Re: Another FB stand thread - specifically hanging toms
I own Gibraltar FB stands and I don't hang toms from the cymbal stands at present. I have hung a 10" tom from one in the past with no issue.
I know that they are strong enough to take the load of a 10 and 12 inch tom along with a cymbal.
You may have to set the locking collar on the stand base up a bit higher for more stability.
A FB stand will sway more than a triangle base stand. There is no way around that fact.
In the pic I have a 20" ride and a 19" crash on a Gibraltar FB boom stand. It is very sturdy.
I kind of like old drums:)
