Default Can anyone suggest a Good Solid Boom Stand?

I'm looking at the DW Series of Boom stands and a recording kit I use at a studio
has them... I love them. Super solid and reliable. I think i'd like some for my personal
kit.

I'm just curious if there is something else great and more affordable for my budget.
$90-100 bucks for a boom cymbal stand is pricey. You get what you pay for, but
maybe there's something else out there...


*i've always used straight stands. Currently use Pacific Drums stands, some have
broken in the past.

For a medium priced stand I like the Pearl BC-900 boom/straight stand. They're about $70 USD. They are double braced, very strong, substantial in the weight department and have Uni-Lock tilters. They also come equipped with memory locks.

+1 on the Pearl 900 stands. I love mine, although I don't use the boom stands, I have straight stands. Even better! Also good are offerings by Tama and Yamaha. I like the DW stuff, but it's almost too heavy in alot of respects. I like sturdy stuff, but I do not need to jack my car up on it ;)

Yamaha 700 series (single-braced) or 800 series (double-braced). Great stands. I have had my 700s for going on 15 years now and have never felt the need to get anything else.

I got a Pearl 900 snare stand yesterday from a place that was closing them out for a very low price. I was shocked at how heavy it is, but it seems to be built like a tank though.

If the cymbals stands are made similarly, they'd be heavy enough that I wouldn't want to be carrying them around all the time.
My Yamaha stuff is much lighter, and plenty stable enough for me.

I have had no problems with my PDP 900 series stands and they are rock solid, I have never had any problems with Pearl stands either.

Yamaha 700 here as well. Very light (easier to carry) yet sturdy and last forever.

I was recently looking at the DW 9000 series boom stand myself. I came to the conclusion for a lot less money and having no need for memory locks on a cymbal stand I just went with the tried-and-true Tama RoadPro boom stand. it's a solid stand and the features of being able to take a cymbal off was just a pinch is very useful to me. I've had a lot of good experience with Tama before. They quite simply make good dependable hardware that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
