Although probably the most innovative compact and interesting looking guitar stand, after working with it for a year I have to give it a thumbs down. Fender Strats because of their contoured body will not sit in the stand as well as a guitar with an even lower back like a Les Paul so that one has to take a few more seconds to carefully turn the Strat if you want it to be optimally supported. Your guitar will also sit in the stand with a strong leaning-back angle which you may not like and also may present you with the uncomfortable feeling of neck vulnerability. The stand is easy to accidentally step on when its empty if your not keeping an eye out for it. If you do that, the back leg(s) will bend and you may have to disassemble it in order to bend the legs back properly like I had to. After doing that, a little while later someone else stepped on it and bend it again so that one of the legs no longer compacts. It's a cool stand but it's got too many design shortcomings for the road or anywhere in my opinion. I also feel it's overpriced. I would stay away from it. On the other hand it will fit in your guitar pouch - I'll sacrifice that luxury for more security!

I bought this stand because I wanted something that would fit in my gig bag. While it's great from a portability standpoint, it's not the most stable stand out there. You really gotta make sure that your guitar is seated properly, especially if you have a guitar with an asymmetical body like a strat.

It will not hold fender basses at all.

Also, the guitar leans very far back.

One really nice positive is that it functions superbly as a tilt back amp stand if you don't extend the arms that hold the guitar body. I've been using it as such and ended up buying the TravLite model, which is 100 x more stable and still fits in my gig bag, albeit not as compact.
This is a great idea. It's nice and compact, but it falls short of it's intended purpose.
It seems sturdy enough. Haven't had any problems.
I don't think this stand is worth the price. The TravLite model is less expensive and is miles ahead of this one. This should be less expensive.

    Easy to set up & tear down. Fits nicely in my Reunion Blues Continental Bass gig bag. I've spent over $100 trying to find the best, sturdiest stand and found what I needed with the Hercules iStand.

    great for electric guitar only

    By Cthuludawn21

    from Albany, NY

    Comments about Hercules Stands istand Electric Guitar Stand:

    I want to start off by saying that the features on this thing are amazing, It's a major breakthrough in stands. it takes a bit of force to pop the lid up, but everything slides and locks with authority. I put my Ibanez RG3ex1 on this thing and it holds solid. I would recommend this stand to anyone, especially due to its amazing portability, fitting right in the front pouch of my gigbag. So small. one small sidenote: do not buy this for your bass. I tried putting my six string monster bass on it, and it acted like a Weeble. It wobbled, but I took the bass off before it could fall down. this is a great solid stand for electric guitar, but due to it's footprint and low support height, your bass will be in peril. I hope Hercules has plans for a bass version in the future.

    Very neat idea

    Comments about Hercules Stands istand Electric Guitar Stand:

    I just got this stand for Fathers day. I think it is really a great stand for a gigging musician. The way it folds up into a disk is just a great idea. No more carrying around those long tube stands, and having them fall apart as you go.This thing will fit anywhere. And when the guitar is on the stand it really does look like it is just floating there, like a fine work of art.I mostly likley won't use this im my home, but on the road this will come along every time.Highly recommended!

    Comments about Hercules Stands istand Electric Guitar Stand:

    I lead a praise and worship choir and need a very portable setup with the smallest footprint available. I own other Hercules stands and love them, but was a bit spectacle on just how sturdy such a small stand can be. Given that I trust the Hercules name, I took a chance and I am very glad that I did. This thing sets up in no time is surprisingly sturdy. I own both the electric and acoustic models and so far they have been great. And yes, they do fit nicely into a gig bag pouch and are a great conversation piece.

        Bought this on sale and the biggest problem I have so far is I didn't get two. This fits and secures my Jaguar. I can set it up then slap or bump into my guitar and it doesn't knock over. What else you do need a stand to do? Rubber holds really well and it looks all futuristic when you pull it out. Being relatively the same price as any other guitar stand, I am more than satisfied with the hercules stand.

          I have a small recording studio and space is at a premium. With the Hercules I was able to nestle my electric and my classical guitar together in the space of one.

          Looks great, brightens up the studio and is surprisingly sturdy and well-built.

            The stand works great. Sets up in a few seconds but hides in a gig bag easily. Pull out the back legs and flip the top open and it's ready. I Sharpied "The Decepticon" on mine...Lol! What do you have to lose on this one? Electric guitars only. Nothing thicker than a Les Paul.

              Comments about Hercules Stands istand Electric Guitar Stand:

              This is NOT a one-size-fits-all stand so if you are looking for a stand for every instrument get something else. This stand is good for thin bodied electric guitars, Ukuleles, Mandolin, etc. Basses and Acoustic Guitars will NOT fit on this stand. We have 2 of them in our lesson studios. When the proper instrument is on it, it works as advertised. It breaks down small and flat for transport which is a nice touch. Don't forget to pull out the legs in the back (Directions are on the bottom).

                I love this stand. I got it for a steal, thinking I'd only be wasting a little bit if it were a bad product, but it is phenomenal. I have two other guitar stands, and the only criticism I can proffer pertaining to this one is that it wobbles VERY SLIGHTLY. I can imagine this would be a concern for the gigging guitarist whose gig involves a lot of movement on stage, but other than that, the product is flawless.

                Other than when on a carpeted floor, I can't complain at all about this stand. I can't say for sure that I would trust it when gigging, but that's not why I bought it. The base is quite hefty, so you need not worry about it rocking around, but the retractable legs don't do well on carpet.

                On the other hand, this thing is EXTREMELY portable, it works GREAT on hard flooring, and it looks really cool. It's like a transformer toy for a musician. I am pleased with my purchase.

                    Comments about Hercules Stands istand Electric Guitar Stand:

                    Very well thought out design.

                    It might weigh a gig bag down a little for those that take public transit to gigs, but the weight is what keeps it stable. It has good grips on electric guitars and basses, but if your band has acrobatics involved I would consider something more encompassing. A hard side swipe would most likely knock your guitar over...

                    Excellent for bedroom or home recording use; massive space saver.

                    Doubtful that strong vibrations like a drum and bass duo would knock your guitar over, but a proper wall mount or a stand with neck support is of course ideal for longer storage.

                    This version will not fit an acoustic or semi-hollow, though there is one available last time I checked. Looks very durable. (And futuristically cool.)

                        Bought as gifts for Hollywood music guy! He loved the product! Terms of shipping misunderstood, but was promptly taken care of. I would recommend "Musciansfrien Friends"to every one! They really care that you are a satisfied customer!!
