Default Re: Flat-Base Hardware - DW vs. Ludwig vs. Gibraltar

Just weighed my new Ludwig Atlas Classic stands and my Yamaha stands and here are the differences (in case anyone is wondering or does a Google search to figure it out.)

Yamaha CS755 Boom Stand - 3641g
Yamaha CS650A Straight Stand - 2479g
Yamaha HS740A Hi-Hat Stand - 3586g
Yamaha SS740A Snare Stand - 2585g

Total - 12291g

Ludwig Atlas Classic Snare Stand - 2954g
Ludwig Atlas Classic Boom Stand - 2745g
Ludwig Atlas Classic Straight Stand - 2351g
Ludwig Atlas Classic Hi-Hat Stand - 3121g

Total - 11171g

Difference - 1120g or 2 pounds 7.5 ounces

Not real drastic, but that's still enough of a weight difference to feel it.

PS - I also ordered and just received another Ludwig Atlas Classic straight stand, so now I have exactly what I need. Of course, that makes the bag heavier than before, but I do have another stand.
