Who do you think makes a hardware line that best hits the "sweet spot" in terms of price and performance? Let's keep it simple and limit it to cymbal, snare and hi-hat stands, and thrones. I'm not curious about the toughest or some such. For example, I very much like my Tama Roadpro series gear but it's far from the least expensive stuff out there. Rather, who do think offers reasonably solid gear that is dependable, functional, easy to use, IOW it just plain works, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg or break your back lifting it?
