Some have said that the stand is too heavy. This is the exact reason that I chose this stand. But when I opened the box I was surprised when it really wasn't that heavy. Don't get me wrong it is heavy... Just not as heavy as I thought it would be based on other reviews. It weighs less than most snare drums. It is a very strong stand with unlimited options for positioning. My snare weighs about 20lb and does not wobble with the boom extended all the way. Call me crazy but I think my snare actually sounds better with this stand. My last stand would bounce a little when I struck the snare but this stand stays still allowing all the energy from my sticks to to be focused into the snare rather than the stand. This will be my stand for life. It's going to be hard to find an upgrade to this stand.

There are at least two other users on here who had my exact problem as me. The bolt-hole at the base of the basket, which you use to adjust the pitch of the snare, is smooth. The threads have been stripped out after breaking-down and setting-up this stand for 120 shows, approximately. I specifically bought this stand so this wouldn't happen, and ironically, this stand had the shortest life of all stands I've used.
It gives you false confidence that it is durable. I like it's looks.
While the overall stand is durable, the metal they used for threading is not.

Comments about DW 9300 Heavy Duty Snare Drum Stand:

Excfellent Stand and can angle the drum in any way..but the platic adjuster gets stripped and the adjuster handle falls off. i've fixed it many times with the same broken results.. now using a pair of pliers to loosen it.. will hope they upgrade this item or will be forced to buy another brand. very disappointing esp comin from DW.. was really suprised..

Comments about DW 9300 Heavy Duty Snare Drum Stand:

I have a 5 year old 9300 and love it, so much so I recently purchased a second one for my travel kit but had to return it. On the new one basket alignment is such that the rubber pads on the claw ends bang up against the side of my knees. My old one was aligned where one claw faced towards me with the other two towards the toms. This eliminated interference with the knees. In order to use the new stand I have to play bow legged. Additionally, out of the box, the memory locks were installed backwards, which I had to correct. Not a big deal, but something you should not have to do with a top of the line stand. So, definitely some manufacturing oversight and I am puzzled as to why DW would alter the basket alignment in such a way. Did they test it with drummers before hand? Puzzling. If the basket was properly aligned I'd rate it a 5 but given it is unusable, at least for me, a solid 1.

    Comments about DW 9300 Heavy Duty Snare Drum Stand:

    I have been playing drums for 59 years and I am still playing 6 nights a week.This stand is sturdy as can be.I extended the arm out all the way and brought the feet in to a smaller foot print and the snare is stable in any location I tried.This has given me so much more room for me and the double bass pedal and the hi hat.I have never had a perfect feeling setup until now.This stand is well worth the money and is sturdy and well built.

    Comments about DW 9300 Heavy Duty Snare Drum Stand:

    It all works great, many people seem to have problems but of setting up many times, I never had it fail or come lose. I only fold up the legs and take off the basket, the removable basket is very useful. Can easily change to a back up snare between shows if necessary.

    Best, most versatile stand you can buy

    By bleedrums

    from Phoenix, AZ

    Comments about DW 9300 Heavy Duty Snare Drum Stand:

    I own two 9300's and have been using the 9300 since my first DW kit purchase in 2001. It has withstood the rigors of many gigs over the years without a single issue. It's sturdy, and infinitely adjustable so I can fine tune the drum position exactly where I need it, no other snare stand can do that. Other drummers I tech for love the 9300 for all the same reasons. If you need to accommodate a smaller snare opt for the 9303 which is specifically designed for auxiliary snares and smaller drums. If you have issues with a DW product like another reviewer here, contact their customer service, they are great folks and will bend over backwards to assist you with their products.

    only one drawback

    By drewbones

    from virginia

    Comments about DW 9300 Heavy Duty Snare Drum Stand:

    This is by far the greatest snare stand I own. I have three (the other two are tama rock stands) and this one blows the other two away. The precision in placement of your snare drum alone makes this an amazing snare stand. The only drawback is that it won't hold anything smaller than a 13 inch snare. So if your looking to hold a practice pad, or a 12 inch tom or smaller this won't work.

