Default What would be a good boom stand to go for?

Hi, I am looking to buy a new boom stand for my kit, I would like it to be fairly heavy duty, because i want to use it for a 16" china and possibly have a tom coming from it. My budget would be up to 60 and I'm happy to buy 2nd hand, any body have any ideas?

Thanks, Blake

plenty of options in that range:

http://www.drumcentral.co.uk///pearl...nd-p-8612.html

mapex have some good 500 series hardware in that range, and i have a tom and a crash coming off of mine, very sturdy and strong, with memory locks. Cant recommend it enough.

I also have one of CB drums better boom stands... solid double adjustable and double braced, and about 40 if i remember correctly. Its holding a 22" ride just now and it does so admirably with no obvious wobble.

Are the 500 series still in production? Im finding it hard to find any of them around. I think i have either a BC800 or 900 at the moment, and unsiprisingly it struggles with a 22" ride and a tom. Do you know which is the heavier of the two?

thats very odd.. cos my m-birch kit comes with the B323A stand.. which supports a smaller 10" tom and a crash cymbal, and i have absolutely no complaints.

why not look at one with a counterbalanced boom arm. You may just be asking too much from a stand TBH.... most that run toms are probably best left as just that, or running lightweight cymbals.

Atm im playing 1 up 2 down, so I kind of want to be able to mount it onto another stand instead of the ride. It may struggle with stability a bit because the tom and ride cymbal (Sabian AA stage, its 20", but still quite heavy, my mind went blank :D) are facing nearly in the same direction, with the boom being quite far outstretched. Mrbling do you know what model the stands that you are using are?

Get a double braced boom stand that you can swivel the cymbal at any angle, none of those locking teeth sorta swivels.

The Pearl one that i own at the moment is easily adjustable and I can have it at any angle, so Im confused now ^^

Would a Mapex B550A be a good choice?

I have a 323A... and i love it.. strong.. sturdy.. double braced.. its supporting my 8" rack tom, and a 16" crash cymbal. Its very very solid, well put together stand for the money.

It should be well under your budget.. theres one on ebay for about 18 plus postage.

Yea, I have to put the legs right to make sure it doesnt tip over.

So, would the Mapex B323A be a good buy?

Could you give a link please shrink, I cant find it =/

Although I don't know the model number, my most recent boom stand purchase was a Mapex stand, but it has the cymbal swivel adjustable thingy that dw has on there stands...it's the best stand I own and it was only about $70.

If you didnt already make a decision, im a big fan of the Tama Roadpro series hardware. They also make one with a tom mount attached to it. I have that stand and it is rock solid.
