Default Low-cost hat stand that can go "low"?

I'd like to get a hat stand for my e-kit. For a while I've been using my Pearl Eliminator, but I'd like to use that for my acoustic set, so I have to find another one for the electronics.

I've been looking at the Pearl H900, which is on sale at a lot of places. It's one of the few low-cost hats that is on display in the music stores around me and I really liked the action. Problem is, Pearl hat stands don't go very low. I'm worried I'll have the same problem with the 900 that I had with the Eliminator - the Roland VH-11 hat has this long cylinder that rests on the hat stand, which puts the hat surface higher than I'd like.

Can anyone recommend a high-quality, relatively low-cost hat for such a use?

I think you'd be better off getting the stand you want, then lowering it. I've lowered hihat stands before and it's fairly simple.

Some companies offer short and long tubes (and operating rods), and in the case of probably any "budget", a simple hacksaw and a little elbow grease = a shorter hi-hat stand.
