I bought this stand a year ago and have used it at home daily, as well as for gigs. It isn't as compact as "bag stands" and it's a bit difficult to (initially) set the friction mechanism to hold the height, it's been a great stand overall.I posted a full review of this stand, complete with pros and cons, at PartTimeMusician dot com if you're interested in knowing more.

I bought the optional travel case to go with it, and it's a good investment. The bag is solidly made and has a strap to toss it over your shoulder.
Sturdy stand that doesn't tip over easily. The fact that you can raise and lower it without having to turn a screw is a plus. I cut off the wire page holders so I could attach an accessory tray to the shelf for holding pencils and glasses. My only suggestion is that I wish it would go just a little lower (it goes plenty high). I'm short and I wear bifocals, so I need a stand that goes really low when I'm sitting in a chair.
I've owned my stand for over a year, packing it up a couple days a week to go somewhere, then setting it up at home again. It hasn't failed me yet in workmanship.
Yes, you can find a cheaper stand, but they're cheaper in quality too.

Best Compact, Transportable Music Stand

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hercules Stands BS100B Compact Music Stand:

I bot this stand from Musicians Friend about 1 1/2 years ago. I deliver music services to people with special needs and this stand has been opened, setup and closed for at least a couple thousand times and it still works great and looks great! It is very sturdy and will not collapse on you like the little 'magic' silver fold up stands. Just a great product that has never let me down!

Best Portable stand I can find

By Judith Jollett

from Cape Cod, Ma.

Comments about Hercules Stands BS100B Compact Music Stand:

10
My favorite out of the 5 I have tried. It is the sturdiest yet. I love the ease with which the stand adjusts. Just push it up or down, back or forth and it stays. Only drawback, is that it is a little heavier than the others, but it's worth it to have a stand that will support my heavy music book.
My clarinet stand is excellent, too, and I now will look at Hercules products first before anything else.

Comments about Hercules Stands BS100B Compact Music Stand:

Bought this stand a few weeks ago and am very satisfied. Its made of metal and sturdy. Its on the light side but will hold a full binder with music. It is very compact and folds easily. I recommend it for the price and value.

    Comments about Hercules Stands BS100B Compact Music Stand:

    Offers a lot of functionality at a good price. Portability w/ relative stability are it's best features - also like the page holding wires and extending desk bars.

    I have difficulty adjusting the telescoping height clutch. You have to turn the tension adjuster when it is fully collapsed, and then extend it to see if it's tight enough to stay standing. The margin between two tight and too loose is very close, and the adjuster does not "click" like the instructions say. Be careful not to impale yourself while pushing and pulling with a tight (but not tight enough) setting!

    Comments about Hercules Stands BS100B Compact Music Stand:

    I bought one of these several years ago, and loved how quick it was to set up, and how stable it was. However, despite my only using it for lightweight folders, the mechanism that tightens the base became stripped. I would still hold up the stand, but there was no height adjustment, unless I used my trusty duct tape. I wrote Hercules about getting a replacement part for the base, but after they asked me to send them a pic of what part, I never heard back again, despite repeated follow-up emails.

    I've been playing professionally a long time, and most manufacturers understand that if they take care of their customers, we'll be loyal for life, as well as recommend their products to others. However, I got no further response, but continued to use the stand, until my NYE gig Saturday night. That's when the tightening mechanism of the top part of the stand also gave out, refusing to go any higher than the base of the legs, so it's done... I'll now have to look for another stand, hopefully one that's sturdy, as well as backed by its manufacturer...

      Best Uses

        Comments about Hercules Stands BS100B Compact Music Stand:

        The stand arrived and was broken. The joint that raises and holds the stand at different heights was nonfunctioning. The Clutchless Grip did not lock into place. I returned it and got a replacement. The stand is in working order. But I am not sure if that grip device will hold for the lifetime of the stand. It is unclear if there is any warranty on the stand.

        All other qualities of the stand are similar to other solid Hercules products.

              I have been looking for a music stand that was solid and portable with a gig friendly type case. My daughter is starting to do solo gigs and the more portable (but sturdy) the gear is the better it is for her to haul it around. This works very well on all levels.

              Comments about Hercules Stands BS100B Compact Music Stand:

              This Hercules BS100B music stand is designed to unfold quickly and is ready to use in seconds. It is manufactured to be durable and looks like it will last forever, yet it's lightweight and easily transportable. The added features of extended arms and wire holders allows flexibility if you need to organize multiple pages for view. The base is secure and adjusts height easily.

              What a great product and good value!
