Atlas Classic: stands that shaped the history of modern music

Many drummers may not know it, but Ludwig practically defined the portable drum kit we know today. It started in the 1950s, when their original drum hardware provided drummers with a new level of stability. It was the introduction of the Atlas line in the 1970s, however, that first satisfied the needs of a new generation of drummers who required thicker and sturdier stands that could handle the high-impact, high-volume drumming of the newly minted sound of rock music. With their thin flat bases, thick tripods, and easily adjustable tubing that locked easily into place, reliable Atlas stands quickly became a mainstay of gigging drummers everywhere. At Sweetwater, we're proud to offer these classic designs, which have more than stood the test of time.

Classic Design with Updates

First off, this is a lightweight stand, an important consideration if you're hauling gear in and out of venues on a regular basis. However, it is also pretty rugged where it needs to be and has some design features that make it an improvement over vintage stands. The Aerodisc bottom cymbal adjuster is pretty outside the box but does it's job well, allowing you to get the perfect angle on your bottom cymbal without having to fiddle with a screw. The footplate has the classic Ludwig Atlas/Speedking look and is very sturdy---the toe stop is a nice addition. Spring tension is adjustable with a drum key, a much cleaner looking solution than the usual clutch. Action was good out of the box, initially a hair stiff but smoothed out nicely. I have two issues that keep me from giving it five stars---no memory clamp for the height adjustment, which even many entry level stands have; even with the SpurLok anchors I still had some movement. However, this might be more a result of me putting my entire leg into the pedal when doing quarter or eighth note ostinatos than any design flaw on the stand's part. I used a little velcro on my drum rug and the bottom of the foot plate and that did the trick. Overall, a very cool and functional stand.
