Great designs from Hercules
Hercules offers equipment for the percussionist that just takes the stress out of performing on stage and recording, due to its extremely well thought-out designs and sturdy construction.
Top of the list of ‘must haves’ for the percussionist is the DS800B Percussion Table with a load capacity of 25kg, which can therefore hold a variety of items at once, and is versatile and has a removable wave foam mat and rubber edges. The table’s height is adjustable from 70cm - 123cm (27.6" - 48.4"). The good news that the table folds to just 615mm by 130mms x 85mms and only weighs 4.8kg to cart around, but is actually quite large at 470mm x 600mm (18.5” x 23.6”)
Said Robin Crocker of Hercules: “This stand has been on the market for four years now and was designed with specifications by Austin Davies at Cory Band. We sell lots of these stands because it’s so strong and stable.”
For recording percussion artists, Hercules offers the Low Profile Straight Microphone Stand W/EZ Mic Clip (MS300B), which is perfect for low profile application and features the EZ Mic Clip, EZ Height Adjustment Lever, which locks into position at the touch of a button, a tilting base 170 mm (6.7") allowing the shaft to be set at the desired angle, a wide base radius and tripod swivel legs that adjust independently. Like all Hercules’s design-led products, the MS300B has a height of 315mm - 475mms (12.4” - 18.7”), folds up compactly and weighs just 1kg.
Another option for recording is the Hercules Low Profile Tripod Mic Stand W/Book and Mic Clip (MS540B) with telescoping boom - ideal for drum and ‘amp’ microphone applications. This stand also features a folding tripod base, and a quick-N-EZ Boom Retainer that locks quickly and securely to the floor stand. The Die Cast Aluminum Tripod Base also provides support and durability, and the EZ Adaptor Flip Clip quickly secures the ‘mic’ clip in place and fits all standard size ‘mic’ stands. The boom length is 780 mm - 1220 mm (30.7" - 48"), height 655mms (25.8”) and base radius 325mms (12.9”), and it folds to a neat 782 mm x 105 mm x 90 mm (30.8" x 4.1" x 30.5").
