I had a lot of help on these forums that helped me decide what kind of crash stand to get.

So now I need to know what a good snare stand would be to get? I have no knowledge on hardware parts. :confused:

Tama Air-ride,,,

Any middle to high-end stand will do. Check Ebay for used ones.

DW9100 is a perfect snare stand. When I get my aluminum DW I won't trust it sitting on anything else.

Big Dog trust me these guys own the hardware market. they were part of the tama company i believe. then split made the same products(nearly) but cheaper.i hope one day they move into cymbals. and whole kits

I have a Pulse snare stand. lol. Honestly though, it really isn't bad! It has a ball joint and can go pretty high and it's really heavy duty and double-braced.

Any high end companies snare stand will probably work just fine.

Gibraltar makes a better snare stand than Tama. so does Sonor.

titan > roadpro

i know most of you guys are too young to remember... but roadpro specs used to be the "budget" line called mercury.

for the price yea its ok ~ or you can buy titans off of ebay like me and laugh at the current roadpro :lol:

I have a Pulse and it actually isn't bad at all. Stole it from the little kid down the street. I also have a super old Ludwig Atlas I think that isn't bad, and a newer Ludwig. I'd go to GC or a local music store and check a bunch out to see what suits you best.

If you stole it thats ****ing wrong and if your lying to try and be "cool" thats dumb too. So either way for you it's a lose lose situation.

Ebay man, get a nice used 9300 DW stand. I wouldn't trust my Brass or Edge on anything else. I gotta add too, the gearless tilter is the best thing on this stand. The stand doesn't interfere with a DBP and it will get that basket right where you need it! 5000 series is quite good too.

Owned a Tama RoadPro stand too, really nothing special about it. Got a good deal on it at the time so that was cool.

and perfect for the beginner with a budget..at $129...I didn't see him say anywhere he was a beginner on a budget... and even if he was, in the world of snare stands, there isn't a huge spectrum on price. Even a RoadPro is something like 80. Why not spend the extra 50 bones and get something amazing? It's not like these kids can't get jobs either. 14 year olds can find jobs, and if he's younger than that, well, tough luck.

Yeah after looking back on the money I've put into my drumming hobby, and knowing what I know now, I would get a setup that just barely gets by and then upgrade piece-wise to exactly what I wanted.

I actually upgraded my hardware before most of my cymbals. No way I was putting a $200 crash on a pacific 700 stand. I needed security!

EDIT- Its kind of like building a luxury house on a sub-par foundation. Its bound to fail in the end. If you plan on getting high-end equipment in the future, get the hardware that will stand up to it, and last for decades.

One shouldn't compromise when it comes to snare stands. I recommend the high end DW stands.

I've known him for 9 years and his mom bought him a kit and bitched the salesperson into giving them extra hardware so he has two of each stands he got. His brother plays bass in my band too. He said we could have it. Didn't mean actually thiefing that beast, my bad bro should have put it better. I wouldn't steal and especially not from people that have been so good to me like this family.

Haha nice, our bassist just leaves his bass here so I play on that sometimes. (He does use our bass cab though) He needs to ****in' save and buy one because this one is way to big to lug around.
