The Gem of the UL series

A solution for someone playing jazz or lighter music who has to lug their own gear. This stand is much lighter than the Sakae light weight snare basket was using. It's got all of the best features of light weight snare baskets of decades ago with none of the weaknesses. The two snap-in-place arms and spring-load arm are genius. They making mounting/dismounting the snare drum faster than the turn-nut systems. Because of the design and shape of the hands (the part that grabs the drum), there is little pressure on the drum, so it does not choke resonance, but the stand and drum can be picked up by the drum without the stand dropping off (makes it easy to preposition). Deduct a fraction of a star for a design oversight (and a suggestion). There should be hash mark on the sliding tilter that shows where "flat" is.

Simple with Vintage Looks

I'm a bass player who was looking to update the hardware on my jam room/rehearsal drum kit that I keep for friends, other drummers, and for me to just goof around on. I bought (3) of the 6000 ultra light cymbal stands, the 6000 snare stand, and the 6000 ultra light hi hat stand because I wanted vintage looks and wanted hardware that was simple to operate and reasonably priced. Overall, these pieces fit the bill and are exactly what I was looking for. I grew up around lightweight vintage hardware, and these function very similarly, but with modern build and engineering. The snare stand is excellent, and is nice modern update on a classic Slingerland/Ludwig style. The Hi Hat stand is no frills, but it does the job- and the tension adjustment works just fine. The hat stand did feel a bit wobbly - but extending the carpet screws has helped stabilize it. The cymbal stands are nice, and they look very classy. I particularly like the adjustment on the cymbal tilt. *Note - the ones I received are the updated version - the one pictured on the Sweetwater site are the older version. But the tilt is very well engineered and it looks great. Also the aluminum feet/legs on all these are very sturdy and have more 'heft' to them than I thought they would. The upright tubes on all are very light and can feel a bit "flimsy" - but once everything is tightened down and secured they work just fine. Above all else - everything is SUPER lightweight. Why any drummer would want to lug a case full of old double braced stands or super oversized hardware is beyond me. Overall, all of these components look great, and function just like the simple hardware stands from the old days. Are they better than the cheap Percussion Plus stands that I am replacing? No, probably not. The hat stand is a vast improvement, but the rest of the stands are - well - just stands. They do the job. But with these 6000's, you're paying for the DW name, vintage looks, light weight, and DW support.

Snare stand limitations

I have been using the Ultra Lite DW cymbal stands and the snare stand for over a year and I am a weekender, so I use them regularly. I play jazz and light rock. Being 62 years of age, I was drawn to them because of their light weight. I am totally satisfied with the cymbal stands but not as happy with the snare stand. First, the base of the stand is smaller than the cymbal base. Probably makes getting it between the bass drum pedal and the hihat pedal easier for small framed/short legged drummers, but it makes the stand "wobbly" for me. I play a standard size snare and use traditional grip. I also tilt the snare at a pretty good angle, so the center of gravity is not right over the center of the stand. I bought an extra cymbal stand, used that base, and it make the drum much more stable. Secondly, like the early snare stands, this stand isn't designed for anything but a 14 inch snare drum The arms of the snare stand lock in place and can't be adjusted to other drum sizes, such as supporting an 8x12 tom or a second snare drum that was smaller. I think DW products in general are super. I just think this one could be improved with a wider base, like that of the cymbal stand.