    Comments about DW 9300 Heavy Duty Snare Drum Stand:

    Had this for about 1 year. Always trusted DW use their pedals, stands, etc. This stand still looks new has never been abused, rarely adjusted and when I went to adjust the basket the pot metal threads stripped out of the adjuster. Rest of the stand is like new and it is now useless. Had to duct tape it for a gig. Never thought I'd need another snare stand after buying this. Had cheap stands last longer. Very disappointed and going back to Tama or Gibraltar.

    Comments about DW 9300 Heavy Duty Snare Drum Stand:

    For being so incredibly hefty, the DW 9300 Snare Stand allows even the most minute adjustments. Your snare will sit gently in the basket, but hold as firmly as you'd imagine. It'll seat the incredible Hulk. But comfortably. While it's strong and versatile, it's also a nice piece to own if you're building a set as a hobbyist. Whatever you use it for, you won't need to buy another one.

    A beast, weight-wise....and hard to set....

    By Greg-7NBDS

    from Charleston, WV

    Comments about DW 9300 Heavy Duty Snare Drum Stand:

    This is probably one of the most "over-built" snare stands on the market. It could support a small block V-8 if it had to. Unfortunately, in their zest to give customers "what they think they want", DW has burdened us with a very heavy, cumbersome, difficult to adjust, space-eating monster. I'm replacing all my 9000 series hardware with 6000 series; my back just can't take the strain of hoisting all this weight into the truck anymore......

    Best Snare Stand Ever!

    By PrOpAiN

    from FL

    Comments about DW 9300 Heavy Duty Snare Drum Stand:

    This is by far the best Snare Stand I've ever owned. It is without a doubt "Heavy Duty", and is well worth the money. If you're looking for a fully functional, fully adjustable, Road Ready Snare Stand with all the bells and wistles, than this is the one.

    Comments about DW 9300 Heavy Duty Snare Drum Stand:

    Well, like everyone else has mentioned, this thing is a beast. Very heavy, very sturdy. As long as the boom isn't fully extended your snare won't budge. Having a rock solid platform for your snare feels *great*.Is it probably overkill and brutally heavy for transporting? Yep. Is it still a killer peice of gear? Yep. Is it worth the money? Yeah, I think so.

        Comments about DW 9300 Heavy Duty Snare Drum Stand:

        I unfortunately bought two of these last year. After 8-10 snare swaps the basket nut stripped on one. Barely fits 13" deep snare, only by removing memory lock. The back up stand now has a top end wobble from slop in the adjuster. I can't adjust this without removing the snare, even then it seems rough and awkward. It is very top heavy for a snare stand and is heavier than it needs to be overall, not any more stable, just more weight to carry to the car. Spent more for a stand to last 10 years, didn't get 2 years from either one purchased, and that was mostly studio use.

        Comments about DW 9300 Heavy Duty Snare Drum Stand:

        I got this snare stand just the other day to go with my new OCDP snare drum. Stand is very heavy, but its worth it. Doesn't seem to move at all when i am playing, unlike my old one that would move alot whenever i hit my rim shots, which is all the time to get that nice crack sound. This stand is definitely worth the money!!!!

        If you need a snare stand and want to buy the best........... this is it! Solid as a rock, best built and best designed stand out there.It gets the base out of the way for double pedals w/ it's offset. Easy to fine tune your snare position. Best I've ever seen or used - period.

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about DW 9300 Heavy Duty Snare Drum Stand:

        This is, without a doubt, the strongest stand built ever. It isn't very portable however because of its extremely heavy weight but this also makes it very sturdy. The infinitely adjustable tilter is great but does tend to settle a little bit. This problem just takes a little time and it fixes itself. As said in other posts, the Tech Lock doesn't help at all. It is more expensive than others but makes up for it with quality that is well worth the money. The offset basket is helpful to a point but unbalances the snare when extended all the way. If a counterweight was developed, this would help. The stand can definitely handle the extra weight. The basket does get in the way of the memory lock though. Overall though, this is a professional duty stand that goes way beyond the normal heavy duty category.
