This is a well made, sturdy piece of engineering. Gives limitless set-ups` and clamps are more than sufficient. Maybe a little on the expensive side, but its a true saying, "you only get what you pay for" So much so, I have just purchsed the side extension to go with this and to eliminate the use of all other cymbal stands. This compliments my Tama Starclassic no end. I would definately recomend this product. Well done Tama, yet again!!!!
