Use; I use six to eight cymbals; varying between crashes, chinas, splashes, bells, stacks ? the whole lot, depending on the gig. So, using 6-8 cymbal stands on the stage takes up way too much space and time. Current solution ? multi clamps and boom arms!
Pros; + I can?t image a solution more compact and mobile for touring and regular gigs. + very solid and reliable + can hold bigger diameter bars, such as high toms and floaters, thus converting a heavy duty cymbal stand into a universal! + high quality metal composite and locks, i?m yet to see a broken one!
Cons; - being able to hold heavier things, it comes with a tempation to overload the host stand, so you have to be careful not to dent the host stand, making it less stable.
Summary; To buy or not to buy? ? deffinately Yes! It?s a sure, tested thing, tried and proven to do the job.
For bigger set-ups i consider buying the Millenium Rack, but that makes setting up a bit trickier and heavier for transporting. It would save on space, but not on time. At the moment ? steady boom stands, combined with multi clamps and Millenium boom arms is the easiest solution. Set it up backstage, put the cymbals on and save time on pre-gig stage mess! :)
