The link shows nothing special, brings me to the beginning of the general site.

Are you speaking of wall stands?

I don’t think that OP was talking of storing reeds

:)

A friend with lots of horns just told me that he has bought an Ikea PAX and on each shelf he puts 6 altos (alternated verticallly) or 4 tenors ( horizontally). He has a couple of hundreds of wind and string instruments.

There are lots of options from spartan & functional to fancy & expensive .



CASES! As in title of thread, looking for a stand for saxes in the cases.

It was not at all clear to me.

Let me be more specific.....

A rack/stand for saxophones in their CASES, that allows me to store them safely vertically, so I get floorspace back (Vs them all lying on the floor).

There was a thread here not all that long ago by someone who showed how he was using an old baby changer for storing horn cases, leaving one open on the top for drying -- but of course, that was horizontal storage, which doesn't meet the vertical requirement. ;)

If you're handy at all, it seems like you could build something a lot cheaper than the $400 rack in the link shown previously, although maybe it wouldn't look particularly good.

I am handy in many ways but detailed woodwork ain't my forte.

I have been looking at golf club bag storage racks and thinking about taking out the smaller bins (if possible) but they are just a wisker too narrow for what i want to put in it.
Will look at IKEA as i like the idea above about being able to put things on top flat.

I have several saxophones and clarinets at home. I keep them on shelves in my office closet (a room designed as a bedroom with a wall-closet with sliding doors). I had a closet-guy build the shelving-system to accommodate my gun-safe and instruments. I never considered a stand-alone instrument-case storage rack, but the one shown in this thread was interesting - for someone who has the floor-space for it. DAVE

Ikea has a mounting service. Quick easy and relatively cheap. The advantage of a closed cabinet (which you can progrm precisely before hand in its composition) is that you will keep away dust. I don’t know where you live but anything stored flat in open shelving (I have things like that) where I live will get quickly very dusty.

We have a large Pax with sliding doors and everything inside isn’t dusty.

Sorry this is sideways. Can't seem to figure how to fix.

Got tired of looking at expensive stuff. Cost about $125. and 3 hours of time.

Holds all of my clarinet 'stuff' as well as my sax 'stuff'.

Works for me anyways. Hope it can spark some ideas.
