The bulk of the musical talk
My trusty Wenger stand has never let me down. It's very heavy duty and strong. It's a good stand if you don't have to transport it everywhere because it's heavy. It stays in the corner of my room and the tuba goes on it every night.
I know they are not in vogue anymore but the Wenger Tuba Tamer Is the best IMHO. They are heavy but steady. A twister could RIP the house apart and the tamer and tuba will still be sitting there.

That was my second choice.

Who needs four valves??
How about "tuba pallet" type stands? This design seems space efficient and allows storing the tuba bell down, while limiting risk for accidental damage from tipping over. Anyone using a tuba pallet for storage? For example the tuba pallet from BBC?

I just ordered a K&M "King Size" stand for my Neptune. I had to pull the arms outward on the normal size K&M. I also put rubber padding on those arms, but it's still a stretch (no pun intended). I think the king size will do the trick.
Mary Ann, these stands are essential for risers, pits and smaller stages - anywhere you don't have space to lay the tuba flat. The Neptune is too big to set it on its bell, although some people do that with large tubas anyway.
