After literally shattering an old cheap boom stand and almost losing a brand new $300 China cymbal as a result I decided I needed to invest in much better hardware. This stand seems expensive but I can tell you that it is worth every single penny spent. You will not find a better cymbal stand. PERIOD. Every single adjustment has a memory lock for it which is extremely helpful when setting up. The gearless tilter/tech lock lets you literally get the exact angle on the cymbal that you want and the adjustable cymbal seat is such a great idea. The legs are extremely heavy duty and have the perfect weight to keep this stand in place no matter what. All of the tubing is thicker than any other stand I've owned. Mine is currently holding a 16" Crash, 12" mounted tom, and a 10" splash and the stand never even shudders. I intend on adding a 10" tom eventually and I know that this stand can easily handle it. I could probably add 3 more cymbals to it and this stand would just smile and ask for more and I'm not exaggerating. Don't waste your money on cheap hardware and regret it later anymore. Just bite the bullet and get the DW 9000 series hardware and get it right the first time.
I've had two 9702 DW multiple cymbal stands for about 5 years now and they've held up beautifully. And that's why it was a no-brainer to buy the 9700 recently. When I first bought the 9702's, I couldn't get past the fact that they were HEAVY. So at one point, I purchased a couple of medium-weight PDP stands thinking they'd be easier to lug around. And they were, but they just weren't rugged enough, and I retired them in less than a year. The 9700 series DW stands on the other hand are beautifully made. My 5-year old 9702's still work and look like new. I gig once or twice a month and lug them to rehearsals once or twice a week. No pitted or peeling chrome, no wear other than a few scratches, no failures of any kind. They have been very durable, and they are very stable. I expect the same out of the 9700. I like the infinitely-adjustable tilters and black-plastic release handles. I've read that other drummer have had these handles break, but I've had no trouble with them at all. I like that I they allow me to instantly fine-tune my setup. The 9700 series DW stands are expensive -- the 9700 cost almost three times as much as the one of the pdp's mentioned above, the 9702's, four times as much. But for me, they're worth it. I don't think I'll ever have to replace any of them. They are top-notch.
i just replaced all my cymbal stands with the DW 9700s because they are built like a rock, have infinite adjustability, awesome memory locks, and (my favorite) adjustable cymbal seating. This can greatly increase the longevity of your cymbals because it lets YOU determine how freely the cymbal moves on the stand. For instance, I lay into my crashes and chinas pretty hard so I keep those on the looser side so they move freely when struck while still never EVER coming off the stand. I keep my ride on the tighter side because I usually am only hitting the top of the cymbal and the bell so I want it to be consistantly in the same place. I bought one of these and knew I'd never buy another kind of stand again, I eventually bought 4 more so I have 5 in my setup. They pack up and set up very quickly easily. DW even includes numbered sticker markings so when you take them apart to travel you know what part goes to which stand, and with the memory locks in place you just slide the piece in and tighten. Cuts down 8-10 minutes of my setup time at shows. One of the best equipment purchases I've ever made, hands down.
This stand is almost flawless! It is definately heavy-duty and durable. You won't knock it over, it has memory locks for every adjustment, and it has the DW name and reputation. The only problem can be a big one. The handle for adjusting cymbal pitch/angle is made of plastic. I'm probably like most drummers, where I go from gig to gig and can't afford custom cases. I put all of my hardware in one bag, and these handles break very easily. Then when you get to the gig you can't adjust your stand with a broken handle. I have learned to carry extra parts now, but they cost $6 each, and that can add up. I would recommend using the 5000 series stuff.
This stand is perfect hands down. I needed to replace a few of my cymbal stands after using the same old rogers stands my father gave to me and DW was the way to go. I had great experiences in the past with DW and decided to continue adding to my line of DW hardware. Sturdy, heavy, and strong, all of these describe this stand. From splashes to crashes and rides to chinas, this stand will keep your cymbals in place. Memory locks are a huge plus, I hated having to hold my 22" ride while tightening the bolt, but I no longer have to worry about that! DW does it again!
Wow... talk about a stand that won't let you down. There's memory locks all over this thing, so you can set it up exactly the same every time (if you want to). The tubing is massive, so you could drop this thing off of a cliff and it would be fine. The feet are huge too, so this stand won't rock at all, ever. I only have two issues with it. The first is the price. I know you're getting a top of the line stand with all the bells and whistles, but it costs an arm and a leg. The other thing is that black plastic handle for the cymbal tilter. Mine broke off after a few months from a short fall to the ground. If they revised that and made the handle out of metal or something, this stand would be perfect. Overall, though, there's a reason that most pro drummers use this stand. It's incredible.
