He tells me (regarding the concert snare stand) that the “basket tilter” has been re-designed and DW isn’t putting the “sliding crossbar” adjustment on it (probably because the shifted weight made them tip over easily).
Now, what I’m asking, is how do these things change the way that the snare stand works and operates?
Assume its better... it is DW, they're not going to redesign something to be 'not as good' as its predecessor, or at least its a safe bet they're not. They test their stuff and they're very drummer conscious.
Probably: The sliding crossbar thing is cool/works and earned its place on a standard stand, they thought that could carryover to a concert stand, the realized later it really wasn't needed.
Crossbar adds weight too. If choosing I would opt for the newer design.
