I bought a Gibraltar cymbal boom arm (the kind you multiclamp onto another stand), and the centre rod is waaaaay fatter than any of my Pearl, Yamaha, and Tama cymbal stands, which means cymbals can hardly move before being abruptly stopped by the stand. No way Iím putting my cymbals on that destructo-matic either.
I donít understand why that company still exists, given their products are so poorly-designed.
I have almost exclusively Gibraltar cymbal holders and have no clue what you're talking about. My cymbals swing freely without a problem. They use the same 8mm threads as the others you mentioned.
