On-Stage Stands, the leader in innovative instrument support products, introduces its new GS8200 ProGrip II Hang-It Guitar Stand. This pro-level stand joins other models in the Hang-It series like the GS8100 ProGrip Guitar Stand, GS7155 Single Guitar Stand, GS7255 Double Guitar Stand, and GS7355 Triple Guitar stand. Like all Hang-It models, the GS8200 is designed to allow guitars, basses, banjos, and similar instruments to hang securely from their headstocks rather than sitting in a cradle. The Hang-It design is exceptionally stable and especially well suited for long instruments with asymmetrical body styles. ?

Introduced earlier last year, the first generation GS8100 Pro-Grip Stand is equipped with our exclusive patent-pending ProGrip gate system. When placed into the GS8100’s cam-activated yoke, the instrument’s weight closes the padded gates, locking the headstock firmly in place. The instrument stays put even with the vigorous bumping that can occur on crowded stages or in rehearsal studios. The system releases simply by lifting the guitar up and out of the stand. ??

The new GS8200 ProGrip II also utilizes an auto-locking yoke system, but features a spring-loaded gate, allowing for even easier instrument removal. The weight of a guitar draws the spring-loaded yoke arms to pull the gates of the yoke shut, all in one single action. Picking up the guitar opens the gates instantly outward for unobstructed removal. The GS8200 also includes a purple designer cam locking mid-point clutch and reinforced leg housing.

Like the GS8100, the GS8200 is lined with soft velveteen rubber at all contact points, specially formulated to avoid marring and/or reacting with instrument finishes. The GS8200’s wide reinforced tripod base supports up to 40lbs, and the yoke height is adjustable from 30" to 43". Suitable for any style of guitar, bass, or banjo, the GS8200 (List $59.99) provides peace of mind on stage and in the studio.??The GS8200 will be available in April.
