Why buy a ukulele stand?

Stands are a basic accessory for any musical instrument. They serve two main purposes: protection and convenience. Without a stand, you may be forced to put your ukulele on the floor (where it might get stepped on), a desk (where it might get knocked around), or in the garbage (where it will never be seen again). Storing your ukulele in a steady stand will protect it from accidental damage. Even if you have a carrying case where you could store the uke, having to constantly put it in and take it out will likely cause you to play less often. Having the ukulele within arms reach will encourage you to grab it and jam all the time. A stand will keep your uke safe, in easy reach, and in full view for showing off.
