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:

        I was never much of a fan of these type stands, that hold by the neck, but after I got my hands on a Gibson Thunderbird, the odd shape posed issues with a regular stand. I knew I had to get one of these and I was pleasantly surprised just how sturdy this stand is. Since its holds the bass high on the neck your bass can't slide and topple over. Now I'm sold, I really dig this stand because the Jazz bass also sits funny on the other types of stands also. Very glad I got this and would def recommend.

          Comments about Hercules Stands Single Guitar Stand with Folding Yoke:

          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.

                  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.
