Hi gang. I've been using 'Off the Wall' hangers http://www.fretbase.com/gear/1749-off-t ... all-hanger for years, but have often wondered if anyone is using a wall hanger that better accomodates the Drop D tuner on my Super J? While the 'Off the Wall' hangers work great for ABII's / Super J's w/o drop d tuners and other basses, the 'Off the Wall' hanger contacts the Drop D tuner on my Super J. It seems that if a wall hanger was deeper from front to back that it may better accomodate the Drop D tuner ...

Can't you flip the lever down to hang the bass? Mark

[quote="guitarded":2bveemu3]Can't you flip the lever down to hang the bass? Mark[/quote:2bveemu3] the drop d tuner stop still contacts and sits on the back of the hanger arm (if that makes any sense). so that's why i'm wondering if a deeper hanger may work better, if anyone even makes one...

I checked out the link. I see what you mean. I have all of my guitars hanging on String Swing hangers. The hanger part sticks straight out. https://www.stringswing.com/retailhome.php Mark

I have an ABII with a drop tuner. I use K&M guitar mounts in my house for all of my basses. Haven't run into a guitar yet that wouldn't work with them. [url:1liep0ig]http://accessories.musiciansfriend.com/product/KM-Guitar-Wall-Mount?sku=450472[/url:1liep0ig]

I have an Afterburner I 5 with Hipshot on the way (well, April/May). Does anyone know if it'll work with this Hercules stand? [img:10lloln0]http://www.astrings.co.uk/images/hercules_gs432bweb.jpg[/img:10lloln0]

It's more the shape of the SJ headstock that puts the Drop D at an odd angle.

I use a hercules wall mount on my combustion, its the same hanger as the tripod, and it works, but the fold down arms on closing touch the string hold down a bit.

The problem is not the hanger, but the fact that the stand is too low, so the body of the bass hits the tripod-legs (it is a quite long instrument, and the Herc stands are not really optimised for basses of this lenght). I have the double-version of the stand, maybe the triple is better. Anyways, I prefer a normal floor stand for my bass. :)

On it, the body of the bass is supposed to rest against the two front legs of the stand. It's got sufficient length for my AB-II, without a de-tuner. These don't come in double/triple versions, though. [img:3mif1f0s]http://www.herculesstands.com/Images/guitar/GS415BMain.jpg[/img:3mif1f0s]

I have the 3-bass version of the Hercules stand and have no problem with any of my Dingwall basses hitting the tripod bottom. None of my basses have Hipshot D-tuners, so I cannot comment on how well the Hercules stands would work in that situation.
