Hercules Stands

Never accidentally knock your guitar off the stand again.

The Single Guitar Stand with SFF on Legs 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. 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.

    Everyone advises you to keep your guitars in their cases unless you're playing them. Well I play all my guitars (six) every day - one after another (it's what keeps me at maximum motivation). Keeping my guitars in their cases at home would be a hassle. I will take my chances using stands.

    These seem about the most stable and well-constructed of all the stands out there. I have one of the Hercules seven-guitar racks in my home studio, but like to play several of my collection unplugged when I'm lying in bed just after the alarm goes off and also at night lying in bed just before I go to sleep. I try not to look at my hands, so as to develop better proprioception (hand-eye-mind coordination). I use six of these stands along the foot of the king bed (I also keep my bass on a stand). My wife thinks I'm a fanatical nut, but since I put up with her eccentric hobbies, she tolerates it - we have an agreement.

    I can't find any fault with these stands. You can find cheaper ones and you can find more portable ones, but these are the ones I would most trust my lovely guitars in (aside from the stationary rack). The price is reasonable to me for having a secure place to keep my guitars ready to practice on. We have cats, and they do occasionally do that thing where they rub their fur up against them, but these are secure enough to not topple over for anything short of a big dog running into it (actually, if we had dogs, I'd be more protective, since I know dogs will chew on stuff). Cheers.

    I've had this stand for probably 3-4 years and I love the design for my Explorer, Flying V and acoustics. But now in the last year the rubberized plastic on the height adjustment grip has become this sticky mess. It's not from anything that I put on it chemical wise it's just decomposing I guess. I'm worried that what ever it is will stick to my hands and get on my guitar finish. Tried to contact customer support at the company website but it just referes you to the distributor in your area. I'm posting here because I bought it from MF. For what I paid for this stand I wouldn't expect the material to do this, I have old metal fold up stands that are +30 years old and the rubber is a little dry but never sticky...really dissapointed. Beware!

                This works great for guitars with Gibson style headstocks, but Fender, g&l and a few others have the gripping point at an angle, wearing down the rubber on the left side. would probably work better with nylon grips. Hope my guitar doesn't fall through one of these nights.

                Forget cheap stands you will just end up throwing them out. The guitar is supported only by the neck. So it can hold any style from acoustic to crazy bc rich designs. The bases legs are nice and thick heavy tube metal. This weight gives it a really low center of gravity. So this will not fall over unless you push it over. After loving my first one I bought two more. Great product can't recommend it enough.

                Great Stand!

                from Elma, Washington

                Comments about Hercules Stands Single Guitar Stand with SFF on Legs:

                The design of the Hercules single guitar stand holds the guitar at the neck. Bearing the weight at the top has freed me from worrying about the cable connection at the base of my guitar which almost always got tangled up with my old stand and at times allowed the guitar to drop to the floor. So I for one am sticking with the Herc stand. No problems for the last 3 weeks of use. Yeah!
                Very easy to adjust height to accomodate any size guitar. The padding is great. No more guitar body sound when placing my acoustic electric on the stand.

                Nice, beefy stand

                By David Carwile

                from virginia

                Comments about Hercules Stands Single Guitar Stand with SFF on Legs:

                This is a much sturdier, better thought out design the the one made by Ultimate (which I bought this one to replace - and worth the few extra dollars. I only knocked off one point for price and because the leg lock knob doesn't seem to have a detent like the ones on the yoke height adjuster, so it's hard to tell when it's tight enough.
                I like the auto-grab thingy, and the legs fold down in such a way that they just can't collapse, even if the knob isn't tight enough. Detents for the pin in the yoke height adjuster are a plus.
                Seems very well built.
                A little pricey, but I'd rather not have my bass hit the floor over a few bucks.

                Best stand on the market

                By FrankK

                from Midwest.

                Comments about Hercules Stands Single Guitar Stand with SFF on Legs:

                I have looked at every stand available in the marketplace and, in my opinion, this is the best available.The construction is sturdy. The stand is adjustable to compesate for different guitars lengths. And the locking mechanism works very well. This is just a great design that has been well executed.My only issue with this stand is that I would prefer it be all black. I'm not a big fan of the yellow painted piece on the stand. But the functional aspects of the product more than make up for that.
