The Gibraltar 8600 series stands are an excellent option for any gigging drummer who wants to cut down on the weight of their hardware without sacrificing quality. I was more interested in the weight factor than the aesthetics, but I do appreciate the retro look of these stands. Like the flat-base stands of the '60s, these are simple and lightweight, with a distinct vintage vibe. The similarities end there. The 8600 series cymbal stands are sturdy and solid, with all the upgraded features that you would expect from modern drum hardware (like nylon bushings, flawless machining, solid, quality wing nuts, etc.) as well as some premiums unusual for this price point (brake tilters, captive wing nuts). I have gigged with these stands several times, and they have been utterly reliable. They may not be ideal for mounting rack toms, or for the heaviest-handed of bashers, or for crowded setups with many cymbal stands where the flat bases might start to crowd in on each other, but they would be perfect for 90% of the gigging drummers I see out there. I have used both the Gibraltar 8600 and DW 6000 series flush-base hardware- while I love my DW 6000 hi-hat, the Gibraltar 8600 cymbal and snare stands are similar quality for a fraction of the price.
I love the light weight & quality construction of this flat base boom stand. I have a 24 inch bass drum & the low profile of the legs on this stand allow me to position a ride cymbal exactly where it is comfortable for me. It also looks great with my vintage set & reminds me of the "good old days" when playing was for fun,not breaking your back,Good job gibraltar!
