Hercules DS561B Stand Oct 17, 2010
By Philip W. Scofield
This stand is by far the best one I've found for the money. It's really solidly built, and has padding in all the right spots. It also accommodates Bass Clarinets with either low Eb or the low C extension. The bottom part that the bell rests on is made of synthetic rubber material that grips the instrument, but does not scratch the instrument. The top section is much wider than it needs to be though, so it's a good idea to rest your bass clarinet on the bell... not on the end peg. This makes it less likely to move around. It also fits Bassoons and some Alto Clarinets.

Hercules Bassoon/Bass Clarinet Stand Jan 18, 2012
I am a percussionist and have been all my life. But I have also always loved the bassoon. It is the most beautiful instrument in the orchestra. Three months ago I began lessons on the bassoon. I am certain I have done things in my life that were more difficult; I just can't remember right off what they were. At any rate, one learns rather quickly that a stand is indispensable. After checking local and web vendors, I decided to purchase this stand, primarily for the cost. I found it is quite easy to spend considerably more for this item. It works well for my bassoon, however it is now holding my wife's bass clarinet at the community theater where we are currently presenting "Oliver". I recommend this stand for its security, ease of handling, and cost.
Having had an opportunity to use the stand for awhile, I must revise my initial review. One day I found my instrument on the floor. It had fallen from the stand because the rubber underneath the cup which holds the base of the bassoon had cracked, causing the cup to collapse and allowing the bassoon to slip out of the cup and hit the floor. The instrument was not damaged. I contacted Hercules and was sent a new cup. That's all well and good, but I expect the same failure will recur. My ingenious father-in-law had a better solution; he crafted a replacement from a sink plunger. No mishaps since then.

Excellent Bassoon Stand Jan 30, 2011
By David J. Ross
The Hercules is an excellent bassoon stand. It's rugged, extremely stable, and compact. I've even used it in a pinch for contrabassoon while in the opera pit. It's the best I've seen.

Go Hercules! Dec 13, 2011
The Hercules is well-made, strong, and solid - it can support a wood bassoon with no trouble. The legs fold in for easy travel. The vertical support is adjustable, as is the length of the leg that holds the support cup for the base. We are very happy with the price and quality. My daughter's bassoon teacher was also very impressed, and she has seen many stands.

Nice Stand Dec 06, 2011
Got this for my wife for her Bassoon. You don't want to place a $4000 + instrument on the ground when your not using it, you also don't want to lean it on the side of your chair. This stand is fully adjustable and easy to carry. It offers a sturdy, Safe place to hold your investment.
