OVERVIEW

Holds and displays up to 6 bass, electric, or acoustic guitars with intelligent folding yoke system.

Though the GS526B Guitar Rack can be used for putting guitars on display at a store, it's also anyone with a large collection of guitars who wants one convenient place to hold them. Whether on the stage, in a studio, or in your home, this ingeniously designed rack has 6 folding yokes to hold six acoustic guitars, electric guitars, or basses-it's a great solution for a band to leave its gear in one place when not in use.

The GS52B has a folding Auto Grip System (AGS) that holds your instrument on the stand. Simply flip the AGS up into place, and when you're ready to pack up, pull out on the sleeve and fold it down. The Auto Grip System is driven by the weight of the guitar or bass. When placed in the yoke, the housing slides down, rotating the arms to secure it. When you are ready to play, lift up on your instrument and the AGS automatically releases.

Specially formulated foam rubber is used on all the contact points between the stand and your instrument so you don't have to worry about your finish getting scratched or chipped when changing out instruments.

The folding back rests flip down to support your instrument. Angle it up to adjust the position of your instrument and fold it up all the way for packing and stowing.

Another solid stand from Hercules. Over the last 10 years I've owned their single and also triple hanging guitar stands with no issues whatsoever. Strong, stable, balanced, even if you only hang one instrument and don't have others on the opposite side balancing it. As I acquired more guitars over the years and space was limited, I bought this one and so far I'm not disappointed. It's bigger/taller than it looks, like having a guitar-xmas-tree inside your house. I always needed hanging stands because of my Oddly shaped guitars (see picture).

The only disadvantage is that these stands used to be quite pricey... USED to be. With the recent price drops, I paid less for this than I did for the triple 4 years ago.

The best stand to buy for those with little space.

By Deneteus

from Houston, TX

Comments about Hercules Stands GS526B Guitar Rack with 6 Piece Folding Yokes:

This stand is probably the best value for the cost. 6 guitars are snuggly held down by Hercules designed foam covered grips that lock down with the weight of the guitar and don't mar the finish on your neck. I have 2 of these and you will have a hard time finding anything that looks as good as this, weighs almost nothing when you need to be on the move, and won't break your pocketbook. Really good for people that live in apartments where you can't drill holes in the wall. I plan on buying 2 more as soon as I get the chance.

Great product!

By m d

Comments about Hercules Stands GS526B Guitar Rack with 6 Piece Folding Yokes:

I just received my rack in the mail today and it's fantastic.I have 6 basses and they are now displayed on the rack, which has a diameter of less than 3 feet. It's about 6 feet tall. All of my basses feat neatly into the corner of my den. I love this product. It comes completed assembled so you just have to stand it up and adjust it to the height you want and you're done. It took me about 60 seconds.
Great design and space saver
Very durable and sturdy

    Comments about Hercules Stands GS526B Guitar Rack with 6 Piece Folding Yokes:

    This is a fantastic stand. We keep three concert ukes, a bass uke, and two Fender electric guitars on it. Very strong and sturdy and has a relatively small footprint. We like the Hercules self-locking auto grip feature, as it makes everything seem more secure. It arrived ready to unfold and use and exceeds our expectations. We saw a similar stand by a different company in a local store, and it didn't feel very sturdy at all. They didn't carry the Hercules version, so we were pleasantly surprised to find it here on Musician's Friend. Highly recommended.

      Comments about Hercules Stands GS526B Guitar Rack with 6 Piece Folding Yokes:

      Have put off buying this expensive of a stand for many years. However, having multiple single stands sitting around my home studio takes up too much space. Opted for the 6 guitar stand and am not disappointed. Very rugged and space saving. My grandson (one year old) "oo'd and aw'd" over our Christmas tree. When he saw the guitar stand full of guitars it was "oo and aw" all over again. I think that he thinks it is a guitar tree.

        Comments about Hercules Stands GS526B Guitar Rack with 6 Piece Folding Yokes:

        Awesome! I can finally 1. get guitars out of their cases and quickily accessible, and 2. get them off their individual stands and off my studio floor making it safer & easier to access gear stored behind them.
        The stand is solidly built and surprisingly sturdy with the legs at only 20" apart (they'll spread further, but it's not necessary).
        I have two headless Steinberger Spirit GTs that cannot hang on this stand, but I have Hercules I-Stands which are perfect for them.
        I am really glad I bought this excellent product.

        This is a great guitar stand. Perfect when you have multiple instruments and a smaller amount of space. Best part is that the guitars look awesome when displayed/stored on it. I currently have a 7 string ibanez, a strat, and ibanez bass on the bottom level and an acoustic, an epi explorer, and an epi les paul on the top level. All are held in securely and I have no worries about them every falling out of the neck holders. Definitely recommend this product to all!

