    Comments about DW 6500 Ultralight Hi-Hat Cymbal Stand:

    When I bought this hi hat stand I had two things in mind. First was completing my recent purchase of a pre-owned DW Jazz Series drum set with the appropriate hardware and second I needed to lighten the load. Carrying around heavy duty, double braced hardware was a struggle. Not only is the load much lighter, the cymbals sound and actually feel better. My guess is, the rigid stand was hampering the cymbals' movement thus restricting their sound projection and feel. So far I'm pleased.

      its specialized

      By Griffin

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about DW 6500 Ultralight Hi-Hat Cymbal Stand:

      Got it to play bebop/postbop jazz with a little 4pc kit, and its EXCELLENT for that. It's lightweight, simple, sturdy, and has a flush base, which will make your cymbals sound better; more sustain, range, clearer bell.BUT: I started using it for rock, metal gigs where I was hitting really hard, really punishing this thing, and fell apart. Rubber feet come off, screws stripped, "baseplate" thing totally broke off. Also had minor beef with the heelplate being too thick, so its actually higher than the center of the pedal, which only became a problem when playing harder.Bottom line: this isn't a heavy duty stand, don't try to use it like one. You must have discipline to use it appropriately. Great for soft, cymbal-based playing.

      Comments about DW 6500 Ultralight Hi-Hat Cymbal Stand:

      I play jazz, and wanted a lightweight, portable stand that would hold up. We'll have to see how it does over the long haul but so far I think this is a great stand for the right person and for the right use. Each foot has screw-style spikes that can come out enough to grab even the thinnest of rugs, or they can retract if you are on a floor that you do not want to damage. This stand does not go up a high as many, but if you way a 18 or 20 inch BD and sit medium to low you will be fine - no problem. The stand is light and folds up nicely. It is built very well and you can stop on it w/o fear of it falling over or taking too much abuse - it can take it. Another feature I like is that the clutch has a drum lug on the inside portion of the top cymbal that you can tighten such that the inside screw cannot work its way loose. Overall, I think this stand will be a winner for me, and I have a feeling it will last a good long while with proper care.

      complicated and poorly built

      By Yoyo-FRYtR

      from San Francisco, NY

      Comments about DW 6500 Ultralight Hi-Hat Cymbal Stand:

      Spring tension adjustments are all or nothing... bad feel... hard to fold up due to uneven materials...rubber legs fall off all the time... velcro on base too strong making it difficult to move around on carpeted surfaces... many adjustments require a drum key... to expensive. AVOID.

      Vintage look, modern quality

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about DW 6500 Ultralight Hi-Hat Cymbal Stand:

      Great hi-hat stand. Huge improvement over the previous (2 legged) dw flat-based hi-hat stand. The only choice for a gigging drummer that wants the vintage look but modern, road-worthy construction. I toured for about a year and a half w/this stand and never had a single problem.

      Great stand, but not the best for double pedals

      By Daniel_C

      from Charlotte, NC

      Comments about DW 6500 Ultralight Hi-Hat Cymbal Stand:

      I got this a little while ago, and I love it, it is very sturdy and light. It is great if you don't like a whole bunch of stuff around your feet, but it makes you put the double pedal a little behind it, it wont make a difference if you only play with the double pedal, but switching would be a little harder.
