|Dear Sirs, Rich Freeze here from Plymouth, WI. I'm a member of the Banjo Hangout Website where we have over 90.000 members. A lot of the members are looking into someone Who's making a Stand Up Performance Stand for Banjo players. Just similar to guitar Players that have a walk up stand to play their guitars. I heard you might be considering producing something that would work for Banjo Players. There is a nitch out there. my e-mail address is email@example.com Thank You for your Support.|

Rich: This might be worthy of a Hangout topic, so that people can chime in? I suspect that bluegrass banjo players (resonator banjos) would want the stand more, because of the tradition that performers play while standing. This is much less of an issue for old-time.

Coming in very late: COVID-19 days have given me lots of time to practice and that banjo gets heavier every day. After trying several ideas that just didn't work I finally sucked it up and ordered a K&M acoustic guitar performer walk-up stand. Crazy expensive but it does hold the banjo and takes all the weight completely off. Sorry I lost so many years without it. I messaged Gracie before buying this one but got no response.
I posted a photo yesterday. (The comments are entertaining. Some people lost their minds and started yelling at me about physics in capital letters despite the photo showing the thing working just fine.) Solved the problem, makes me happy, and increased my practice time.

@orchardcity Our music stores are still closed here so I ordered it from Sweetwater. "K&M Performer Walk Up Guitar Stand - Acoustic". (Note that there is also an electric model with body brackets that don't open as wide.)
