I needed a boom stand for holding my ride cymbals. I was expecting for this price that this stand had poor qaulity and didn't last, I was really surprised to see that this stand has really good quality and it is really sturdy!
I have two ride cymbals, and both are heavy, specially my paiste power ride signature is really really heavy! I can even try to crash my ride (which is really hard due to its weight), and the stand doesn't even move! It is really sturdy and can hold hard hitters and heavy cymbals!
The attachment (wingnut) for the cymbal could be better, it is made of plastic, and for my experience this tends to ware really fast with time, metal with felt would be better for sure.
Nevertheless as a good quality cymbal stand and a sturdy one, for this price you can't go wrong!
