  • Customer Stories:
    “ I’m from Chile, and a week ago we had a big earthquake here, actually one of the biggest in the world history. I live in a 13 floor and in my living room I have two guitars, one acoustic in a regular stand and an electric one in Hercules stand. The earthquake was really big and everything was a mess inside my apartment, all that could felt down did, except my electric guitar that was on a Hercules stand. The Hercules was really more expensive than other one I had but now I realize why.”

  • 2015 Customer testimony:
    “ I own 2 Gibson Les Paul guitars… these guitars are notorious for having a fragile neck due to the wood used. Prior to owning a Hercules Stand I used the traditional stand that does not offer any means of locking the neck in at the top. During a sound check, one day my drummer bumped the old style stand holding my precious guitar and the guitar fell out of the stand and broke/split right at the top.. And what's worse is that this was during our sound check so I had to find a back up guitar and play an entire set on an unfamiliar guitar knowing my favorite guitar was just destroyed. Since then I have used Hercules Stands and I feel very confident that should the stand get bumped again all will be fine thanks to your great engineering with the way your stand locks at the top. Great Job guys! ”
