Default Cymbal stands for toms.

I recently purchased a ddrum Dios 5 piece that requires the toms be mounted on the cymbal stands. At the moment I have some SP880BS stands. They seem really flimsy and not strong enough to continue to have the toms hanging off of them.

I need some ideas on good, solid stands for possibly under a $100.
Which ones are the best?

Most people would suggest double-braced stands for stability. I use Yamaha 600 series single-braced stands and have never had a problem.

Always make sure the weight is centered over one of the legs of the stand, especially with lighter stands.

They are double braced and I usually do have it over a leg, but man they just shake.

WHAT shakes? The stand or the tom?

When I first got my Renowns with three rack toms I bought three Sound Percussion convertible stands for about 40 bucks each. Each held one tom, a cymbal and a few had some percussion pieces on them. They are heavy, rock solid, the base is wide and for the money they can't be beat.

When mounting a tom on a stand, if possible put the tom holder into the stand and attach the top part(s) of the cymbal stand with the clamp. Also, as was mentionned, keep one leg under the tom. Spread the legs out a bit too. Good luck.

I have my stand legs extended quite far out for balance and also the tom over the leg
