The Cooperstand pro mini (http://elderly.com/accessories/items/COOP-MINI.htm)stand Stan recommended is great if you want a portable stand to take with you when you play your ukulele somewhere other than where you usually keep it. I have one and it is really portable, and yet it's also stable.

I have the Cooperstand and the Kala stand. The Cooperstand is beautiful but my ukulele has tipped over in it. The kala stand isn't as nice, but truth be told -- works better. And it's way cheaper.

Aloha Sukie: Which Kala stand do you have?

I am also in need of a stand. But i was leaning towards the Cooperstand. But if, in your experience, the Kala hasn't tipped over as much as the Cooper, then i would consider the Kala. I play my ukulele while sitting on the couch, and keep the open case nearby. A stand would be much better.

Thanks

I received this ProLine adjustable stand for a Christmas present and it works very well and is inexpensive. I like it because the Ukulele hangs by the neck on a thick foam pad and the body just leans on a thick foam padded bar.

I am a fan of hanging stands, but they are not as compact as the cooperstand or the Kala. I like the Kala the most since I have left it in the rain with no damage (UWC) and it is really small and easy to assemble. I just ordered 10 to use at uke jams for all the review ukes I bring for people to play. that is my 2 cents

This (http://gadgets.boingboing.net/2008/10/15/rks-gig-stand-a-fold.html) is the one I have. If I had known they'd be so hard to find I would have bought them all. It can hold all but the smallest soprano. It folds up small enough to fit in the zipper pouch of my Tenor gig bag.

When I'm not going places, it sits within reach of me on the floor next to my desk.

I have both the Orca and Kala mini stand's both work well and are portable.
I also have the Orca clip that attaches to a music or mic stand, the ukulele hangs well from it.

I have many stands, and my favorite one--the best built for the price, and best fitting (the rubber stoppers allow adjustment for any depth instrument)-- is the Hercules. They make, in my opinion, outstanding music stands and products in general. Love it!

I have this hercules guitar stand... http://www.herculesstands.com/guitars/GS414B.html the uke bangs on the metal brace at the bottom because the instrument is too short to reach the padded legs. so i took a couple of towels and a little tape and voila.... instant uke stand for free... :--) but portable it ain't.... i like the idea of having a stand to take places and would fit in the tenor hard case. do you folks with the kanikai think it would fit in the case? i've never seen one. the cooper looks really nice and also nicely made but i don't need something that falls over with an instrument that was as pricey as my koa ana ole. took me too long to save for it and i cringe even at the thought. but having something to travel with and could fit in the case would be great. thanks for all the suggestions....

It is hard to beat this stand. but you do need to trim the stand tube to make it shorter for the neck length of the uke. A couple minutes with a hacksaw and voila, a uke stand.

For the home I made this simple one with four tool hooks around a 4x4 post on a precut round base from Home Depot:

At gigs (and sometimes at work) I use a music stand with an attached mic stand hanger I got from Mainland Ukes. Very stable.

Another vote for the Kala stand. Easy to assemble, inexpensive and small. I think it looks pretty good too - simple design.

I have several of these Kala stands: http://elderly.com/accessories/items/KUS1.htm. They work great and are inexpensive. They fold fairly flat, so I carry one in my bag with my song books. I also have one of these: http://elderly.com/accessories/items/ST20.htm, but I don't use it as much. And I have one of these hung on a lamp in the living room: http://elderly.com/accessories/items/FCH.htm. Honestly, that's the one I use the most at home (other than maybe the Kala next to the computer desk, which ALWAYS has my Flea in it).

I use the Meisel stand - I got it from Magic Fluke, when I bought my Fluke tenor.

Here's the FleaMarketMusic link :http://www.fleamarketmusic.com/store/scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=126

I also have an Orcas Uke Hanger that I put on my music stand, or on the mike stand (on those rare instances that I use one).

this stand? http://lanikaiukes.com/laniblog/accessories/usw-wood-ukulele-stand/
It would not fit in a case. the cooperstand is smaller. Cooperstands is working with case manufactures on cases that have space for their stands.

Kala has some beautiful wooden stands accented with hemp or leather. I liked the Ash and leather so much that I got mahagony and hemp!
