If you have enough room (and really good eyesight) to have it in front of you as you play, with plenty of clearance for the music stand, that seems the best spot for it. I'd still keep a foot on it though.
Otherwise is a great Stand!
I recommend HAMILTON Stand, I bought stand for 2 Saxophone and they have it for 1 saxophone too.
There are 2 problems with this:
1 - The stand does not work on any surface except a hard surface and even on a hard surface, I'm worried. On any carpet, this is very unstable. The problem are the two little feet that you can see next to the soprano pegs. They are simply too short to be stable. Turns out much of the weight of a sax is on those two little feet. So on a carpet especially, the feet are pushed downward and the balance tips the saxes back and over. Exactly what you don't want to happen.
2 - The cushioned areas on the stand for the alto/tenor spots don't work well for tenor. The bottom of the bell hits the metal at the bottom of the brace. Might be correctable if you made the lower cushion (not the top "Y" cushion but the second smaller cushion extended out a little. Basically the whole tenor sax is flush against that metal rail and the bottom knocks on the sax. So lay it on there very slowly because it will touch metal to metal. Over time, I'm sure this will wear off the lacquer at the minimum.
Overall, like I said, I wanted to like this stand but it didn't happen. For all you other sax players out there, move on and try something else.
I was wrong. This thing is solid and holds two horns with no problem at all. It is the perfect size, can hold two altos, two tenors or one of each. I highly recommend this. Save the money and go with this one!
