Hercules Stands

Never accidentally knock your guitar off the stand again.

The Single Guitar Stand with Folding Yoke features the innovative Hercules Auto Grab System (AGS) yoke: the arms turn in and up with the weight of your guitar to hold it securely and simply open up when you lift it off. Plus the yoke is designed to fold down for easy packing. The legs and all contact points with the instrument feature Specially Formulated Foam (SFF) rubber to protect your guitar's finish. Also features the Hand Grip Height Adjuster, which makes adjustments a breeze with a locking pin to secure the stand in place. A folding backrest flips down to support your guitar and back up for storage and transport.

All Hercules stands are safe for most nitrocellulose lacquer finish guitars*.

*Hercules tests for many types of nitro finish, however some guitar manufacturers change their nitro mixture often. Guitars should never be stored on a stand...always in the case.

    This is my 2nd Hercules guitar stand. I purchased my first one a couple years ago after seeing one on stage at our church. I have used it almost every day since I got it (at home and at gigs). I purchased this second one July 2013 to have an extra stand for other guitars. This new one has the folding yoke which is a very cool & unique feature of Hercules. The one concern I always had with my first Hercules stand was the yoke seemed vulnerable when traveling with it (though I never had a problem as I was careful how I packed it). On the new one the yoke folds down so it's less prone to damage (though not impervious). The folding mechanism seems pretty strong, though it's clearly not as strong as the stand without the folding feature. I'm not sure that's a problem unless you really abuse the stand (ie: throwing it in the back of the truck, piling other gear on top of it, etc). Granted, it's not the most compact guitar stand for transport, but you can't have it all. I'd rather have a strong, stable stand that's a little more bulky to transport vs. a small, compact stand that is flimsy and tips easily. All in all, I think these Hercules stands are the best guitar stands on the market, with or without the folding yoke.

    When I first acquired this stand, I thought it was great. But after having it for about 2 years, the "hand-grip height adjuster" has become very sticky and gummy.....making the stand very unpleasant to use. It's as if the stand had been left in a hot vehicle for a while which is, in my case ( no pun intended ), unlikely because it tends to move with my Martin guitar, which I would NEVER leave in a hot vehicle for even a short time. If this problem were to be solved, it would be a great product.

      Comments about Hercules Stands Single Guitar Stand with Folding Yoke:

      Once this baby folds out and you slip that acoustic, electric, or bass into the yoke and feel/hear it snap shut, you KNOW you're dealing with quality! Sturdy is an understatement as not even a stiff outdoor breeze knocks the guitar off the wide-spread tripod. The only things it doesn't protect against are theft, the elements, and that drunk couple dancing too close to the stage.

      I own three of these beauties and wouldn't trade them for ANY other similar item!

      Comments about Hercules Stands Single Guitar Stand with Folding Yoke:

      This is a great stand for Jaguars, Firebirds, and the like. Many stands have a fixed body section that allows asymmetrical guitars to tip one way or another. This stand prevents that problem.

      For my "normal" guitars, Les Paul, Tele, etc., I use the Hercules more compact "mini" stands. They can fold up to fit inside my gig "goodies" bag. The larger hanging stand is a separate carry item, especially since the yoke, though it folds down, still takes more space. Like a music stand base.

      But this stand is perfect when I'm using an off set guitar.

        Comments about Hercules Stands Single Guitar Stand with Folding Yoke:

        I've bought half a dozen of these stands over the years and love them. They are rock-solid with a good tripod base, the moving parts are well made and the materials are excellent. I have a pair at home to hold the axes when I'm practicing and our praise band uses them in the sanctuary. The locking head is worth the cost. You adjust the neck up and down for guitar or bass, hang your guitar in there and the weight locks in in place. These are great stands for any purpose!

        Comments about Hercules Stands Single Guitar Stand with Folding Yoke:

        These stands are the best designed Guitar stands in the business, however the plastic/resin grip and thumb screw rapidly deteriorated , became super sticky and cracked making the locking mechanism unusable and finally un repairable. The "Best Designed Stand" should also use the Best Nylon or Resins available that would insure a longer usable life of this expensive stand. Thank you Musicians Friend for standing behind the "Lifetime " warrantee on these stands:)

              Solid, heavy duty stand that folds up very nicely and travels well. No problem holding my Fender or Music Man or Gibson basses, yet folds up and fits into my stand bag no hassle.

                  Great product. Auto Grab System makes it easy to place and remove instrument from the stand. Wide footprint makes the stand very stable. This is my second one and I will probably buy more.

                  Comments about Hercules Stands Single Guitar Stand with Folding Yoke:

                  At first I thought that these Hercules stands were great. But I've had them for a few years, and found out that the part that holds the stand rigid broke. Also, it was covered with some kind of liquid that, like wet paint, covered my hand--and I had to use Lighter Fuel to remove it! It was a real mess. And even after several washings with soap and water--and cleaning with lighter fuel--my hands are still stick. I can't play guitar right now because I don't want to transfer this sticky stuff to it.

                  This happened to two of my stands; a third one is iffy. One of them has been a closet for a while; I didn't know that anything was wrong until I took it out tonight and found out that it had broken (by itself--I didn't put it into the closet that way) and, as I've said, the plastic handle was covered with some sticky substance.

                  Don't buy this product unless you can convince yourself that they have fixed this problem.
