid plastic where possible then this could be your choice.