            Comments about Hercules Stands GS526B Guitar Rack with 6 Piece Folding Yokes:

            I own a ProLine PLMS7 7-Guitar Folding Stand and I prefer this 6 guitar stand so much better. The 7 is OK if all your guitars are electric but they are still pretty close together and can get knocked together when removing or adding a guitar. If you have an acoustic in the mix it will take up 2 slots easily. Not an issue with this stand.

            The auto locking feature where the stand holds the instrument at the nut is great. The weight of the instrument activates the lock and just lifting the instrument up unlocks it.

            They list the radius as over 20inches but the stand is very stable even if the legs are not fuilly extended. There is a lock on the legs to hold them where ever you need them. I have mine with about a 16inch radius and it is incredibly stable.

            I bought 2 stands. I have acoustic guitars, electric guitars,resonators, lap steel and electric basses. The stand is fully adjustable to accomidate the size difference between the 30-32" small instruments as well as the 45-46" basses.

            The price seemed a bit expensive but it was worth every penny.

              I have been needing a six yoke stand for many months and I finally bought this one.Very stable. HERCULIES stands are quality like my guitars. You can trust this stand for holding/protecting your instruments while not in use. And for me with six flying V guitars it looks kinda like a Christmas Vree. Satisfied rocker love it.

              Comments about Hercules Stands GS526B Guitar Rack with 6 Piece Folding Yokes:

              I absolutely love this product I had previously owned a six guitar floor stand. My new Hercules 6 guitar stand takes up so much less room in my music room. I would recommend this product
              I love the AGS (Auto Grip Systm) holds all my different types of guitars
              I haven't owned my six guitar stand long but if its anything like my single guitar stand it will last forever
              since the tri stand is 77 dollars spending the extra money to double your storing capability is well worth it.

                I wanted to update my previous comment about not having protection in the grip system although true. I wanted to tell the people looking into this stand the following ; others have said , guitars bang together and gave it a low rating. This is also true if you do not gently place your AXES gently in the rack. I have a P/J bass, Strat, Acoustic/elec. Bass, Acoustic/elec. guitar and a Mandolin on this rack!! Also, I have this in my small studio where the leg extensions are ONLY about half way apart! It is stable! You merely have to take a few minutes adjusting the stand to accommodate "YOUR" gear to keep it sturdy! If I were using it on a gig I would want the legs fully extended for maximum support! BUT , if you are not worried about traffic around this gear? You can shorten the distance to accommodate space requirements ! Test it ! Use what works for you and your gear! Lining up the hangers accordingly with the tri-feet is the key ! Thanks Hercules and Musicians Friend! ( I have had this a while now and am happy with it ! I have also noticed Hercules and other brands are putting in disclosures about nitro-cell chem differences that may affect your gear? With my brands of Fender , Squire, Yamaha, Michael Kelly ect.. I have had no problems so you have to check this for your gear as well ! )

                  Sharing a music room with my son, a budding musician. Between us we started collecting electric and acoustic guitars, mandollins, banjos, and bass guitars. This guitar tree is a much better solution than buying another two Hercules triple stands to clean up the room and give us jamming space while we are in the process of moving to a larger room soon. We will continue to use the guitar tree, while also adding some wall mounts. Great for keeping the axes alive in the corner.

                        Only stand I buy. Others in the closet. Use for most compact, display-friendly storage of guitar collection while still having them available for play in seconds. No ridiculous straps to take on or off and stability of 6 guitars of all sizes and weights in any combination is the best.

                            If you live with limited space but like all your guitars this is very nice to have. I have 10 acoustics and play them all regularly. This "guitar tree" keeps them out of the case in an easily accessable place. The plus side to that is in a humidified room, they are all protected without the trouble of small case humidifing devices like wicks etc.

                            On the other hand, if you have small children or pets, there could be problems with the guitars getting banged into each other by someone getting too close.

                            Also, although it's a great stand, the guitars are held rather close together so one must be careful removing and replacing them on the tree to prevent accidentally bumping one guitar against another.

                            You may not want to try to move it with 6 guitars on it either.

                            Overall I like the stand. It works and it makes for an interesting piece of furniture in the living room if you are so enclined to keep it there. Recommended.

                            Holding 4 acoustics & 2 electrics. Put acoustics on the bottom tier.

                              This is the second Hercules stand I've purchased. The first one only holds two instruments, and since I now own six (two guitars, three ukuleles, and a banjolele), I decided to purchase a stand that would hold all of them. Unlike the small folding stands that tip over, this stand is extremely stable, and the instruments hang on it so there is no chance of sharp edges scratching your prized possessions. Although some people may think it's a bit pricey, basically you get what you pay for, and if you value your instruments and don't want them to get trashed when you set them on a chair and someone sits on them, then it's well worth the money.
