The HUG, by Tuba Essentials, is an innovative stand for tuba.

The Hug adjustable tuba stand is designed to allow the musician to sit at the instrument without having to carry the weight of the instrument.  Making it significantly easier to manage and play! The perfect situation for someone who may not otherwise be able to play the tuba, to easily experience the joy of playing this large and otherwise cumbersome


By addressing how the instrument is handled, the player does not need to worry about balancing, holding, or dropping the tuba, but rather focus on playing. The Hug tuba stand is designed to fit full-size and 3/4 tubas and is adjustable to fit players of any height.

The safety-coated arms are spring-loaded, to easily insert and remove the instrument from the stand, but allow a firm grip to prevent the instrument from moving while in the stand. The Hug stand can be adjusted for playing in both sitting and standing positions, while the non-marring wheels and locking brake front wheel allow easy movement and secure stationary position when needed.

Each Hug instrument stand is designed to fit certain model instruments. Please specify what sixe and what side your mouthpipe (Leadpipe) is on when ordering.  To determine which stand you need, look at the instrument from the musician’s playing perspective, and whether the mouthpiece is on the right or left side of the bell. 




  • Fits full-size or 3/4 tuba models.
  • Helps ensure proper posture leading to improved playing performance
  • Easy mobility of the instrument in the stand with three non-marring 4" wheels with  250 lb. capacity
  • Rotating front wheel with lock allows infinite positioning possibilities and secure lock-in-place setting
  • Infinite height adjustment for precise, comfortable mouthpiece placement for the player
  • The instrument can be held in the stand for playing or at rest
