How are you liking your flat hi-hat stand? I may get one too just to complete the flat-base look for my kit...even if isn't all Gibraltar. Since I play a Ludwig too, it wouldn't be too out of place.
After looking, I did see a few negative reviews on the Gibraltar flat-base hi-hat stand. I'm not entirely sure I want to take a risk on that one.
