I currently have two Yamaha 700-series boom stands, two 600-series straight stands, and two 700-series hi-hat stands. I agree that they work perfectly for a light sturdy setup! I like them alot, actually and have zero complaints.
I just want another full setup to keep in the car at all times and was wanting something different. I do like the look of the flat-base stands and there's always a chance that whatever I buy will end up staying home, while the Yamaha stuff goes out.
Plus, I just like new gear and am pretty satisfied with my drums, cymbals, and pedals at the moment. Need something else to want. ha ha
