  • Smooth and simple...

    As reviewed by Mike on 8/21/2008

    Before getting the 6500 stand I used a DW 9000 series hi-hat and was just "okay" with its performance. The foot plate angle was always a little too steep for my taste and it had some stability issues. But the 6500 has fixed all my hi-hat issues. It's a lightweight and sturdy litte stand, the footplate angle is perfect, and the low profile legs sit low enough on the ground that mic stands and cymbal stands can easily go right over them. Definitely worth the dollars...

  • All the quality, less the weight.

    As reviewed by Guy Incognito on 3/3/2011

    I've been using a DW 6500 for over a year now. I bought for gigging purposes as a lighter-weight alternative to my beloved (but bulky) Tama Iron Cobra Lever Glide hihat. I loved the smooth action on my Iron Cobra but was sick of lugging around a 65-pound hardware bag full of unnecessary double-braced monster stands, so I scrimped and saved and gradually replaced all my hardware with lightweight retro flush-base stands. I was blown away by my DW 6500- the offset direct pull mechanism is fluid and responsive, and the overall feel is reliably solid and sturdy despite the low-mass construction. My only criticism echoes a fellow reviewer's in that the footplate connection is not ideal (the footplate is supported by a bar that attaches to the stand base via a drum key-requiring bolt) but the most recent version of this stand uses a radius rod fixture instead. I would recommend Gibraltar 8600 series flush-base cymbal and snare stands over the DW 6000 versions since they are similarly excellent quality at a fraction of the price, but I can say without reservation that the DW 6500 hihat is worth every penny.

  • Not too bad!

    As reviewed by Mark Serbian on 10/7/2008

    The hat works great. Doesn't weigh much, goes up and down like it's supposed to, has lots of adjustment possibilities - in short, it behaves like it's older brothers. Only less expensive. The only issue I have is with the footplate connection at the base of the stand. It's a tad hard to negotiate if you're in a hurry. Other than that, I'd recommend this to pretty much anybody who needs a good, professional stand that doesn't weigh much or take up too much room.
