Solid Ground Stands
 
Secure instrument stands made from beautiful hardwoods.
June 30, 2021

Whether you want to keep your instruments within easy reach at home, or you need a secure place for them onstage or in the studio, good stands are a worthwhile investment for most musicians. And while the range of available options today includes everything from tiny fold-up designs to humidified display cases, few options offer the balance of practicality, great looks, and security as the Oklahoma-made Solid Ground stands, which are available for guitars, banjos, mandolins, and ukuleles (the company also offers a wall-mount for guitars). In this video, Peghead Nation’s Teja Gerken shows several of the company’s stands.

Made from premium hardwoods, Solid Ground stands have a clever folding design that uses metal hinges and locks in place with strong neodymium magnets, providing a solid three-point stance. Standard models are made of sapele, and other wood options include cherry, walnut, maple, chechen, and bubinga. Maple or walnut accents are available, and the company also offers custom woods and design options. Solid Ground stands hold the instrument by hanging from its peghead, and guitar models are available with standard and wide yokes to accommodate common neck widths (most six-string steel-strings will fit the standard size, but 12-strings and classicals will need the wide-yoke option). Padding of the yoke and the area that touches the instrument’s back is done with leather, resulting in a non-reactive surface that’s safe for all finishes.

I had a chance to check out the stands with several guitars, banjos, and mandolins, and I found them to offer great stability and a secure hold of the instrument. While not as small as stands designed for maximum portability, Solid Ground does provide a carrying bag, and when folded, the stands could easily be taken to a gig.

Overall, Solid Ground stands are definitely worth checking out if you’ve been looking for an alternative to common metal or plastic stands to keep your instrument safe!

SPECS: Folding instrument stands for guitar, mandolin, banjo, or ukulele. Available in sapele, cherry, walnut, maple, chechen, and bubinga, as well as custom options. Includes carrying case. Made in USA. $299–$549. Solidgroundstands.com.
