I?m a heavy hitter, for me ? solid and reliable hardware is a must!! Millenium hardware keeps surprising me with it?s durability and quality for the price. Doesn?t matter whether it is a 22? China or an 8? Splash i have to set up ? all hold nicely.
+ Steady, firm and reliable ? i can play without worrying whether my Crash is gonna come crashing down on my toms during a massive drum fill or a heavy groove.
+ Simple and easy to set up and use.
+ Compact, doesn?t take up much space. I have lots of hardware to move when touring and seting up for a gig, so huge, heavy gear for me is a nightmare.
+ It might be a softer composition of metals or bigger thread pitch, but be careful with those tension locks, be careful no to over-tighten, or they will ware out pretty quick! The locks are good so no need for maximum tighening. But that goes for all gear, pretty much! Be gentle :)
+ I, personally, wouldn?t recommend stacking these boom stands with extra clamps and boom arms. You?ll need a heavy duty base for that. Overloading these will result in dents and lack of steadiness.
To buy or not to buy? ? Yes! Definately worth investing in!
