This is a Gibraltar stand, so it can hold a tank. Literally. (Well, no, not literally, but almost.) Compatible (and also comes with) Gibraltar memory clamps, so setting it up can be pretty fast. But beware! The stand got a facelift from the company, so to use it in a low position might prove tricky. I ordered one for a ride (I like to have it low, and aiming upwords and towards the drumthrone. With this, I had to fabricate a method to do it. It can hold my ride and with some clamps and boom arms, it can hold additional crashes or even a small-to-medium tom too. But to have it in a low position is... well, tricky. Admittedly, I'm only 5'8", so this might not be a problem for you, but you have to watch out for this. In every other aspect, this is one of the best stands out there. Solid, reliable, so would I recommend it? Absolutely!
