The On-Stage GS6000 is designed for small stringed instruments like ukulele, mandolin, fiddle, and dulcimer. Full size stands are simply too large for many folk and travel instruments, and their weight often exceeds that of the instruments themselves. At only 8.5 x 3.5 inches when folded, the GS6000B easily fits into backpacks and gig bags, and weighing only .25 pounds, it preserves the unique portability of these instruments. Rubber padding on all contact points protects your instrument's finish and provides a slip-free cradle. Rigid plastic construction keeps weight down while a proven A-frame design ensures stability. Compact and supremely portable, the GS6000 is the ideal folk instrument stand.
