Mounting Prince Tenor
First, please check if the bell of your saxophone fits properly into the upper bracket. As it is right now it will fit most tenor saxophones nicely, but there are exceptions to the rule.
If it doesn’t lower into the top bracket as far as you would like, you can pull it apart slightly and carefully by hand. Do not put in a vice or use tools on it since that could damage the stand.
The bow support is adjustable to keep it from interfering with keys or protection brackets, but may also be used to slightly alter the angle of your instrument once the stand is mounted.
This particular stand is designed to be mounted with the diamond shaped wall-plate straight up, but of course you may deviate a bit if you like. To mount it you can put in the top screw first, straighten it out with one hand, and mark the other holes and put the screws in.
Especially with drywall it is of utmost importance to find a spot that offers solid footing for the screws, and has a stud or beam directly behind it. For stone walls you will have to drill holes with a ¼ inch drill bit and insert the wallplugs and screws. The little caps are to cover the screws. Put hem on the tip of your forefinger and place them over the screw’s head. Then, with a twisting movement of your finger feel for their proper position over the slot, then just push them in. Use some glue if all else fails.
If you use a cordless drill for the screws, make sure its chuck doesn’t damage the coating.
If for some reason you are not sure how or where to mount it, please contact us or get some professional help!
To keep the rubber in good shape you could occasionally put a little bit of silicone spray on a soft cloth and give it a gentle rub.
