Well I just got a DW8000 2 leg hi hat stand to replace my DW5000 3 leg stand. I was playing barefoot and I smashed my pinky toe into the 3 legger for the last time. I really like my DW5000 but I got a great deal on an 8000 on ebay so here I go. Hopefully my double bass will be easier too. Anyone have the 8000 series hi hat stand? If so whaddya think?
