Cymbal stands, at their very core, protect your carefully chosen cymbals. It takes a while to settle on a cymbal that suits your needs, so choosing a stand to protect it is just as important. When you set up your kit, you'll want an optimal position for your ride and crash. The base of your cymbal stand, often equipped with rubber grips, keeps your preferred position set in place on a variety of surfaces. You won't want to resist giving your cymbal a heavy crash so with a wide boom base and sturdy grips, you'll be able to practice for hours on end and not have to get up to move your stand. Depending on your cymbal size, you'll want to choose an appropriate brace. Double braced legs are ideal for heavier and larger cymbals, while the more pocket-friendly single bar legs can easily handle a lighter and thinner effects cymbal. The array of adjustable components in the braces allows you to figure out the perfect position for your playing style. Easy access allows you to really power through a solo or fill with little effort. Look for counterweights when you really need your cymbal to stay put in an upright position. They simply act as a balance to ensure your cymbal doesn't go crashing after an aggressive play. Both boom and pivot stands can be equipped with this handy feature. Your final consideration is the mount itself. A felt washer is the key to saving your cymbal from metal on metal contact while being held down by an easy-to-adjust wing-tip washer. Some drummers prefer a looser fasten for a more bellowing cymbal sound, while others choose to tighten it to the fullest for a crisper feel. Durable cymbal stands not only helps you play comfortably, but also can influence your overall sound. The range of adjustable capabilities allows you to place your cymbal perfectly and the screw top can be easily tightened to your personal specs. They probably aren't your first thought when purchasing a kit but are definitely a major part of an optimal drumming experience.
