OVERVIEW

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.

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:)

Stand was pretty nice out of the box,and held my basses pretty well. Then they start to suck. 1) The yoke handle/lock gets gummy and your hand sticks to it, or you set it up at and outdoor gig and take 5 lbs of dirt or lawn home with you if you lay it on the ground when loading in or out 2) gummy tightening knob on the legs. 3) the lock handle snaps off on the yoke from the degrading plastic, and shoots 20 yards into the audience, the yoke collapses, and your $2000 Rick crashes onto the stage. Someone at Hercules needs to review their manufacturing process and vendors, and throw their plastics guy out the nearest window. DO NOT buy this stand until these amateurs figure out how to produce a long lasting, reliable product.

Comments about Hercules Stands Single Guitar Stand with Folding Yoke:

Had this stand for just over 3 years. The handle used to adjust the height turned gummy/sticky and today, it literally fell off when I moved the stand. This stand has been in basically the same position the entire time and has not been abused at all. I don't think it was ever knocked over. Don't buy this stand.

    Comments about Hercules Stands Single Guitar Stand with Folding Yoke:

    The negative reviews here are absolutely true. The glowing reviews are from new owners who have not experienced the breakdown just yet. I loved these stands at first myself...so I ended up buying 4 of them. ALL FOUR developed the sticky/gummy handle and ultimately the broken height adjustment and flying spring that others have described. I hate it because these looked to be really cool stands....but they are not. The Hercules guys ought to do something about all these stands failing in exactly the same way...but they have not.

      There is obviously a design flaw in the choice of materials used to make this. Once the plastic becomes sticky and breaks down this stand is worthless.

        I have two 3 guitar stands and two single stands. These are the hanging style with the clamp to adjust the height. The rubber will turn to goo over time and the clamp spring will break dropping the instrument(s) to the floor. The company does not allow direct contact but only through their dealer. The shop where I purchased my stands is no longer in business. I have not recourse.

          I have 4 of these for 4 years and bought 2 additional as gifts the first year I had mine. As others have said, the plastic adjustment grip gets a coating of sticky goo all over it and finally the adjustment does not work as the grip sticks and will not release. This has happened to all six that I have purchased. All stands were used exclusively in climate controlled studios.

          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.

          • HANDLE GET GUMMY & BREAKS

          Best Uses

            Comments about Hercules Stands Single Guitar Stand with Folding Yoke:

            ALL OF THE Hercules stands HAVE GOTTEN A STICKY GUMMY FILM all over the height adjusting handle.
            I bought 7 of these figuring it made better since, & well worth the investment not hanging HIGH $$$$ guitars on a cheap $TEN stand, assuming "you get what you pay for" would hold true.
            PROBLEM :
            The 1st one cracked after around 1 1/2 years, THANKFULLY the gummy-ness kept the spring loaded lever from launching across the floor before I noticed, dropping one of my high $$$$ guitars on the floor.
            The thin strip of plastic (maybe 1/8" thick @ best) that holds the lever in place had fatigued & broken on 3 of them as a result of the chemical breakdown in the plastic.
            SOLUTION :
            We have since wrapped 2 black plastic tie-wraps tightly around the top of each lever where the cheap little tube goes through the lever to hold them in place on all 7 of my stands BEFORE any more fail dropping a guitar. Handle still operable.
            We also have always kept a soft cotton cloth hanging in clamping mechanism to prevent a reaction between the guitars finish & their rubber pads or guitar nicks as reported in other reviews.

            THESE STANDS HAVE NEVER BEEN OUT OF THE AIR CONDITIONED HOUSE, NOR ABUSED.
            Height was adjusted for each individual guitar when purchased & then never messed with again.
            CAUTION :
            If you have any of these PLEASE check the integrity of the handles EVERY TIME you vacuum/sweep under them to hopefully prevent your ever walking into the room & seeing your beautiful Baby laying on the floor with a broken head stock or bent tuners.

            Live long & prosper,

            Comments about Hercules Stands Single Guitar Stand with Folding Yoke:

            I've owned two of these for a few years. No problems and for the most part they stay in my studio. Last week I went to adjust one and my hand almost felt like it was glued to the adjusting part of the stand because it was so sticky! I read someone else here had the same problem. Very strange because I hadn't taken it out and if it was exposed to sunlight it was from a window that has a blind that stays closed. It's a great stand otherwise. Maybe someone could figure this one out!

            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:

            The upper part of this 6-month-old stand collapsed, sending my $3800 Brian Moore C90P crashing to the ground. I found a broken piece of plastic about the size and shape of a pencil eraser next to the stand which I'm assuming was inside at one time. I'm waiting for Kaman customer service to respond to my complaint but I'll NEVER purchase another Hercules product.

            Comments about Hercules Stands Single Guitar Stand with Folding Yoke:

            I've had this stand for over 3 years and it started falling apart after a year and a half. The top yoke started malfunctioning so that the lever on one side wouldn't close to hold the guitar in place. Then the other side wouldn't close but I was still able to use it as a stand. Recently, the vertical adjustment handle that you squeeze to adjust the height broke. Without a couple of nuts and bolts to hold it together it's useless. Although I'm a weekend musician and do 50 - 60 gigs a year I take care of my gear. I thought spending more money would have given me a much higher quality stand. Save your cash and buy a simpler stand that won't fall apart like this one.
            Great features, if they would work.
            The features that made this a desirable stand did not last.
            There's no value in something that falls apart.

              I too had a years-old stand single stand deteriorate when the handle became gummy and sticky. I went to the website and contacted customer service, complained and asked about the warranty. They said it was a limited lifetime warranty. They said they were aware of the problem and fixed it at the factory. So, they emailed me a form which I had to fill out and attach pictures of the nasty handle, and within a week I had a brand new stand. The handle is now molded hard plastic. Give than a chance to fix your problem.

              I got this stand last year. It is built good, but you have to watch putting your guitar in it. It can damage your headstock. It left small indentions on each side of my guitars headstock. Just be careful when putting your guitar in it if you value it. Other than that it is good.

              I've had a number of different guitar stands over the years. . . tried them all. This one is no different. After 50 gigs the sliding mechanism broke and the yoke came all the way out when I went to grab my bass. Almost dropped it. One day someone will make a stand that actually holds up the rigors of playing out on a regular basis.

                My band has owned quite a few of the single stands and one double stand... Every one of them the sliding grip adjustment piece has broken and when that happens, unless you want to drop your guitar, you have to buy another because it is not self-fixable. I tried to contact Hercules' customer support but all they offer is an email address. I emailed them and got no response. Twice. If you are a touring band DO NOT buy these stands unless you want to keep replacing them. If its just gonna sit around your house then it's probably ok. But my guitars don't sit around the house...
