Would that be a resting stand or a playing stand?
For resting stand I use the König & Meyer tubastand with the small bowl for the bottom bow. The arms with the U-branches have been bent inwards to confirm to the euph. In hinsight I would have invested in the heavier version with the large bowl, the one I now use for my tubas.
As I have the older K&M playing stand with the boom and the vertical U-branches for the tubas anyway, I also use it for the euph.
I put a pillow stuffed with foam between the U-branches and rest the euph on the pillow. A good way to get the triggered main tuning slide free of Mount Stomach (not as impressive as Ayers Rock, but still being there).
