Re: High End Hat Stands....Godsend or Gimmick?
I've been using a DW 5000 HH stand for 15 years and it still works great. I haven't been able to adjust the spring tension, though. I always assumed it had that capability, but recently I was thinking it felt a little weak and tried to tension it up but I couldn't figure out how! So I raised the footboard a notch on the chain and that's probably all I'll get from it.
All the rest of that stuff? Gimmicks.
