- Very Fine, Light Stand

Great stand! It's about 39" at its max height, folds up to about 27" or so. The legs are about 12" center to tip; no one mentions they fold UP for a nicely compact unit, FLAT for use as a nifty flat base stand, but can also fold OUT BEYOND FLAT for use as a lightweight tripod-type stand! Very versatile.The stand is single-braced and built more like a medium-heavy music stand. You can hang a heavy 24" ride on it (I do, mine's 2600g [5-3/4 lb.]) and it's stable. Like any stand you hang much weight on, you set this one up so the cymbal hangs out directly over a leg. I can bash my big ride when set up properly, with no fear of accident. I might put a sandbag on the outside legs if I was playing an outdoor gig in gusty wind, but the stand is sturdy enough otherwise. The single extension tube is 5/8" (about 16mm) diameter and can raise a cymbal up to about 50" (1.3m), which would be OK for a crash for an average-size drummer, maybe a bit more, depending on how you like your crash set up. Rides or others will be no problem for nearly anyone. I would like to hang a 10" splash on a grabber arm to the left over my BD, using this stand as a ride stand, and I have no doubt that will work. The stand comes with a boom about 14" long or so. For most, that's fine, but there are 18" booms available as well and the extra weight in back would likely add to stability if questioned. All the knobs and joints are first-rate with plastic and the clamp. The ratchet tilters are very nice and secure, and the boom rides down inside the extension tube, making the thing very compact when folded for transport/storage. The chrome is great, maybe a bit easier to scratch than average. All in all, a very fine stand for most, at a reasonable price. Not a rock stand, but fine for the masses... Buy with confidence!
