Hercules Stands celebrates their 20th anniversary with the launch of the “Saved by Hercules”campaign honoring the brand’s history of protecting instruments worldwide. For over two decades, Hercules Stands have proven to be the most trustworthy and reliable source of dependable stands for musicians, whether they are on stage, in the studio, or at home.
The “Saved by Hercules” campaign is designed to educate players on the dangers of instrument damage that can be caused by inferior stands. From falling instruments to discoloration and deterioration, the results can be devastating. Low quality stands can include materials that react with lacquer finishes. “Stand damage” is a harsh reality that many musicians unfortunately discover after it is too late. Hercules is on a mission to save instruments from this harmful fate.
As part of the campaign, Hercules will be giving away 100 of their high-quality, coveted stands to musicians whose instruments have fallen victim to stand damage, helping save them from further harm. Players are invited to share their damaged instrument story here for a chance to be “Saved by Hercules!” Hercules will be selecting winners throughout the year and sharing their stories on social media.
Hercules’ principles of ground-breaking development, refined construction and leading global function guide their design, manufacturing, marketing, sales and worldwide distribution. From the creation of their Specially Formulated Foam (SFF), that is designed to be less abrasive to an instrument’s finish, to the Auto Grip System (AGS) which protects guitars from unwanted spills, Hercules is proud to protect instruments around the globe.
