The Violin/Viola Stand from HERCULES Stands makes it easy for you to bring along a secure place to rest your instrument, wherever your fiddling takes you. Simply rest the peg box of your violin or viola in the Auto-Grip System (AGS) and the weight of the instrument lifts the front levers, securing the instrument onto the stand. To release, all you need to do is lift the instrument. Specially formulated foam covers all of the stand's contact points to protect your violin or viola's finish from dents and scratches.
The adjustable height makes the stand suitable for either a ¼-to-full-size violin or a viola up to 17". A detachable utility holder can hold small accessories such as a piece of rosin, and the bow hook at the top of the stand lets you hang your bow next to your instrument. When it's time to pack up, the stand's three-section design allows you to fold the stand compactly and slide it into the included carrying bag.
