Default Need Help Boom Stand(s)

Ok Drummerworld

I am in the market for some new hardware, two boom stands in particular...

So I' m looking for an inexpensive boom stand the has the ability to be a straight stand and is "heavy" enough to hold a 12" tom

With so many different brands and models to choose from I can't tell if a stand is inexpensive and reliable or if its a cheap stand that wont be able to handle my tom

Also I need two stands not sure if thats helpful at all but I was thinking maybe there is a pack or something...

And on a slightly different note I' am also looking for a suspension mount for my 12" tom any suggestions?

Hopefully you guys can help me

Thanks
Max-

I' ve used Sound Percussion boom stands and they were great. I imagine that they could be what you're looking for. However(!), I don't gig so if someone here knows about quality of those stands in that respect, hopefully they can help you there. But yeah, SP's have been terrific for me.

PDP makes some quality stuff that is still pretty reasonably priced.

I use some 800 series stuff. Solid as all get out. My 800 straight stand has no problem holding a crash and my 13" tom.

As far as suspension mounts go, that really depends on the type of kit you have.

+ 1 on the PDP I have 800 series and 900 series. the 900's are super heavy duty go way up and the boom will conceal inside the stand for a completely straight stand.

Ditto this. I had three of them to hold my 8, 10, and 12 inch toms plus a cymbal each. They were 40 dollars each at GC. Mine are convertible which means they can be straight or boom.

The Tama Roadpro hardware is amazing quality. Sturdy as a house. I have 2 toms mounted off one of my Roadpro Straight Stands, along with 2 splashes mounted on it with a crash on the actual stand itself. 3 cymbals, 2 toms, 1 stand, they're great. Chunky as hell which is how I like them, other people dislike this however as it means they are very heavy which can be a nuisance for transport. So it depends how often you'll transport and how much you care about the weight of the stands. But yeah I believe a straight stand would set you back about 50, which is what, $80? Pretty good for the outstanding quality, but not for everyones taste I guess.

Well you could check out a few of the mounts available from Gibraltar. A SC-GTS Mount might do the trick. Now that I think about it, those should probably work for just about any drum.

Tama makes a tom/cymbal combo stand:

I have two of these and love them (one has a 12" tom and 15" crash, the other has a 10" tom, 18" crash, and 10" splash (on a separate clamp/boom)). And yea, the cymbal stand part will go straight.
