I've messed around with it, and this looks like the best position, for my horn.thanks for this complete review! i suppose the lower bell support tab would have to be repositioned in order for this to work.
the hamilton looks great, but i think the op was looking for a physically small solution to go with the soprano. again, i wonder whether the k&m saxxy for alto might not work.
Twice, I started to PM you, but decided to look into to something more compact.The actual K&M curved soprano stand is not much bigger than this, and I have one I'd be happy to sell:
