Comments about Gibraltar Flat-Base Snare Stand with Gearless Basket Tilter:
(NOTE: Although this is still listed as having a "gearless basket tilter", Gibraltar has recently updated the design to incorporate a fine-tooth tilter after complaints about slippage with the gearless tilter. I spent a week trying to figure out why the stand I received from Guitar Center had a toothed tilter, but finally had to contact Gibraltar directly because GC couldn't seem to get it together to figure out what the deal was...) 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 stands are sturdy and solid, with all the upgraded features that you would expect from modern drum hardware, like nylon bushings, flawless machining, solid wing nuts, etc. These stands are sturdy enough for all but the heaviest-hitting bashers. I have gigged with these stands several times now, and they have been utterly reliable, and made lugging my gear that much easier.
