Default snare stand height

I recently bought a 13 x 7 snare drum, took it home and found that it sits a little too high for my liking. I tried tilting it, but doesn't really fix it. Ive tried to open up the 3 claws that holds the snare in place but they just get in the way of my legs.
My snare stand is pretty old and cheap but my question is... Do they make stands that are lower in height?

A 7" deep snare should fit comfortably in most snare stands. However, if you're still struggling then Pearl make a stand designed to house deeper snares: http://www.pearldrum.com/Products/Ha...s/S-1000D.aspx

I believe DW also make one.

Check out the Mapex s950. The s750 can go pretty low as well.

Ludwig also makes a low stand and it's pretty inexpensive if memory serves.

Almost all the majors market snare stands with off-set baskets, which help accommodate deeper snares.

Great quality, smooth operation.
The wing nuts don't have to be cranked at all to REALLY hold the settings.
The basket also has the grips that don't choke the drum at all.
Of all the snare stands I have, or have had, this one is the nicest.

5 Stars, 2 thumbs up etc... on this stand from me.

You could also cut down the tube of the lower portion and then re-install the clamp that holds the upper tube.

That's a fairly easy job, but then you may run into not being able to fold the legs up.
Some stands have longer tube sections than needed, and it's cheaper to buy a tube cutter, and a little industrial epoxy than a whole new stand.

That is, if you have the ability/tools to get the height clamp off the tube. A vice of some kind to hold the base is pretty necessary too. They don't come off just by pulling them.
Also, look for any locking screw--some companies add those.

The Pearl stand for sure will go low enough, and Ludwigs Modular low stand for sure will go low enough.
The DW medium weight (less expensive) and standard 9000 snare stands will for sure go low enough.
Gibraltars Ultra Adjust snare stand would probably go low enough too.

Those are the stands I have experience with.

I've seen a couple of guys who simply bought a standard multiclamp and clamped the top portion of the snare stand to the bottom portion. Simple, inexpensive and should cover your needs nicely. The drawback is of course that it might make the stand a bit less stable, since all the weight will be to one side.

Thanks for all the advice everyone! (love this forum)
I solved the problem by returning the snare and actually picking up a 72' supraphonic!
5 X 14. It costs me a bit more moolah but I'm happy about it. I will post pics in the snare thread once I remember how to do it :)
Thanks again guys
