Named after the Roman hero/demigod, the stands hold up to their name. They're strong, reliable, durable, and easily portable. I use this exact stand for all of my gigs, at home, and at the store. This one works for alto or tenor sax and comes with the clarinet/flute peg as well. Perfect for a jazz sax player who has to double on flute or clarinet. Don't let your horns down by not putting them in Hercules' arms!
