I need hardware pack advice


I just bought a Slingerland vintage '70 kit and need HW. I'm think $300ish and have seen the Gibraltar 5600 and the DW 3000 stuff. Comments, ideas, or anything else I should be looking at?

Dixon hardware is built by the same company that builds for Gibraltar, Cannon Worldmax and a few others including some pieces for Ludwig and Dixon is usually quite a bit less money then the rest.

Ludwig also makes an awesome flat-based stand for cheap (Ludwig LT126CS, not the new expensive Atlas stuff). It's very light and pretty sturdy, I wouldn't put anything over 3500g on it at crazy angles too long just because the thread size is smaller, but it's cheap, light and awesome.
