OVERVIEW

As stable as stands twice the price.

The Hercules DS561B is an L-shaped stand for use with either a bass clarinet or bassoon. The yoke securely cradles the upper joint while a rest attached to the base holds the bell bow or an extended endpin. The yoke can be adjusted via a positioning lever to a height providing maximum stability and preventing contact with keys. For expansion purposes the stand's base features a peg hole perfect for a Hercules instrument peg. The pegs are available for Bb clarinet or other instruments and are sold separately.

    Comments about Hercules Stands DS561B Bass Clarinet/Bassoon Stand:

    I have Hercules stands for multiple brass and woodwind instruments. They are very well-made and ingeniously designed for maximum stability, portability, and instrument protection as well as versatility: the bass clarinet stand, like others, features sockets to accommodate two pegs for supporting smaller instruments (e.g. a b-flat clarinet).. Highly recommended.

          Comments about Hercules Stands DS561B Bass Clarinet/Bassoon Stand:

          This stand is so helpful to hold my bassoon during band practice. It is very sturdy. It would take an extremely careless person to knock it over. I also purchased the flute holder which attaches to the base. This stand is great to hold my bassoon while I'm getting my spot set up for band practice. It is so much easier to set the bassoon on the stand and then go get my chair, stand, music, and flute. And I feel more confident placing my bassoon on the stand when I need to switch to flute than resting it on my lap or placing it on the floor.

                Needed something for pit orchestra work to hold a bass clarinet where I could get to it quickly and easily. This works very well to hold a bass clarinet, and it faces the same way you'd want to use it (mouthpiece towards you while at rest). Folds up nicely

                        It is very stable due to its all-metal construction. It allows for a lot of adjustment, so you can prop your instrument in almost any orientation. Having a stand that props my instrument up allows for all the condensation to go to the bottom instead of out of the holes. The only con for me is that carrying it (even when folded up) is not quite as convenient as I would like it to be, but that's because every time I go to rehearsal, I am carrying a bassoon, contrabassoon, contrabassoon stand, my music, and this stand.
