Hi all- recently I've been needing to purchase a new hi-hat stand, preferably with a 2-leg design since I like to have my hi-hat on the inside of my slave pedal. I was considering these-
- T̶h̶e̶ ̶L̶u̶d̶w̶i̶g̶ ̶A̶t̶l̶a̶s̶ ̶P̶r̶o̶ ̶h̶a̶t̶ ̶s̶t̶a̶n̶d̶,̶ ̶n̶i̶c̶e̶ ̶l̶o̶o̶k̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶g̶o̶o̶d̶ ̶d̶r̶i̶v̶e̶ ̶m̶e̶c̶h̶a̶n̶i̶s̶m̶ ̶b̶u̶t̶ ̶a̶ ̶l̶i̶t̶t̶l̶e̶ ̶h̶e̶a̶v̶y̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶e̶x̶p̶e̶n̶s̶i̶v̶e̶ (too expensive)
- T̶h̶e̶ ̶D̶W̶ ̶9̶0̶0̶0̶ ̶d̶u̶a̶l̶-̶l̶e̶g̶ ̶p̶e̶d̶a̶l̶,̶ ̶l̶e̶s̶s̶ ̶n̶i̶c̶e̶ ̶d̶r̶i̶v̶e̶ ̶m̶e̶c̶h̶a̶n̶i̶s̶m̶ ̶b̶u̶t̶ ̶m̶a̶t̶c̶h̶e̶s̶ ̶m̶y̶ ̶9̶0̶0̶0̶s̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶e̶a̶s̶i̶e̶r̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶f̶i̶n̶d̶ ̶u̶s̶e̶d̶ (too expensive)
- The Gibraltar 9607DL-LD, their fancy "liquid drive" which looks nice and great price but ugly footboard and unknown quality
- The new Mapex Falcon one, good price, awesome clutch, great design, yet a bog-standard boring looking drive mechanism
I'm looking for a more solid feel than my current Tama Roadpro, which doesn't seem to offer much control on any spring tension levels and feels bland to me. Any opinions about these (or suggestions of other stands, even 3-legged ones) are much appreciated, and as you may have guessed, I'm not too keen on spending more than $250. Thanks in advance.
