A very sturdy and stable stand. The peg is very light weight, made of wood with felt at the base. The feet are made of metal with hard plastic caps over the tips of the metal feet. The feet swing over themselves with a lock nut to tighten or to remove under the peg, attaching onto at short threaded bolt. Great value compared to most of the other heavy and sturdy English horn stands, unless you go with the simple plastic ones that fold flat.
