    Comments about DW 9700 Straight/Boom Cymbal Stand:

    I am going to order 2 more as soon as I can.
    This is by far the most stable cymbal stand I have ever used. It does not wander away when riding my crash. The toothless tilter is great since I like my cymbals level. You can make the cymbal seat hold your cymbal as tight or as loose as you want without the wingnut loosening or tightening up on you during your heaviest songs.
    DW's customer service is also amazing. The black tilt adjustment handle assembly was broken when i opened the package (likely from shipping). Mark Chavez at DW had a new handle sent out to me the next day at no charge. Dealing with DW was a very pleasant experience.

    Comments about DW 9700 Straight/Boom Cymbal Stand:

    The hardware is solid and built like a tank for the mos part. However, unless you leave your drums in one place all the time or you have a huge touring budget, be leary of the little black handles. You WILL break them and you WON'T be able to adjust your cymbals without them.

    Very durable solid stand

    By Zakk931

    from Independence, KS

    Comments about DW 9700 Straight/Boom Cymbal Stand:

    These stands are extremely well built and sturdy. Mine is currently holding my ride cymbal and I've attached a DW dogbone/small cymbal arm to the end of the boom arm to hold my crash. The stand supports both cymbals (20" medium ride and 19" heavy crash)with ease. My favorite feature is the adjustable cymbal seat. I tend to play my cymbals on the loose side and with these adjustable seats I can play my cymbals loose and keep the wing nuts tight. Also the memory locks are awesome and make set up super quick and simple.

    Comments about DW 9700 Straight/Boom Cymbal Stand:

    This stand is the most heavy duty stand i have ever used.i am using a 24" Paiste Giant Beat Ride,and i crash on it most of the time.And the stand dosent even move.The toothless lilter is a great bonus because i like my cymbals straight up.A lot of other stands cant do that.the features are great to get that feel that you want.It is heavy and can be hard to carry around for shows,but it wont break like most other ones,just the turn handle is plastic so it can break.Overall it is a great stand.i will defenitally be buying more!

      Comments about DW 9700 Straight/Boom Cymbal Stand:

      I just outfitted my entire kit with DW 9000 hardware. Stands, Pedals, etc.

      It cost almost as much as my base shell pack (used 1980s Yamaha Recording Custom) and more than my cymbals (Zildjian Ks).

      This hardware is expensive. The upgrade did improve the sound and playability. It's nice that I can mount heavy, oversized snares and they don't move (much).

      The 9000s are very flexible. I'm not convinced many options produce the best design/sound/durability, but they are there for the people that like lots of customization.

      Guys that are their own roadies might want lighter kit when gigging. Look to a different line (eg 5000, 6000).

      I was surprised at how much the sound of my kit improved. I expected some improvement, but not this much. Seriously, don't "upgrade" your cymbals until after you have heard them on high quality hardware.

      At this price, I'd give it the fifth star if nothing major fails over, say, the next 20+ years (I'm not using it for gigging). Based on reviews and others' experience, it looks like most - not all - of these will hold up that long.

        Comments about DW 9700 Straight/Boom Cymbal Stand:

        I use one of these to hold a 10" tom and a 20" cymbal and one for my 22" ride. The stands don't wobble. I've also used these while touring and have never had a problem with the black handle breaking, but it does stick out when folded. Very heavy stands.

        GGRRReat stand! it is totally solid and the features on it are great. it doesn't even kind of jiggle. amazing. but also take a look at the pearl bc800w, it's as heavy, but cheaper, but it doesn't have features that are as good.

        Good Product.

        By Ckykid1021

        from Edmond, OK

        Comments about DW 9700 Straight/Boom Cymbal Stand:

        I purchased this and am completely satisfied. The memory locks are a definite plus, set up time is greatly reduced and you don't have to worry about the exact positioning. Also, the techlock is a great feature for shows if you have band members who like to move around alot, and accidental bump can occur and loosen the tilter, sending your cymbal and stand floor-ward but with the techlock, it won't happen. I highly recommend this product.

        Comments about DW 9700 Straight/Boom Cymbal Stand:

        They are the only boom stands I know of that stay straight up and don't tilt at and angle. They're the best stands I've used.

        These stands are simply the best for any drummer out there. The options of tilt are endless, where as stands with pre-set locks lack in this field. Heavy duty, looks sharp, the best.

        See all my reviews

        Comments about DW 9700 Straight/Boom Cymbal Stand:

        Excellent cymbal stand! Memory locks on everything (a definite plus), the infinite cymbal adjustment tilter (or whatever they call it) works very nice, and the plastic handle makes it extremely easy to get the tension TIGHT! My only complaint is that the lowest possible position for the cymbal is rather high, I know that with Pearl's you can get extremely low. Such as not the case with this stand, but if you sit somewhat high or if you like your cymbals high, this works fine. I have no problem with it. The price is a 5 which, I remind you, is Average on here. It's worth it, though.

        Comments about DW 9700 Straight/Boom Cymbal Stand:

        This stand is awesome. It's built like a tank, and I figure the only reason you'd need to replace it is if you lost it. You could drop it out of a vehicle on the freeway and it probably wouldn't break. You can mount the biggest, heaviest cymbal you have on this thing, and it's not going to wobble. And my favorite part of this stand is that you can get the cymbal exactly where you want it.
