Default Re: Flat leg stands vs regular pros and cons?

A flat-base stand will tuck next to a bass drum tighter than a tripod-base stand, particularly useful for a ride cymbal on a single rack tom set-up.

I use vintage Ludwig 1400 stands for cymbals and snare, some with a small twist. I've taken some old tripod snare bases, and used them on some cymbal stands, for a little more stability. In this photo, the ride is on a flat-base, the crash on a modified 1400.

Still, they're compact, lightweight, and plenty sturdy even for fairly hard playing. I haven't used my old heavy stands in about 10 years. :)
