Title: Rdcommendations for standalone hi-hat stand
Post by: Haggis-man on August 05, 2012, 03:08:05 PM
Hi all,

I'm looking to get a new (free standing) hi-hat stand to replace the 2Box one and I'd like to know if anyone has something to recommend under the £100 mark?

I've been looking at various Gibraltar models and also the Big Dog heavy duty model. The latter gets very good reviews and is only around the £70 mark.

Any input appreciated.

Cheers

My drumshop ordered the Drumcraft legless standard for me for 69 euro. I will take it and test it for the forum here. Just hold your scottish horses, my lord.

Hi murgen,

Thanks, although I am looking for a stand with legs as I don't want to clamp the hi hat stand to the rack.

Cheers

Right, I misunderstood.

Interesting that Murgen mentioned DrumCraft. I have their top of the line 8 series HH stand and it's rock solid and totally heavyweight - and sells for about the same as low-level Pearl hardware. I recently added a 6 series snare stand and an entry-level 4 series cymbal stand and am very impressed with the quality - especially for the price.
I would certainly check out a 4 Series or 6 Series HH stand.

I bought a Gibralter stand and it works nicely. On the tag it says: 6607 G/B HVY DBL Braced HI Hat Stand. http://www.steveweissmusic.com/product/gibraltar-6607-hi-hat-stand/hi-hat-stands.

I tried a Yamaha stand but it seemed that the diameter of the metal rod to which the hi-hat clutch attaches was too thin and that caused it to trigger the closed "chick" sound when releasing the pedal.

Cheers for the feedback guys, I'll probably go for the Gibraltar as I can get that locally.
