I just got an old vintage 60s' MIJ kit for only $120, sveral drums in not bad shape. it came with some random old hardware. I was planning just to sell off all the 'junk' hardware but this old hihat stand interested me. I thought I'd give it a try, and its crazy but it plays and feels better than than my more 'modern' Gibraltar or Yamaha's I'd been using. The old hihat stand looks like crap, but its a keeper . Anybody had the same experience?
