I have played bassbone in big bands with some reallly tough section mates. Some of them placed their music stand very low. And then had their slides over the stands.
I never figured, how they could read their parts with their right fist jogging speedily forth and back just above the focal point of their crossed eyesights. So I set my stand high and slided below it.
Our trombonist bandleader never complained that.
My problem with seating mostly was with the saxes not allowing for my low B naturals. But sending one of them into coma with a ruptured spine was a good opener for negotiations.
