Flat-Base Hardware - DW vs. Ludwig vs. Gibraltar
I'm in the market for a full set of lightweight flat-base hardware (2 straight stands, hi-hat stand, and snare stand) and I'm not real sure which way to go.
I'm looking at the DW 6000 series, Ludwig Atlas Classic series, and the Gibraltar stuff, but I'm not real sure which way to go without putting my hands on them. Of course, I can't find any of this locally at the moment (but I'm still looking.)
Does anyone have thoughts on these three options? Of course, I'm after lightweight, but also something that will last a while and not wear out quickly.
Any opinions are welcome!
PS - I own a combination of single-braced Yamaha stands now and love them (600 and 700 series.) They are light and work well. I'm just looking for another set and want to try something different.
