Lightweight Stability for Your Cymbals!

DW's vintage-style 6710 straight cymbal stand provides you with the stability you need, without adding a ton of weight to your kit. No two drummers here at Sweetwater set up their drum kits the same way, which is why the 6710 is such a hit around here. It offers you a wide range of adjustability, including DW's patented cymbal seat adjustment for controlling cymbal movement, as well as a precisely adjustable tilter and hinged Techlock memory locks, which make setup extremely fast. What's more, the 6710's flush base design provides the stability of a traditional tripod stand base, without getting in the way of the rest of your drum stands.

DW 6710 Straight Cymbal Stand Features:
  • Lightweight straight cymbal stand that fits your playing style
  • Low-profile and lightweight aluminum Flush Base Design provides traditional tripod stability
  • Patented Cymbal Seat Adjustment lets you set the range of cymbal movement to taste

Have used DW equipment forever. Tried these stands out at NAMM and were impressed. So I finally had Sweetwater send me the cymbal and snare stands. I'm so pleased. Surprisingly sturdy, stands don't move when the cymbals are hit. Slight movement of the snare when hit hard but not much more than using heavier stands. I run 3 different size of kits depending on the venue. I now use these on all indoor small and medium sized gigs. I go back to the regular 6000 series outdoors and large venues....really happy with these ultra lights......

UL Cymbal Stand Initial Response

A solution for someone playing jazz or lighter music who has to lug their own gear. These things are amazingly light, so much so that if that weren't the main point of them, you might think "flimsy." But these stands are tight and engineered well. Although they have a very small base, they held 21 and 22 cymbals easily. However, I don't think I'd use these outside - a moderate gust may upset the apple cart. Much lighter for carry, which is the point, stable enough as long as your not constantly laying into the edge of the cymbal. Be aware that the tilter is different that what is pictured. It is now identical to the one on the UL snare stand. It utilizes a brass bushing, which should keep it from slipping. Time will tell, but as for weight, I loaded up my gear bag with the UL hardware that there was a noticeable difference..

Simple with Vinatge 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.
