Default What Hi Hat and double kick??

Sorry if this has been mentioned or posted somewhere.
My issue:
I am struggling on finding a good hi hat stand.
Price range: Under $300 us dollars.
I played a dw 9000 hat over the weekend, but found it too over cumbersome and bulky to me.
In the past I have usually ended up with pearl hats and bd pedals.
How about a tama hat?
Maybe an iron cobra hat?
Im about 95% sure I am going with Pearl 2002c eliminators as far as bass drum pedals..
I tried the dw 9000 but to me the pedal felt way to loose and not enough recoil.
Id like to see opinions on mainly the hats. I will take the reviews and go out and try them in person before buying.
Found this thread, but still am looking: http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=33738
So, I am asking you.
What high hat?

Thanx.
But I have heard too many horror stories regarding axis.
I played axis double bass set up and hi hat this past weekend.
My conclusion:
Rather nice, but too over priced and to me they actually felt too light for me.

I guess it's the first time I hear something bad about the DW 9000's :P

Personally, I play a Yamaha DFP9310 as a double kick pedal and I'm totally satisfied with the feel of it - I always felt Yamaha pedals very comfortable to play.

(Strangely though for the price range of the DFP9310, the security lock of my spring sometimes tends to unscrew a bit (only the one for the right side of the pedal). There isn't a change in the feel that I could identify when this happens, but I just don't like it.)

In the past I have not been a fan of Gibraltar pedals but I am thinking bout checking out this one:

I saw that one on someone's setup here recently and it looks like a great investment to me.

'That one' in reference to the Gibraltar ultra-adjust.

the new gibraltar pedals and hihat stands are all really nice. plus they look super hot with that cut out footboard. I tried the ultra adjust though, and the small hat placement benefit wasn't worth feeling like a cable hat. Their regular hat stand is really nice, as are the eliminator hihat, and the pdp BOA and pdp800.

As far as kick pedals, the best ones I've played are Sleishman, but they're hard to find. Close second are the Trick pedals, but they're crazy expensive. You could get a Trick pedal if you got the pdp800 hihat instead of a $200 or $300 stand. The 800 is actually really good. It even makes my hihats sound better.
The Pearls are pretty good kick pedals, but they still come in for me after those two pedals, DW9000 with a beater weight, DW5000, and direct drive Flying Dragon. I think all those are more expensive though, so you'll have to decide how you want to spend your moneys.

Most pedals these days are good. Unless you want to burn some doubles or use real heavy hihats you can get by with any kick pedal that's not a single chain, and any hihat stand with spring adjustment.

I use the DW 9000 series pedals and HH stand, and find them to be excellent.. One of the main features, (for me), that I like regarding the HH stand, is the ability to adjust the spring tension to suit the cymbal weight.. allowing me to balance the pedal response to the cymbal.. which allows for more precise playing and a bit more subtlety.

If you have no concern for that, then I guess any stand will do for you.. I really don't think it's any more cumbersome than any other HH stand, especially since it only has two legs.

My $0.02

I guess there hasn't been any unfortunate footboard breaks with any other pedal-makers?

I don't understand how if that would disqualify them for a hi-hat stand? All the adjustments that a DW, Gibraltar, or any other stand for that matter has. $180 is not that bad...

But to each their own. Good luck with it.

Taye has nice hat stands with removable toe stops and patented clutches that don't detach (while playing) from the cymbal. I really like the one with my Gokit.

Check out the BOA pedals for kick pedals and also the Taye Metalworks.
