I mostly play at my church's local youth group. We do some crazy stuff on stage (We once ended up with people swinging from the ceiling...), so I decided that I should probably get a decent guitar stand. After researching several options, the Hercules stand seemed the best route to go. I knew I needed a good stand, especially since my guitar, a BC Rich Warbeast NJ, is very pointy. I didn't want it hitting the hard concrete floor on one of it's points.
Obviously the part I like the most about it is the whole locking feature. It works great and since it automatically locks when you set your guitar on the stand, you don't have to worry about putting some sort of rubberized band across the front of the yoke.
The one thing I would change though is that it is still a little big when collapsed. The reason for this is because Hercules made this stand so that it also works for Bass guitars, so the actual stand can extend pretty high, much higher than you need for guitar. If Hercules Stands would make a separate model for Bass guitar it would allow the guitar stands to be collapsed further. Granted, this is a truly minor complaint, and it's by no means a deal-breaker. Just something I figured I would throw out there.
Besides that, I can't really find any other fault in it. It's a sturdy stand that is very easy to adjust and keeps your guitar safe. All the parts that come into contact with your guitar are well padded, and won't leave scuff marks or scratches on your guitar.
Overall, I can't recommend this stand enough. It will more than pay for itself the first time somebody trips over your guitar cable when you have it in the stand. I would gladly buy this stand again in a heartbeat. Honestly, $40 to protect your guitar from hitting the floor? Seems like a great deal to me!
With Hercules stands and here we are in the presence of high quality products. This model is excellent at all levels. Stability is never at fault and system maintenance and automatic closing of the guitar head proves safe and ingenious. No doubt this is a stand on which to base its beautiful can 6 strings, whatever its weight and shape in complete safety devices.
Finally, an investment that is not high for such security and that oh how practical side.
I use it for over 5 years, I have other brand products and stnad does not default to the reputation of Hercules, super stable, super over, super strong.
It folds completely, including the head and lodged in the interstices of a trunk of a car in zicos ballad.
The extended arm can accommodate all sizes of guitars and basses including my long scales in 35 ".
A foam reinforcement on the front legs can shim the back of the guitar without it being damaged.
RAPORT price / quality / experience = 5/5

It's big, a little heavy, but great! Very safe. I use it with my Stingray 5 and its stability is a real plus! I take the bass and files easily, without asking questions about the cable lying around, nor having to be careful not to drop the foot. A real comfort. In addition, the price seems right (25 €). I'll probably buy a second ...
