I just bought some heartbeat cymbals, and I am absolutely pumped. the only thing is.... I have really trashy stands, and I kind of blew the budget on cymbals Any budget friendly cymbal stands that you would recommend? Thanks!
i'll give those a look, thanks!Pearl's 800 Series stands are very reasonable and extremely durable. Straight stands are about seventy bucks, and convertible booms aren't much more.
I use Pearl's 900 Series hardware, which has memory locks, but the 800-level stuff is just as sturdy.
i'll check those out, thanks!Guitar Center’s house brand Sound Percussion are decent. However, no brand of cheap stands will stand up to constant gigging. Setting up and tearing down all the time will wear out cheap stands quickly. If you plan on setting them up at home and rarely moving them, they will be fine. If you’re going to gig, maybe try to find higher quality used stands.
I'm playing rock and worship right now, I'm not gigging yet, and i'd say i'm a pretty heavy hitter! I might just have to spend the extra dollars!I use Yamaha single braced 600 and 700 series stands. All bought used. They'll last me the rest of my life.
But .... a few questions. Are you gigging? What kind of music are you playing? How heavy a hitter are you?
Cheap stands are fine if your kit never moves. And heavy, cheap stands are sometimes more afordable. But, if you're gonna do a lot of setting up and tearing down ..... I'd look at the brand names.
I carried DW 5000 and Tama Titan/RoadPro stands for years ..... but the weight was crazy. I never needed stuff that heavy. Eventually, I switched to Yamaha single braced ..... and they've never let me down.
There's really no "right" answer ..... as long as you buy a major brand. I certainly don't regret my DW or Tama purchases. They served well ..... and when I switched over to Yamaha ..... I sold them all (so I got a good bit of my money back).I'm playing rock and worship right now, I'm not gigging yet, and i'd say i'm a pretty heavy hitter! I might just have to spend the extra dollars!
