Re: Question about issues with DW 9000 Hi-Hat stand.
When I had that stand, I don't recall the chain ever touching the tension dial. Could it be possible there's something broken? Maybe it's time to have DW look at it.
Anyway, after a while I lost my honeymoon moment with all things DW and switched out to Tama and Yamaha. The simpler the better for me. I can play pretty hard, but I don't need to be using a hi-hat I can jack my car up on. I hated how heavy that thing was with the hi-hats on it. But that's a whole 'nother discussion.
