Default Recommend me a cymbal stand, guys

I've finally decided that my china would work better if it was on a stand...instead of in my cymbal bag. It's a big old heavy 20" Z custom...so I'm after something sturdy but inexpensive. What do you reckon?

You can always find something on Craigslist thwart will work. I would also suggest you consider mounting it to an existing stand with an extended, Dog Bone, etc. I thinks it is best to have fewer stands and to pile as much on them as possible.

Does Craigslist exist in the UK? I don't have any stands in the area of my kit I'm going to put it, so I think it'll have to be a new stand (to put this in perspective, this will take my total number of cymbal stands to three!) Plus, it is really really heavy.

I have two Gibraltar 5609 stands, and one is for my 17" AAX China. I like the stand.

Cheers

Pearl 900 Straight or combo stand.

Solid, adjustable, just heavy enough.

I second the cymbal stacker Idea. I use a DW one that allows me to mount it on the existing threaded top of my existing stand and then I can adjust the china up and back of the other cymbal, any direction I can dream up. The less feet on the floor the better. :)

I really like the Yamaha CS750: single-barced so that it is not too heavy, but it is heavy duty enough to handle much. Peace and goodwill.

I use a Gibraltar boom arm attatchment for my china. Clamp it on a cymbal stand. Sturdy and doesnt take up a lot of space.

This...

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/drums...91657000000000

They also sell Two for $59!

Heaviest, sturdiest and biggest Stands I own, you can Kick them and they still won't move. They’re built to last and Believe me, I tried them all and these are SICK!

They will definitely be survivors through the Apocalypse. lol

Yes but ordering those in the UK?

Ben, I saw a Tama Roadpro on the Kent Gumtree the other day. Straight for 30 quid and boom for 45. Have a look on there!

My bad! However, Music 123 ships to the UK. Don't know how much postage is though...
