Re: Hi-hat stand and clutch quality
Im not sure the stand would make a difference, I use regularly DW 9000, with the Gibraltar quick release clutch. very old DW 5000 with a Gibraltar drop clutch and a mid 80s TAMA with a mid 80s TAMA clutch, While they do feel different i don't hear a difference.
A little off topic, I use the Gibraltar quick release on my gig kit and I love it! I use the TAMA quick release cymbal nuts on all the stands. At 1:00 AM tearing down you learn to appreciate anything that makes it easier ;-)
