Tama Hardware is amazing. Every piece of this set is a masterpiece, good construction, good quality. I used 900 series pedals and Hi-hat stand before, but there are no big differences. Tha snare stand is stable and easy to adjust the hight and the position. Good improvement is the fast thighten system on the tip of the cymbal stands. Easy to change cymbals whithout turning the knob like 1000 times. This set is a good choice for a reasonable price!
