The stand in the pictures is a Fox contrabassoon stand, slightly modified to protect the bottom of the sarrusophone. The Fox stand is made for a contrabassoon having a substantial peg on the bottom. The sarrusophone has only a small metal knob, so I've modified the peg cup by inserting (and taping in place) a short length of foam tubing to protect the bottom of the instrument. Apart from the peg cup, the stand functions well, and is superior to everything else I've seen.
