Sturdy but not too heavy. Well made, and infinitely adjustable. Feels stable even when you're hitting the cymbal hard. The boom disappears into the centre tube when transporting, or it can be used as a conventional cymbal stand, so it's versatile. A good all-rounder.
This is a great compact boom stand. The double braced legs make it very steady. Build quality is what you would expect from Sonor - industry leading. The design feature I particularly like is that the short boom arm slides down into the stand when packing away - very tidy. All in all a great stand worthy of my prized ride cymbal.
