I've used Tama hardware forever it seems. Back in the day of Imperialstar Series, the Titan Series and now Roadpro series. Along the way I've also used Gibralter, Ludwig & DW. It seems that many drummers equate the weight of the stand with durability & quality. Yes, I know it's true that lighter stands will not support drums & cymbals properly. Especially if you are a heavy hitter as I've been accused. But, more important is the quality of materials matched to work together and used in the proper context (i.e. A single braced or flat-based stand usually won't meet the requirements of most rockers. Remember the sway of Ringo's kit. That won't cut it anymore!). Of note, a heavy stand must also have nylon joints that can support the tubing. Roadpro is a great blend of properly sized/weighted tubing and strong nylon joints. While memory-locks can be helpful, I've found that many designs rely on the memory-lock to make up for poor nylon at the joints that won't grip the tubing. The Roadpro line is a perfect blend of all the components. The fact is Roadpro stands are simple and replacement parts are readily available (though I've yet to have to replace any part). I'm a working musician and probably break down, and setup my kit more then most (no less then 4 times a week). The situations I play in require not only great function of my gear, but it must always look good on stage (studio, lounge and main casino stages). Roadpro has never failed me! I mount not only cymbals but toms and various percussion items off my Roadpro stands. Always hold solid and have proven to be VERY durable. I highly recommend these stands to all drummers. Thanks again Tama. You've kept me rockin' for years!

I think this stand is flimsy and doesn't represent much bang for the buck given it's actual performance and reliability. The minute you start hanging boom rods or clamps it gets the urge to dump over on you. It comes with no types of memory locks on the tubes. No offense, but go with the Gibraltar 9600 series where you won't need to babysit your stands. If you never put a clamp on this stand, attach a cymbal rod or use a 24 inch heavy ride this stand might pass, but if this is what Tama calls top of the line I need to stop by the factory and show them some stands. This is a major undermatch for the Starclassic series and definitely not a road worthy stand. Given the price point drummers can do a whole lot better.

GREAT STAND

By mr3miguelito

from Calexico CA

See all my reviews

Comments about Tama HC73BWM Roadpro Boom Stand:

I have had 5 of these great stands and after 6 years I am still using 3 of then and they have never failed on me. I have used them for just about anything, from a simple boom stand for a crash, ride, or tom stand, to taking it apart and beating people with it.. no the other 2 did not break our tour van caught fire and they happen to be in there . you will have no problem with the stand. there a little over priced but thats because you wont have to buy another one for many years to come...

Comments about Tama HC73BWM Roadpro Boom Stand:

The Tama HC73BWM Roadpro boom stand is a very good solid stand with great features. The tilter is ideal for making quick adjustments though it does move a little while being played. It is a good stand for active, hard-hitting drummers; and I am very satisfied with this stand

Comments about Tama HC73BWM Roadpro Boom Stand:

As a touring musician, i need something that can stand up to constant beatings. I bought seven of these stands and wasnt that impressed. no memory locks, so my tech would always shortin the hieght by 2-3". the wide spred legs look like it holds well, but looks are deciving. Sorry but i think dw makes the best stand, but if your new to the touring game and think theses are a good stand, dont waste your money, personally, i would have rather wasted my funds on pdp 900s stands then these

A Nice Medium Weight Stand

By Springless Chicken

from Kansas City

See all my reviews

Comments about Tama HC73BWM Roadpro Boom Stand:

The HC73BWN is a nice medium weight stand. It is not nearly as heavy as previous Tama hardware lines, but it is as heavy duty as Tama gets. The DW and Gibraltar 9000 series are both considerable heavier, but they are a little more expensive too. For local garage band work these stands ought to get the job done. These stands do have issues at the joints and this is mainly due to the legacy configuration of bolt tension without additional memory lock devices. I would not put large or heavy cymbals on these stands as they will develop wobble over time. If you are doing a lot of heavy gigging you might think about the Gibraltar 9000's which are in a whole different class. For the local clubs and a couple of gigs a month this stand will probably be a fine toy for the money.

Comments about Tama HC73BWM Roadpro Boom Stand:

These are the only stands I use! I set up and tear down my kit at least 4 times a week, and they have never let me down. It's true that they don't have memory locks, but I've never needed them- these stands have held up extremely well under the abuse I've dished out, and you can mark it with a Sharpie to know where you like it set up everytime. I highly recommend these stands!

Great Stand

By thunderhorse

Comments about Tama HC73BWM Roadpro Boom Stand:

This is the most solid stand I have ever encountered. I have used both pearl and gibralter stands but this holds up better than the rest. Slap a 22 inch ride on one and crash on it and the stand wont move at all. Tama makes perfection yet again

Fantastic.

By Drewbie

Comments about Tama HC73BWM Roadpro Boom Stand:

This boom stand is great. I have one and I'm running two toms and a 16" Crash off of it and it performs EXCELLENTLY. The toms are nice and secure, and the Quick-Set Tilter works great for precise placement. For the money, you can't go wrong with Tama.

excellent

Comments about Tama HC73BWM Roadpro Boom Stand:

Great versatility. I can hang cymbals rather than the usual way, creating more room for other cymbals. Also extends so far, a cymbal can be mounted almost 8 feet in the air, pointless, but this stand can do so much. Great as a straight or boom.

    Comments about Tama HC73BWM Roadpro Boom Stand:

    I have used these with 2 Tama kits (a Superstar & a Starclassic) & am very pleased with the quality, stability & looks of these stands. The tilter works beautifully to get just the right position for my cymbals & are the upright is stout enough to mount an extra tom on without any concerns. They also work great as straight stands when necessary. Therefore, no need to buy both- just buy boom stands & the versatitlity is built in!

    Comments about Tama HC73BWM Roadpro Boom Stand:

    It looked good when I took it out, but when I put it up the "quick set tilter" seemed weak and when I put a 18in. crash on it the "quick set tilter" just gave out, at least it has a long boom arm?

    Comments about Tama HC73BWM Roadpro Boom Stand:

    This stand is perhaps one of the greatest stands there is. It's veeery sturdy. The feet are fairly large, double-braced legs, amazing tilt system, overall very well-built and sturdy. I'm now upgrading ALL my hardware to Tama RoadPro. I'd also recommend the Tama Iron Cobra bass pedal. A great buy! Tama RoadPro rocks!

    Tama Roadpro Cymbal Stand

    from Sun Prairie, Wisconsin

    Comments about Tama HC73BWM Roadpro Boom Stand:

    I have 5 of these bad boys and will buy more when I add more crashes. Tama hardware is excellent just like their drums. I have 18" crashes on 4 of them. On the 5th, I have my 11 x 14 floor tom, a 10" splash, and a 17" crash with no problems. These are solid, tight stands that are built to last.

    Comments about Tama HC73BWM Roadpro Boom Stand:

    Well it's a cymbal stand. There isn't much to be said about it. I have about 4 of these and I've had them for a good 10 years now and they've never failed me. Although I don't advise using two stands and hanging laundry on them like my mum did because they bend.

    Comments about Tama HC73BWM Roadpro Boom Stand:

    I used to have all DW 9700 cymbal stands, They kept breaking and just crapping out so I went with one of these bad boys. Yeah it lacks mem locks, thats a bummer, but thats the only downside. Its lighterweight but still just as sturdy as a dw 9000. I like the black knob on top its so much easyer to take off and looks cool. The new toothless tilter is also a plus. I kinda like not having mem locks because now its not a hassle to change the height of everything. I also like the boom to straight stand conversion. Def worth the money. Half the price as a DW 9700 with the same toughness. TAMA ROADPRO and IRON COBRA hardware is the best imo.
