Very very nice kits barry, i like the vintage style and planning to purchase dw 6000 hardware, what do you think of the 6500 hihatstand? how sturdy is it it, it looks like it could break very easily, and how is the feel playing it, is it accurate?

thanks in advance!

My 6500 hihat stand is one of the older, first generation style ones. DW has changed the way the footboard and the legs are mounted on their newer ones, so I can not say how they are for feel. This one that I have is very sturdy, and has a really good feel to it. I switched the hinge for one of those delta bearing types, but I have not noticed a significant difference. I usually use this stand with the el sabor hats which are pretty heavy, and the stand holds up very well. One complaint that I do have about this stand is that it does wobble a bit, probably due to the way the legs and foot board sit. I am not a real heavy hitter, so this stand is more than sturdy enough for me. If a person was to really pound on it, I don't know how it would hold up, still, I would strongly recomend it to anyone looking for a good quality, lightweight sturdy hi hat stand.

Here is a drivers seat view of the kit, and the stand.



You can see the cannister throne, of which I swapped the original seat for a roc n soc.

This holds all of the 6000 series hardware, with room to spare, and is almost as comfortable as my couch.

If you do decide to pick one up, or try one out, let me know what you think of it.

I have a big kit but I like playing small ones so I set me DW up on a nice day to look at it. Looks a bit weird cos I didn't play it so some of the angles are rather odd. This was last summer so a few bits have changed since (lovely white reso now! yayy!)


Normally a 7 piece

I love that finish, very nice. I thing the advantage if having a large kit is you always have the option to set up a smaller one. ;-)

All the great DW kits very nice!

You need to upload them to a server somewhere and then link to the pics.

Search the web for free photo hosting, they are all over the place. You ISP may even offer it.
