Who can tell me where to get a stand that's good for an ABII? All the ones I have want to lean over, and they don't give me a sense of confidence when I put my Baby down on breaks. Thanks!

I like the Hercules stands (and the GS414B in particular): [url:xvmhdlvr]http://www.herculesstands.com/guitars/GS414B.html[/url:xvmhdlvr] I know Guitar Center, Musicians Friend, and Amazon all carry them.

My guitarist has the Hercules GS432B triple stand and it's rock solid, regardless of whether its loaded with 1, 2, or 3 instruments. I need to pick up one of their stands for my baby too.

I have used the Hercules triple stand (Hercules GS432B?) for several years on all my gigs. Very solid stand, and it has a great system for locking in the bass when you put in in the yoke and releasing the bass when you pull it out. Definitely would recommend this one if you gig with more than one axe. Good luck.

Thanks for the replies. Those Hercules stands look good, and are well-reviewed on Amazon as well. I think I will go for the triple, since I do play with multiples a good bit, plus if my guitarist behaves herself I may let her use it as well to save stage space.

Does anyone have experience with the GS415B which has the foldable yolk? I was wondering if the folding yolk will stand up to constant gigging.

I just saw that the folding yoke model doesn't seem to have foam all the way down the legs like other models.

I am using the Hercules GS412B model, which doesn't have the foam on the legs, but instead has a folding backrest thingy that comes out. I think it was meant for acoustic guitars, but it works well for bass too. It is good for the offset Jazz body shape on the SJ5. My only problems with them have been that my cat likes to chew on the foam bits! They are otherwise sturdy and do the job well.

Yes, it's absolutely fine, the GS415B folds up nice and compact with no sticking-out bits, the height of the yoke is adjustable to fit your bass (and whether or not you leave the jack plugged in), the yoke clamp thing is foolproof both ways, and the bass can't be knocked off the stand - you have to lift it straight up (of course, if someone trips and stumbles bodily into the stand then the whole thing will keel over, like with every other stand).

Just to mix it up some more, I use the Hercules mini stand GS402B for pub gigs, its small and fits into the side pocket of my leads bag and holds my ABII or Combustion nicely, and i also have the GS432B it holds my 2 Dingwalls and my cheap 4 string (in case another bass player gets called up).

I'm starting with the GS432B (already on its way), and will keep the 402 in mind for something small. I like the idea of the backup bass so nobody touches your Dingwalls. Clever.

Hamilton also makes a hanging stand that works the same way. The difference is that it folds up smaller than anything else I've seen. I've had two for years. http://www.amazon.com/Hamilton-Hanging- ... 768&sr=8-1

I also have an Ultimate hanging stand, which isn't bad either but I like the Hamiltons better.

I use Ultimate GS100 stands, love them for stability and ease of transportation. The ABZ is currently on an Hercules GS414B stand, but that one stays at home since it doesn't fold up as nicely and respectable like as the Ultimate. Both work great with all my basses.

My GS432B 3-bass Hercules stand arrived, and it is HEAVY, and STURDY. It is very stable, as several of you said earlier, with 1,2, or 3 basses. Thanks for the advice, guys. Perfect for me. It also fits perfectly in my Bose pole-speaker bag, which I happen to have an extra one of.
