Mounting instructions Alto & Tenor Saxophone stand Soul Prop.
First, please check if the bell of your saxophone fits properly into the padded fork. As it is right now it will fit most alto's and tenors nicely, but there are always exceptions to the rule.
If it doesn’t lower into the top bracket fully, you can gently pull it apart a little by hand. Do not put in a vice or use tools on it since that could damage the stand.
Furthermore you should decide how you want your instrument to ‘sit’ in it. You could hold it up in front of the wall with your instrument in it in the preferred position, have someone else mark the holes and mount the stand accordingly.
The bow support is adjustable to keep it from interfering with keys or protection brackets of course, but may also be used to slightly alter the angle of your instrument once the stand is mounted.
Especially with drywall it is of utmost importance to find a spot that offers solid footing for the screws, and has a stud or beam directly behind it. For stone walls you will have to drill holes and insert the wallplugs and screws. The little caps are to cover the screws. Put hem on the tip of your forefinger and place them over the screw’s head. Then, with a twisting movement of your finger feel for their proper position over the slot, then just push them in. Use some glue if all else fails.
If you use a cordless drill for the screws, make sure its chuck doesn’t damage the coating.
If for some reason you are not sure how or where to mount it, please contact us or get some professional help!
To keep the rubber in good shape you could occasionally put a little bit of silicone spray on a soft cloth and give it a gentle rub.
