Pearl, DW, Yamaha, Tama, Gibraltar all make quality hardware. Check out any of their offerings.

What price?

Here you go mate. I found this site: http://www.drumshack.co.uk/prodtype....earchCriteria= with Sterling prices to give me an idea. For 150 quid you can get a bit. The Pearl's are all good stands. The Tama Iron Cobra is good. The Yamaha will be good. There's even a used DW within your budget.

Have a look around. Looks like your money will get you something quite decent.

No need to go off the deep end on a hi-hat stand. Just look for one that's dependable, breaks down easily, and most of all is stable. Swivel-leg is just about standard now but if you play double bass, you can't really do without it, so make sure it has that.

Mid-range offerings from Yamaha, Gibraltar, and PDP are personally all recommended.

You could always go with a Remote Speedy Hat! Moving the hats over a bit makes playing everything easier and opens up new possibilities. And no one has ever broken one so it's good to go on the road.

Any chance of a budget 'SPEEDY HAT' like in the $150 range?

I understand that the DW hihat feels different to other offerings in that the speed of opening isn't as fast as the Tama for example. Now this is not a problem, but you may need to readjust your technique.

What bass pedal are you using?

I have the Tama Iron Cobra kick and the Tama HH605 hihat. I'm very pleased with it but if you buy any of the manufacturers products around 150 you will be cooking with gas.

I picked up a Tama Road Pro Hi Hat stand on ebay for 55 US with shipping. Ebay can be a great place to find some lightly used equipment that will get the job done.
