As any veteran drummer will tell you, the only thing more important than your shells and cymbals are the stands they sit on. Because the last thing you want when you're miked up and ready to rock is a snare stand that scoots or a ride stand that wobbles.
Fortunately, when you buy your stands through Sweetwater, you can rest easy knowing they meet the exacting specifications of our in-house drum experts. Our buyers work hard to ensure that every rack system, stand, and mount we carry, at every price point, meets the needs of our hard-working drummer friends. And as you'll learn from our snappy shipping speeds and satisfaction follow-up, Sweetwater is also committed to giving our customers the best shopping experience around, and at the best prices online.
New to drum and cymbal stands? Want to explore your options? Our Sales Engineers are happy to walk you through your purchase. Here are some conversation starters:
Light traveler? If you're looking to save some weight on a stand or two, the latest flat-base stands from DW, Pearl, Ludwig, and TAMA are more than adequate to support your crash cymbals and standard snare drums, while reducing weight on trips from the car to the stage and back.
Persnickety about placement? Drum racks have made a strong comeback the past decade since their near slip into antiquity. If you're the type of drummer who needs their cymbals, toms, and percussion toys in exactly the same position every session, consider one of Sweetwater's many rack system from Gibraltar, Pearl, Yamaha, and more.
Looking to save money on a turnkey set of stands? Our hardware bundles from Mapex, Yamaha, and DW (just to name a few) are the perfect complement to any shell pack. Matching stands - those which match each other, and especially those that match your shell hardware - say a lot about you as a performer, and are a guaranteed way to add a visual pop to your stage presentation.
Percussionist? Sweetwater also carries a range of bongo and conga stands and mounts. So if that old stand of yours is on its last legs (literally or figuratively), give us a shout. We'll find you a suitable replacement, and do our absolute best to have it in your hands in time for your next set.
