I like my cheap pacific stand for my 18in crash...it works fine. I use a pacific 800 for my ride. A pearl heavy duty for my 10in tom and 16in crash and a used stand for my 14in tom and my china.

the pearl 800W is only $60 and it can be used in the crane business. Maybe they placed the wrong tag on it because this stand is beastly.

I bought three convertible stands at my local Guitar center made by Percussion Plus. Not a big name, in fact I had never heard of them. But they were 40.00 bucks each and being convertible, can be used as straight or boom. They are heavy, built well and have 2 adjustments at the top for length and tilt. Check them out.

I believe that "Percussion Plus" is GC's brand, and it's made by Gibraltar.

I've seen Gibraltar Brake Tilter boom arms packaged under the PP name.

The wing nuts are different, and I think the memory lock was a different shape, so it makes it look like it's not Gibraltar stuff.

I use the 9600 series Gibraltar Brake Tilter stands, have had them for a couple years with no problems at all.

Very nice, easy to adjust/use stands. Very road worthy too.

Easily as well built and the same quality as DW's (whatever series # they give their top line stands these days!).
I have a full set of DW hardware, and the Gibraltar 9600 stuff is equal to it, and some things I even like better than the DW stuff.

The Tama Roadpro, and the Pearl & Yamaha stands mentioned are real nice gear, and pretty easy on the pocketbook.

I have had 2 Gibraltar 5600 double braced stands mixed in with my Pearl hardware for over a year now and they are pretty decent. The can be converted between a boom and straight stand too. They are quite cheap!

You can buy hardware packs from most companies but I think they include snare and hi-hat stand too.

I bought the same one. Great stand cheap! I believe mine was 35 bones. This $79.00 for a single bracket straight stand is plain dumb. Some of these retail stores are getting out of control.

If you only need boom, then only use them as boom.

The only thing I can suggest is to walk into the music store of your choice and tell them you want 10 stands, and see if they will cut you a deal. To buy in bulk as you say would probably require a retail sales license. Other than that, I'm not sure why you would need 10 boom stands.

Again why do you need 10? My advice would be just to get a rack and buy arms for it.

Sorry that didn't make much sense to me, you need to replace stands that you do use? So you have a rack and you use that many stands as well, is that what you were saying? Well you must have a lot of damn cymbals hahahahahaha, but that is more fun, anyway I'd suggest buying some multi stands then, you know a stand that has like 2-3 arms.
