I went to the trouble of having my tech put a peg on my Yani bari. He did a fine job but I found that balancing the bari on a peg to be a problem due to the weight and length of the bell of the bari. I was forced to use my mouth to help steady the horn which was quite uncomfortable. The bass clarinet has a much shorter, lighter bell so that the balance is better, the centre of gravity is lower. I play the bari in my Hercules stand without a strap and I am very happy with this set up.
