Robust and elegant
We don't have any other cello stands to compare this one with, but it is hard for us to imagine one that is more elegant, robust and easy to use. The tripod opens out and the whole frame is strong enough for the task, without being overly heavy. The spring-loaded adjustment pin release at the back is very solid and the upper part of the column clicks into one of many positions. The cello body rests on the foam-covered front legs and its scroll sits in a pair of smaller foam-covered arms, which are spring-loaded and close under the weight of the instrument, causing two other padded pieces to wrap around the neck of the cello, securing it further. There's nothing overly fussy or extraneous. The colour choices, are black, black and black, all with a little slightly less than glossy lemon yellow. We like this - it has that stage-hand black top-to-bottom aesthetic, but the lemon touch steers it away from dull industrial or overly-cultivated all-blackness. I guess the foam pieces are PVA. They are firm and non-tacky. Cheaper, softer, polyurethane foam would work for a while, but after a decade or two would crumble and eventually become a tacky mess. I expect this foam will become harder in the decades to come, but will still work perfectly well. The products of good industrial design typically spend most of their lives doing their jobs quietly and reliably, not causing any distraction - and ideally being pleasant to view and handle. Our DS580B will do this, I am sure, but I wanted to give it a moment of public praise, for the interest of cello players and those interested in design.
