I just received my wall mount sax stands from saxco.uk. These are the the Locoparasaxo ones. They are very well built, have an adjustable bell rest, look great and secure to the wall very well. Not to mention how hip it looks having my saxes hang like art in the living room.

These are my practice horns at my girlfriends house. :)

I highly recommend them. Link provided below.

The stands are attached to the wall by three anchors screws each into quality drywall. Each anchor screw is designed to hold 75lbs for a total of 225lbs of support. I think they are safe unless I happened to live in California or some other earthquake prone area.

Your girlfriend let you hang up horns on her wall? She's a keeper! :bluewink:

My question about these is how well they fit saxes with split or LH bell keys. The String Swing wall mounted stands I use aren't the most LH/split friendly. But unlike this stand that has the rests/supports attached to a rod in front of the bell, String Swing attaches them on the left side of the bell.

Right now I have a S20 tenor, 28M, and NW I tenor hanging in my music room in the same fashion.

I've never had any issues with wall mounted stands. I think it's great to keep a few off the floor, while also keeping them easy to grab and go. I definitely could see why some people wouldn't be comfortable with the idea of them though.

You can adjust the lower support so you could find a better fit on these stands.

I like them, but too bad about the price. That's about what I pay for my horns.

For those of you who wouldn't risk hanging your sax on a wall rack, you could screw these racks to the floor just to be safe. (There should be a smiley face here if I knew how to post one).

These hang out from the wall with plenty of clearance for LH bell keys.

Here's a cheap alternative. I put up a piece of 4x8 pegboard on a wall in my office (the kind with little holes all over it). You can buy a straight "hook" peg with a little lip on the end of it. Simply hang the horn on the peg by the strap hook. Not quite as nice looking as Locoparasaxo, but I could hang 50horns for half the price of one of those.

That just wouldn't fit the decor in the living room but thanks for the tip.
