Default Low Snare Stand

hey guys, maybe you can help me

My setup consists of a 22x18 bass drum, a 14x5.5 snare drum, a 13x10 rack tom and a 16x16 floor tom.

I like the drums to support themselves - my rack tom sits on a snare stand, my floor tom uses its legs, bass drum has nothing attached to it etc. I think it makes a fair difference to the sound and gives the drums room to breathe, but also means that things tend to not fall apart much.

My problem at the minute is getting the rack tom to sit lower. I want it to be able to sit as low as (or maybe just slightly above) my snare, so that when I'm playing fills I have to hit down on it, rather than forward or up, and so that I can have it flat rather than tilting it slightly towards me.

I'm a very hard-hitting drummer - so having the rack tom attached to a cymbal stand is a disaster waiting to happen.

Are there any snare stands which would be good for this, and would sit lower, so that my rack tom can sit on a relative level with my snare? I'm looking for something fairly stable which isn't too expensive.

Pearl offer a low stand mate. Check it out here: http://www.pearldrum.com/Products/Ha...s/S-1000D.aspx

I'm sure other hardware manufacturers do too, but this is the one I'm familiar with.

I bought the Pearl S1000D (for deep) snare stand for under $100.00. I have a 14x8 Ludwig Collisium snare and I still have plenty of room to drop even lower. I looked high and low. This stand rocks! You go even go 10 inch deep with no height issues at all.

+3 on the S1000D Pearl stand linked.

I have one for my snare and its great, doesn't choke the drum at all with the grip it uses.

I have the one with the adjustable basket (S2000) for my different tom sizes. The 2000 goes plenty low for my tom, but I needed the lower one for the snare.

This one will definitely work for what you want, and it wont move either.
I can highly recommend it.
