Default Mixed Hardware?

Is all of your hardware the same brand, or is it mixed, different brands?

Mine is very mixed.

Mapex: bass drum pedal, hi-hat stand, clamp
Pearl: tom holders (one long, one short), cymbal boom, floor tom legs, throne
Gibraltar: snare stand, cymbal booms, clamps, percussion mounts, bass drum lift
Gretsch: tom holder, floor tom legs
Tama: two single-braced, two-part cymbal stands

Yep -mine's like a veritable mixed bag:
• Hi hat and bass drum pedal are DW5000
• Snare stand is Pearl
• one three way stand is Gibraltar, the other is a Pearl 1000 series with an AX38 three way adapter.
• One Yamaha old style boom stand
• All the tom holders(x2) are Pearl,
then I have various mini booms:
• Old style Yamaha x 1, new style Yamaha x1, Tama mini boom x1, couple of DW dog bones and cymbal grabbers
• stool is a DW
• cymbal felts are all Pearl...
all of this was bought as and when I could, and whenever a deal came up...
Claim to fame:
the Tama boom arm was given to me by Mike Portnoy!!! (I won it in a raffle at a clinic he did in Leeds back in the 90s)

All DW

I used to have a hodge podge of different brand hardware and over time, I upgraded to have it all be the same brand and better quality.

DW9000 series pedals, stands, hh, mounts, etc..

Default Re: Mixed Hardware?

My stands/hardware is mixed.

Eliminator bass drum pedals.
DW Flat Base, Single, or DB stands (or Ludwig, or Gibraltar...).
DW (lighter version), or Ludwig hi-hat stand.
Pearl seat.

The brands are mixed, but I don't use different brands together in one set up.

Mine's all Gibraltar, and has been for many years. Cheaper than many other brands, and they've never let me down. Gotta love a company that specialises in only hardware.

I have enough dw9000 to outfit my gigging kit with a double pedal, HH stand, 2 boom stands, 1 straight, snare. At home if I have a double bass kit up with more cymbals then I also have PDP cymbal stands, Gibralter odds and ends, ludwig and pearl snare stands. I was a little OCD about matching all dw9000, but now I have so much stuff I don't really care and I mix it all the time.

DW 5000 BD pedal and hi-hat stand.

Gibraltar 9000 boom stands and clamps.

I have very little other percussion so far, but I wouldn't care what I got for that. I just want what I feel is best for my needs.

Mine's all over the place; Tama bass pedal, Yamaha hi hat and cymbal stands, Mapex tom holder, and a leftover cymbal stand from my previous Pacific kit.

When the Pacific junk finally dies it'll get replaced with Yamaha. I love their stands.

I have all Yamaha Cymbal stands, everything is modular, anything possible and nothing ever breaks.

Pedals DW9000, Love the bassdrum pedal, hate the 2 legged hi-hat, feels ok but not stable and a pain in the ass to pack/unpack, given the price very poor value seems fragile. In contrast mid range Tama Roadpro I had before was a far bettey design, thanks DW.

I bought the DW 5000 series hi hat stand a few months ago, but I went for the three legged variety. It's a very stable stand, as most three legged stands are.

As long as it works, I'm happy. If my hardware has the same gauge, it gets put together as necessary. The important thing is that it works.

Would I like to have matched hardware? Absolutely. Is it necessary? Of course not.

Default Re: Mixed Hardware?

Why? Because if you buy the right parts then you'll never have a problem.

My hardware is a mixture of necessity and gear that I've inherited. I have a lot of hardware. I have a full set of Pearl hardware that I was very kindly given about a year ago that is rock solid - but bits of it aren't even compatible with other bits of Pearl hardware! The rest of my hardware is fairly cheap but functional and just so happens to be compatible with everything else that isn't some of the Pearl set.

I've gone as far to assemble stands out of three different brands because the precise lengths of tubing and boom arms was just right. Some booms are too long, some are too short; same with the tubing.

I would like a full set of brand new Yamaha hardware if I had the option - but I don't have the funds to purchase it. If I did, I'd get it instantly and upgrade some of my shell hardware with Yamaha equipment too. I would prefer to have everything of one make and totally interchangeable, but there is virtue in having a mixture as well. Sometimes you just can't get what you want out of one make and you need to use others. In my case it's more necessity but I use what I have effectively - it just requires a little careful planning and brainpower.

I have the Tama 2 legged lever glide and it is stable as anything. Pretty heavy as well. Love it.

I have the same on my Tama Starclassic Bubinga drums and even though it's one of the best stable two legged stands I ever used, it still is difficult to beat the stability of a good three legged stand in my opinion.

One kit has all DW 9000 and 5000 series. Another setup is mostly gibralter with some DW and Tama.

I favor best in class; when I wear Levi blue jeans, my shirt, socks, jacket and hat are not likely to be Levi. Same outlook applied to my drums.

DW6000 cymbal stands, DW9000 pedals.
Haven't ordered snare stands yet, DW6300 for the rack tom. Something that stretches from 12" to 15" for snare, maybe the 9000 snare stand.

Add a Yamaha CS750 cymbal stand to this mess. It has to be the best single-braced cymbal stand out there. Peace and goodwill.
