Hercules single GS414B Hanging Guitar Stand -
I purchased this stand based on several hours of research that indicated it to be a superior product. I gave it a 3.5 because, although, as of today, it is working nicely, I am concerned that if something should go wrong with it I might have a problem getting it fixed. This Hercules stand is manufactured in China and it has been my experience that the primary reason for Chinese manufacture is to cut costs sometimes at the expense of workmanship and durability. I had read reviews that mentioned a problem with the material that the handle of the adjustable height mechanism is made out of and that several folks reported that over time it had turned soft and sticky eventually leading to malfunction. I attempted to contact Hercules in order to see if this problem had been addressed but I could find no way of contacting them, following the contact link on their website took me to a dead end. Hopefully this problem has been corrected but I am concerned that I cannot contact the manufacturer.
