I took the Yamaha HS-1100 2 leg stand back today - that I bought just yesterday. I didn't like the feel, look and I didn't believe the quality was there either. The drum department person showed me some stands and then he said he plays a Pearl H-2000 Power-shifter Eliminator 2 leg pedal and really likes it. He had one left in the box - none on the floor. I bought it. I was impressed right out of the box, nice look, (shiny - that's always nice) and felt like it was built well. I set it up and liked it right away.
I'm new at all this and haven't got the set quite all together yet (got some rack stuff, cymbal posts and a double pedal coming) but this pedal feels right - so far.
I'll pop a few photos in here to show you the stand and my new invention drumcyms
- not! The Drumcyms sound not too bad in a kind of latin-funk way
I have the cymbals on the drums just so I can at least hit them until the rest of the kit is together.
