Default dw hi-hat stand

I am stuck between buying a dw 9000 or 5000 hi-hat stand. Does anyone have experience with these and can tell me their opinions? Thanks...

I've played the same 5000 for close to, let's see, ten years, and it's always been there for me. I'm not sure that there's much of a difference between the hi-hat stands that all the big hardware manufacturers have to offer. I've just always liked and played DW pedals. You can't go wrong.

I had a DW 5000 that I played for 5+ years. Finally got tired of lugging around the "extra" weight of double-braced hardware and replaced it with an older Yamaha single braced stand (what would be 700 series). The 5000 stand did a great job, though. Bought it used, sold it used, for the same amount.

The 5000 is solid, I played it for over 10 years, no problems. I recently upgraded to the 9000, it's heavier duty, thus it's heavier in weight. You can't go wrong with either.

Thanks for the replys everyone,

I think I'm gonna go with the 9000 even though it is more $$$. It just looks like it will be a little smoother and more responsive.

I'm sure you will be happy I play a 2-legged dw hi-hat stand i've had it for about 8 yrs. and never had a problem what so ever.

Keep swattin',

P.S. you might see if they make a 2-legged version easier to place on stage & it's lighter.Just my 2 cents

Thanks bro, I am planning on getting the two-legger. You're exactly right about the ease of placement and weight. And from what I've heard, these dw stands will last for years and years. So your two cents is worth much more than you think...don't sell yourself short man. lol!

Thanks again.
