  • Best High Hat Stand

    I'll get this under way with my story. Well, the old Pearl stand just bit the dust so I headed to the local store and demoed everything I could get my hands on.
    I ended up buying the Tama Iron Cobra HH905 lever glide stand. WOW, I couldn't believe how much difference a stand could make. It is fast and smooth and the two leg thing makes fitting all the pedals a breeze. What the hell was I putting up with all these years?
    What are you guys putting up with?

    Seriously, I have a Pearl Eliminator hihat stand, and the only thing I could mutter when I first tried it out in the store was "Where have you been all my life?" If this stand was a woman I'd leave my wife for her

        I have a dw5000 hat stand with 2 legs... I tested the dw next to the Pearl. I liked the Pearl better, but went with the DW because it cost less and matched my other dw stuffs.... Ok so flame me.
        I just thought that multiple cams, etc. were a bit much more than necessary for a hat stand....however that thing was smoooooooooth....

        I was coming from a Cannon percussion stand, so either one was an improvement.

          I have a nice older adjustable chain drive Pearl stand on my acoustic set. Since my Yamaha acoustic set has the ol' Pearl DR-110 rack, I "surgically removed" the legs from the stand by drilling the rivets out. That way, I have a legless stand clamped directly to the rack (keeps the floor uncluttered for my double pedal), but with a few nuts and bolts converts easily back into a conventional leg stand.

          The stand I'm using on the V-Pro kit is a generic (Sound Percussion) cheapo, with the legs drilled off and rack mounted just like on my acoustic set. I'm not as fanatical about my hi-hat stand as I am about other things... Like my Roc-N-Soc Nitro-ride throne, which my butt thanks me for every day, and my old Yamaha double pedal that I bought in Japan about 10 years ago.

          I'm sure I could have some benefit from a better, more responsive hi-hat stand, but it serves its purpose for now, and I can't justify the added expense at the moment.

          FWIW, I've always wanted to screw around with a cable-remote (DW?) hi-hat setup on a drum rack. The positioning and angle possibilities are intriguing...

            I have the Axis X hihat. Very well built and smooth as glass. I used an old Rogers hat before this one, and the action is close to identical. I spoke to the owner of the company once and he said that was exactly what they were going for... It is also extremely flexible when setting up (I can have the stand at a 45 degree angle and the pedal and cymbals level) and very light. Being aircraft grade aluminum and all...

                Hell, I thought I was industrious!!!! You got me beat by a mile! Best I ever did was create a remote fixed hi-hat from old spare hardware parts mixed-n-matched.

                You should post a pic of that stand; I'd love to see it!

                            Coming from Australia, I have no idea what the rest of the world calls us. I am assuming that 'bonzer' is an affectionate (???) name for an Aussie? LOL
                            Or did that go right over my head??

                              On topic :

                              I recently switched from an old adjustable Tama stand, to the HH905 and i too was blown away by the performances of the new stand AND the improvement of my old hi-hats. an extra positvie point is the fact the new one weighs a lot less ...

                              Off topic :

                              it would be nice to be able to say about your wive what i just said about the stand, wouldn't it ... (you do know you've got to replace 'hi-hats' with something else, i hope ...)
                              - "Can i kick it?"
                              - "Yes, you can ..."
