Vonk Dutch Legstand for Bassoon
This legstand is used by 90% of all bassoon players in the Netherlands, both professionals and amateurs. The Dutch Legstand holds the complete weight of the bassoon and balances perfectly so there is no weight at all on the left arm. There is still complete freedom of movement while playing. The weight is taken off the left arm by a pin and plate resting on the right thigh. The weight distribution is excellent. The leg plate is lined with soft material so it doesn't create pressure marks. Since there aren't any blood vessels along the top of the thigh, it won't put your leg to sleep. The pin and plate can be adjusted separately, so that the height and angle of the leg plate can always fit the height and preferences of the individual user. It is easy to mount, but it MUST be installed by a qualified repairman. Instructions on mounting the Legstand here.
We have some limited replacement parts available: two metal bands that become the rings around the boot joint, one screw with the larger plastic ball/grip, two screws with the smaller ball/grip, and a few regular metal screws (which probably turn the metal band into the ring). Contact us for availability or to ask about a different replacement need you may have. A nominal shipping fee may apply. Contact: email@example.com or call 434-361-1945.
