I've got a Hercules stand and a low A bari. The bell of the sax flares out to the right and as a result the center of mass does not fall in line with the contact points of the stand. The horn wants to roll out.
I can not use this stand this way. Should I try to bend the bell yoke to match the bell? Is there a stand that accommodates this bell geometry?
I do not want a clamp-type (Jiffy, et.al.) stand.
