Re: Resoldering posts
Yes I know what you mean about the Bari stands. I prefer the sound of Baritones to low B flat, so most of mine save one don't have the low A. Consequently I find I have to move the lower support "U" shaped arm up quite a bit to properly support the horns.
Best of luck on your repair job. Once you become comfortable and somewhat confident in tackling these types of repairs, you will loath taking your horns to be worked on by anyone else!
