Description: This passage mainly talks about direct tv login, which shows you how to choose a great guitar stand. The first thing you should look for is stability. The stand should have a nice stable base. It should have compact grip. It will be better if you can fold it up into a gig bag. The Hercules stand is recommended.
We are from strings direct, today we’re going to talk to you about what goes into making a great guitar stand and the things you might want to look out for when you’re buying your next stand, the first thing is that you need to make sure that your guitar isn’t leading up in the corner of a room.
That’s what you want to try and avoid, things like that can happen, you’ve broken the neck on your Les Paul, this is the Hercules stand, what you want to look for first of all is stability, then you will look at a good pair of strong legs and a certain amount of weight to the stand as well.
Although it is nice to have a light guitar stand, some guitar sounds can be a bit detrimental to the stand or to the safety of a guitar, because it needs a bit of weight and needs a lot of low center of gravity to ensure that that’s not going to be going anywhere.
With these particularly stands, they’ve got a nice stable base, the other fundamental thing that is good about these is their auto lock system, this is where it works with the weight of the guitar, if the guitar comes in through here, the weight pulls down, these small arms effectively lock the guitar in position.
If I can demonstrate with this acoustic guitar, hanging it on the hanger there and pulling as the guitar weight pulls down, those arms effectively lock the guitar in position, these arms are helping the safety of the guitar up in the neck position as well.
It is also very important that when you’re buying a guitar stand, the guitar stand is not only keeping your guitar safe, some of you may have an older guitar, vintage guitars have thinner finishes on them, it’s not necessary for an old guitar.
You get a lot of more modern guitars as well, if you put them on a stand, we put the standard rubber on it, it may react, however, with Hercules stands they have this specially formulated rubber, that doesn’t react, so you could be sure that when you’re sticking in guitar on here, you’re not going to get any burns or blisters or any other nice disgusting stuff, especially if it’s sitting on there for a prolonged period of time.
The guitar stands will accommodate most guitars, this stand with the corporal legs here has rubber on both the front legs which means that it’s great for something where the shape of the guitar is more or less symmetrical, so they’re going to hang freely straight on there.
They do a version as well with a t-bar, that comes out here, let me demonstrate with this, it sits like this, it means that you can put your Destroyer or Flying V on there, it’s not going to be rocking on the legs which means it will accommodate more at anything.
In this latest update from Hercules you get these rubber sleeves as well which are the same stuff, they won’t react with anything, they hook over the yoke, it means that this is multi-purpose now, it won’t only do a guitar, you can put a violin on there.
They’ve changed the squeezy grip, it’s more compact, you squeeze to remove a stand up or down, it’s nice, this uses a trigger, that is controlled by hand, this used to be the same system that was on the guitar stance, obviously it’s new.
They’re probably ideal for vocalists, another thing to consider is what space you’re going to be keeping your guitar and what you need it for, if you’re taking your guitar to a gig, something small and compact like this is probably ideal.
Taking something big and bulky might not necessarily be easy to put in the corner of a pub, if you’re on a small stage, it might take up a bit of room, whereas something small like this is perfectly adequate, it’s sturdy, it has a nice set of legs on it.
It doesn’t take up much room at all, the good thing with this one is that you can fold it up into a shoe bag, that would fit in most gig bags, here is a rundown of the quick important things to look at when you’re buying a guitar stand.
