I have some very expensive custom built guitars; I'm not going to display then on anything less than THE BEST stand. I've tried many brands; this is all I buy now.
I have several models of Hercules guitar stands for my collection. No others can compare for safety, ease of use, dependability - best value for your stand money. Of all the stands, this 402B is still my fave because of its portability. So compact; can go anywhere, inside most anything. And they work great - holds the guitar safely & balanced. I have several of this model & am ordering a couple more just because I'm taking more guitars to a gig now. These are going inside my car trunk with the spare tire - they're that compact.
They work & pack well. THE top quality in a guitar stand.
Frankly, I'd pay twice as much for a Hercules stand. I've given all my other stands away & replaced with Hercules.

I would buy it again (and really like it) if the above issues were resolved.
I was surprised that this had so many great reviews. I have two major problems with it. These coupld be resolved in a new stand should hercules choose to revise the design.

1.The foam pad at the top extands behind the vertical support. If you have a strap on your guitar or bass it will usually dangle behind that foam pad. When you lift your guitar, the strap catches on the foam pad and lifts up the entire stand! It happens to me about 90% of the time. I find it annoying.

2. The arms that hold the guitar are padded - thats good. But there are two pins on the arms that are way too short - I cant ever tell if the guitar is seated properly in the arms. I am usually afraid that the guitar is going to slide back into the unpadded area.

If you dont need the portability - definitely go for something more - even the cheapo A Frames are better than this.

Excellent and Versatile Stand

By mwsloan

from Northern California

Comments about Hercules Stands GS402B Mini Electric Guitar and Bass Guitar Stand:

I liked the first one I got so much that I purchased a second. These stands are well-built and very stable. I use them for my electric guitar, banjo and mandolin and have never had an instrument fall. Compact when folded (but, sometimes hard to fold). These are pricey, but worth the extra cost.

Great little stand

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hercules Stands GS402B Mini Electric Guitar and Bass Guitar Stand:

I've been playing guitar for 42 years; have had my share of stands... This is my favorite of them all. Cons: hard to close when new; the top cushion can come off when you've (ab)used it for a few years; and yes you CAN knock it over if you try hard enough. Pros: extremely sturdy build; small; you can throw yer guitar in on a dark stage...I've got six of these and am about to buy some more.

VERY,VERY nice!!

By Benjamin Moon

from Mars

Comments about Hercules Stands GS402B Mini Electric Guitar and Bass Guitar Stand:

Buy the the stand and be happier.
It works very well for electric guitars. Doesn't hold acoustics obviously but all of my electrics are held perfectly. It also surprised me how stable it was. Of course if ya drop kick your guitar it's gonna fall. It is very compact when folded up. It fits in my guitar cases and that's very handy.
Made of metal and feels very sturdy.
24 bucks for a very good stand.

Hercules Mini Stand

By mirv

from Ohio

Comments about Hercules Stands GS402B Mini Electric Guitar and Bass Guitar Stand:

Nice, solid stand for most guitars. Not so great for offset solid body guitars. My Jaguar wants to tip to the left. So I moved the backrest one bolt to the left and bolted the bottom right rest under the tripod leg. Works great now.

BAD FOR BASS

By Scott

from Houston, TX

See all my reviews

Comments about Hercules Stands GS402B Mini Electric Guitar and Bass Guitar Stand:

If you play bass this stand is not for you. I even asked MF if this stand is capable of holding a bass guitar and there answer was "yes". WRONG....It simply will not hold a bass. At least not a Fender Jazz. However for guitar it does work. This will be returned tomorrow.

Comments about Hercules Stands GS402B Mini Electric Guitar and Bass Guitar Stand:

I don't know what the guy a few reviews down was doing with it but this stand held my jazz bass perfectly. The parts are very high-quality and are all metal. All in all a great stand for the price

Gig Stand

By stratocasterjoe

from guilford, CT

Comments about Hercules Stands GS402B Mini Electric Guitar and Bass Guitar Stand:

Very well made and folds nicely. A little larger that cheaper stands but it is worth it as it is much sturdier. I'm glad I bought it and feel safe using it. I felt it was worth the extra bucks.

Basses fit fine.

Comments about Hercules Stands GS402B Mini Electric Guitar and Bass Guitar Stand:

While preparing to order number 3 hercules mini stand, had to read reviews. I'm ordering the third one for my son who plays bass, the reason is so I can get mine back. The day I received my second stand he laid claim to it, so guess what he is getting for his birthday. His bass is a long neck Ibanez and it has never been a problem for this stand. Great stand great price great quality.
