While all the focus might be on those shiny discs at the top of your kit they wouldn’t be able to sing the way they do without a reliable cymbal stand. Budget cymbal stands are generally lighter weight than their professional counterparts but can be a cost effective way of adding extra parts to your kit. Do you really need an expensive top of the range stand to hold that tiny splash you just chose? The Mapex Tornado range is a great budget cymbal stand option.
As you go up the ranges with stands they get more sturdy and more easily adjustable so that even the most demanding drummer can get the setup they require. The Pearl 900 series boom stands comes with gyro lock technology allowing you to position your cymbal with the greatest of ease.
Gretsch 8700 series stands feature a flat base design that combines the looks of vintage hardware with the reliability you would expect from modern hardware designs.
For a good value all rounder that won’t let you down we recommend the Mapex 600 Mars Series boom stand. Sturdy and reliable without breaking the bank.
