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 use this for bass clarinet by itself, but I also switch back and forth between bass and Bb in one group, so I have a regular clarinet peg for it as well. I have also used it for bassoon. It's easy to use and very stable. I have no trouble transporting it -- it folds up very nicely. I don't know what I'd do without it!! Other musicians have even borrowed it, and I'm lucky I got it back! If you are switching back and forth between instruments, this is a must-have, but even if you're playing just a bass clarinet or a bassoon and nothing else, it makes life a lot easier -- no more trusting your instrument to a chair if you have to lay it down or cradling it while you try to grab things or organize music. I can also keep my instrument set up for practice at home, which makes it very convenient. I bought one for my nephew's birthday, as he is a budding bass clarinetist, and now he practices more! And yes, you can leave the peg on the bass clarinet and use it! (I get asked that a lot.)

    Comments about Hercules Stands DS561B Bass Clarinet/Bassoon Stand:

    I FEEL SURE THIS WORKS WELL FOR THE ADVERTISED INSTRUMENTS, BUT I USE IT FOR AN ALTO AND A CONTRALTO ( THE 'PAPERCLIP' MODEL) CLARINET. AND FIND IT WORKS WELL FOR THEM. I WOULD GIVE A FIVE STAR RATING EXCEPT THAT ONE OF THE TWO STANDS I PURCHASED REQUIRED SOME MINOR FILING OF THE CATCH TO HAVE THE STAND WORK PERFECTLY.

        A good strong stand that sets up and packs up easily. If you play bass clarinet you need this stand. Also It has threaded holes in the short legs for instrument pegs to hold other instruments.

            Comments about Hercules Stands DS561B Bass Clarinet/Bassoon Stand:

            Used for bassoon stand in theater pit. I like the width of the upper arm. Some stands are very narrow so you have to be extra careful putting the instrument in. This stand allows for the fast but safe changes needed in a pit---and the occasional playing while still on the stand.
