Thanks. :)

But I think Gibraltar and Ludwig are certainly getting there - market forces are making them change at last. I have read that Ludwig have been sleep-walking in terms of hardware until the Atlas Classic range, and it is quite nice. A lightweight throne, and direct drive pedal options, and they could rule. In fact they could just make the classic hi-hat a direct drive pedal (surely a metalhead will not be using an item like this!) and a choice between a direct drive or belt drive bass pedal.

Chains and lightweight stands don't mix. :)
