When all of the hardware broke on my Big Beat, I replaced it all with more functional or better replacements as well. When I say "all hardware", the only original piece of Hercules hardware left is one straight cymbal stand. Gone are the hi hat stand, snare stand, bass drum pedal, two cymbal stands, tom mount and bass drum spurs. Cheap metal. I replaced the bass drum spurs with OEM spurs and the tom mount is a Rocker mount (more functional) but all the other hardware is Yamaha.
