Looking for a stand which will hold multiple ukes (maybe 3). The purpose would be to have them onstage when performing so you can easily switch between ukes for different songs.

I know there are hooks that will connect to a mic/sheet music stand. Maybe you could have three pointing out equidistant?

Lil rev has one that was custom made, I think -- but he puts 7 or 8 on that thing. When I perform with three ukes, I usually do 1 of two things. Three folding floor stands, i.e.: these basic Kala stands

Or one of those stands, and this string swing dual uke hanger if I am using a mic stand as well:

I have the Hercules GS432B Folding Tri Guitar Stand - holds baritones to concerts nicely. Haven't tried any sopranos.

If you can adjust the height for the shorter neck lengths, this guitar stand might work.

I built myself a stand that holds six ukes very nicely, using PVC pipe. It took me about an hour to make, and cost about $14 in materials. There are no special skills required. I don't claim credit for the idea, as I copied that from a rack I saw on the internet that was made for multiple guitars. The rack weighs virtually nothing, and yet is strong and sturdy.

I have no plans, and no measurements, and I used none. I just sized it to best fit my ukes. I have used it to hold, all at once, a soprano, two concerts and two tenors. Let me see if I can find the photos....

I haven't used one, but I think it helps when a reference to a product is accompanied by a link to that product, if a link is available.

Nice job Mailman. Not the prettiest stand on the stage perhaps but nicely compact for the number of ukes it holds and they seem well secured.

I have it, it's cheap, it's useful, easy to carry, not bulky etc. You have as well that tiny metal tongue that you can use to clip your clip-on tuner.

Great stand!! If someone wanted a more finished appearance, some flat black paint would spiff it up nicely.
