In bell trombone stand

Does anyone make a good in bell stand for small bore like a Yamaha 697Z?

I like the Hercules in-bore stand. Beats carrying a stand separately; however, it does add a little weight to your case. After playing and before putting the horn up, I take it out. I've found it picks up condensation from the warm bell and I had one that had serious rust problems. It's replacement is doing just fine. Here's a link to Hercules: ... /trombone/

I've yet to use one that I felt comfortable using with anything more support stantial than a pbone myself. I've only tried the Hercules though so it's possible there's something I don't know about

I can tell you one to avoid: the K&M in-bell. Mine broke and could not be fixed. Most K&M stands are really good, but this one isn't.

Hercules is probably the only other game for an in-bell. I know somebody who uses one and likes it.

I use a regular stand. I have the K&M 14980 and it works pretty well. The real top of the line is the K&M 14990, which is even good for a bass trombone. All NOT in-bell.
