Re: what ride stands are you using?
Another vote for single braced Yamaha here. I have a really heavy Tama that is indestructible here in my project studio, but I leave it at home. Since I have two hanging side toms, those along with a crash are on a DW 9000 stand. But the ride has never moved or been an issue with the Yamaha. A real heavy hitter turned me one to these. I collected some to use with my Safari kit but after watching him over a couple of months I started taking one out for the ride to lighten the load. As Bo said, well made beats overmade every time.
