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.

UL hi hat

This is the least impressive of the UL line. It is lighter than other flat based hardware, but practically speaking (for carry) not by much. The weight is in the pedal. The stand is simple, sturdy as any other flat based HH, perhaps better than most. Two minor complaints: 1) the base that the pedal clips into is plastic. This saves weight but will it be durable? There is plastic, and then there is plastic. The firearms industry uses plastics are near to indestructible. Then there's other "plastic." Which is this, time will tell. 2) The spring adjust is located and designed such that when folded up it WILL gouge the surface of the pedal, unless you "bag" the pedal, which is another step.
