I've had this about one week at the time of writing and have used it for a few rehearsals, no gigs yet. To fit it to a cymbal stand you have to loosen a wing nut and lift a bar then put it around the stand, put the bar back into place and tighten the wing nut. It can be a little tricky to get the washers on the wing nut in the right place but once done it is tight and secure. The angled arms are great for holding percussion. I could fit two cowbells and a wood block on one arm. When I unpacked it I could see that one arm was missing so I contacted Thomann who emailed me back straight away and have posted a new arm to me which should be arriving very soon. Good service! Update - the new arm arrived within a few days, posted from Germany to Scotland. GREAT service!
