Great stand at a great price! Apr 30, 2010
By R. Kolin
"Third Degree member since 1991"
This stand works as designed. It is sturdy and simple to use. I like that it folds up for easy transport. Be sure to adjust the friction mechanism located on the bottom of the main tube. Strangely, the instructions for this are on the outside of the box rather than included inside. And fortunately for me, I didn't toss the box before I found this out. The only thing I don't like is the nut that adjusts the actual music platform is not a wing nut type, so to adjust this you may need to carry a small set of pliers with you. Overall, this is a good stand at a great price. You'd be better off to pay the additional money for this rather than buy a cheapo $10 stand that wobbles and can't support a heavy music binder.

Portable and sturdy! Apr 19, 2010
By Ambrosia Lover
I need a sturdy music stand but I find the big metal ones too bulky. This foldable stand is more expensive than the flimsy $10 ones because it has a sturdy built! It does not wobble or shake when I turn my pages. The sturdiness keeps it from being knocked over too! You can also adjust the tightness of the extending rod to the right amount so it will remain in place yet it will still be easy to adjust the height simply by pulling or pushing the rod up or down. I love this stand! This is my second one already because the moving company lost my first one.

Don't let the looks fool you - this is top quality Oct 13, 2010
By Andre Antonio
Usually the wire ones look and feel flimsy and cheap, NOT THIS ONE. Hercules only makes top notch products and this although cheaper than their other models, is perfect for studio use, when I don't want the solid frames reflecting sound back into the mic. Much sturdier than it looks too.

Hercules BS100B needs fine tuning Jun 07, 2011
By Linda Darks
I was excited to get the Hercules music stand after my flimsy one made several spectacular leaps off stage. It's not easy to adjust the height on it. Perhaps the designers should have stuck to the old screw type holders instead of what they have now. I would have ordered another brand had I known about this. Unfortunately the box was recycled before I could return it so it will just have to do.

THE portable music stand Jun 17, 2011
By David J. Monroe
I must have looked at a thousand ten dollar cheap affairs while looking for a functional portable music stand. They're flimsy junk. Not this one. Solid construction with an eye for utility. The base is solid, the friction devices holding the main support and shelf work almost like magic. The shelf is designed to hold much more than any other I've seen, and hold it better. There are grooves in the shelf to make items more stable, wires to hold down pages in a breeze, and fold out extensions to expand the capacity or fold away when not necessary. There was a bit of trial and error on the main support tension amount, but once set - like I said - magic! You won't be disappointed.
