Default I gonna buy some Tama Hardware but I don't have much experience choosing...

I don't have much experience choosing exactly what I need. I want a very clean efficient set up.

I will need hardware (Excluding Snare and Hi-Hat) to mount:

2 Crash cymbals
1 Splash cymbal
1 Ride Cymbal

...All will be mounted around a new Starclassic Performer 4 pc. setup with 1 rack & 1 floor tom with a 16x20 Bass in the usual places these are set up in.

What are my best options and what will I need to get the job done?

Are you mounting your tom off the bass drum or off a stand? I would go with just individual stands for the ride and crashes, and mount the splash off one of the stands with a grabber clamp or cymbal arm. Straight or Boom stands are personal preference. I use straight stands for everything because they're more simplistic. As you're using a 4 piece I'd at least get a straight stand for the ride, and then either boom or straight stands for the crashes depending on where you want them positioned. Also if you're mounting the tom off a cymbal stand, a boom stand works a little better at positioning.

Tama hardware is tough. If you want to go as heavy as you can, Roadpro. http://www.tama.com/drums/tama_link....nd/index.htmlm If you want to go lighter, Stage Master single braced. I recently sold all my Tama double-braced Titan hardware on eBay (where the Roadpro line came from) after 25+ years of use. Nothing like getting your "money's worth" out of your hardware. To mount a splash, you can use a aux. clamp/cymbal arm http://www.tama.com/drums/tama_link....l_a/index.html No need to use a 12lb. stand to fly a 6" splash, but some people do. I'm using all straight stands in my rig, for the "old school elegance" of it, but boom stands certainly give you more versatility with cymbal placement.

I really like all the new Tama Roadpro hardware. You should get a couple of the HC73BWN stands. They can be used as either a straight or boom stand. They also have multi clamps and tom holders that work great.

I always liked the Stilt feature that Tama came out with, eventually, on the Titan line.

I don't mean to dredge out an old thread but rather than start my own I'd just like to ask:

Is it worth the money to go RoadPro instead of Stagemaster?

I'm looking at hi hat stands and if anyone could give me the run-down of differences between the RP and SM (double braced) that'd be great.

The Roadpro is $115 CAD vs. the Stagemaster at $82 CAD. Worth the extra ~$30 bucks? I play single kick so I prefer a 3-legged stand. The Stagemaster seems to be a bit lighter, the Roadpro looks cool and seems a bit beefier,but if there's anything I'm missing please let me know, thanks in advance

I have a road pro hihat stand. The road pro allows you to swivel the legs in order to set up a slave bass drum pedal right beside it. This is one reason I bought the stand. Generally its a real nice hihat stand, its very responsive worth the money.
I'm not sure the stagemaster has this option, it might.

Personally, my cymbal stands are all single brace Yammies, but I like my hihat double brace, it just feels more solid to me, also you have the added toughness in case you want to mount something off it, ie: aux snare. cymbal whatever.
I went with the Roadpro but it really comes down to what your present and future needs are.

As far as boomstands gothe roadpro offers the boom/straight options all in one stand. I don't know if the stagemaster allows this. Also the Roadpro doesnt use teeth locking. It's very smooth. I don't think you could rotate the legs on the hihat stand on the stagemaster. There are are also Iron Cobra Hihat stands tooo. I don't get the big difference btwn them and the roadpro other than a massive price difference.
