Default What is this

Hello all I have a question on a boom stand I picked up at the pawn shop it seems to be a 70-80s model the brand is AWOL and on the bottom there is a interesting pipe bracket for some kind of accessory. What I'm wanting to know is what's the pipe bracket for an can I get replacement parts for it and there is another piece that looks to be broken on the bottom also

Looks to be some sort of an old microphone mount, the threaded kind. The way it comes out with drum key screws. I could be wrong. I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken. How about a pic of the whole thing?

it is an old hi-hat stand....the bracket on the bottom is broken, where the pedal should be, and that tube would be for the spring assembly....

That's what I was thinking . But why would a boom stand have a hi hat on it unless it was a hi hat stand converted to a boom stand :)

looks like an old 1980's tama titan hi hat stand
except the foot board has been removed and the spring assembly has been taken apart.

Wow it does look like that I guess the last owner replaced the top piece with a cymbal boom. one thing il say is this stand is super sturdy I'm planning to un bracket the spring tube and place a different pipe there so I can mount a few grabber clamp booms and make this a multi cymbal stand :) I paid 30$ for this stand and the 80s 18" zilg avidas crash ride at the pawn shop Ty all for the replies and the help TTY

Then you got a great deal.Just remove the spring tube,and clean up that stand with some chrome polish,or believe it or not,coke a cola and some aluminum foil crunched up .The coke and aluminum act as a solvent and a mild abrasive and will remove the dirt and rust,But....NO STEEL WOOL..it will scratch the chrome.

And don't even think about throwing it in the dust bin.

I would never think about throwing this away no offense to the guy that would throw any good working piece away I'm not one of those I call pretty drummers where every piece has to be perfect and match I'm a poor white boy who has to make due with what I can get. when I get done with this stand youl never recognize it was ol pawn shop deal :)

That's correct, it's a Hi-hat stand from Tama Titan series from the mid 80's, the tube is for the pring assembly, but also to adjust the spring tension (hence the thread) and to adjust the height of the pedal. I still got mine after 30 years and it still does job perfectly.
