I use this stand to store one of Thomann's own 111E basses, and have done so for approximately three months as of writing this review. Other reviewers are correct in their assessment of its lack of stability, but the stand serves its purpose perfectly well if approached with a degree of caution. Place it in the corner of the room, check the handle at each joint is tightened frequently, and extend the endpin of your instrument as far as you feel comfortable to avoid the metal cup scratching the bass. I can imagine the stand will need replacing later rather than sooner, as it were, and unless it collapses in the near future I will likely buy another. An additional and most probably unintentional bonus feature is the fact that the rubberised 'arms' of the stand make an excellent place to hang one's bow when playing pizzicato!
