Guys n Gals,

I want to get a new 2 legged hi hat stand. I don't have cash for a DW 5000. The 2 that interest me are the DW 3000 or the new PDP "Concept" model.

Any thoughts on these or another similar priced product?

Dave

I had a DW 5000 and what surprised me was how short it was - even with the longer post. So check the dimensions before going after the DW3000. Other than the height, the 5000 was a sturdy, smooth action, comfortable and relatively light HH stand.

I bought a PDP stand for my nephew and it just didn't feel that sturdy to me. Though I haven't seen the particular model you're looking at.

Just my two cents.

I own three Mapex Falcon stands. The two legs come off with the turn of two thumb screws. Great stand.

I've been messing around with different 2 leggers here at the shop. I own two DW 5000 ones. I have to say, the best feeling, most stable ones (BY FAR) are the Iron Cobra and Speed Cobra models. If you can find a used one you'll be really happy.

I use both the 3000 and the 5000.

Nothing feels better for me, and rock solid.

The 800 PDP should be good, too.

I don't see any DW DNA in the Concept model.

Sorry Dave, I'm not up on pricing but I have a Yamaha HS1100 and it's great.

The DW two legged stands rock back and forth. Used to have to play one at a rehearsal studio and hated it. Then I noticed the same issue with the 2 legged DW stands other guys were playing.

I use three legged stands where the legs can be rotated to a position which doesn't get in the way of double pedals, etc.

I picked up a DW 5000 used thru Steve @ Russo's - Best HH pedal I've ever owned.....it replaced my aging Ludwig 1124 from the 70's - which served me very well - after I replaced the plastic part from the footboard to the rod assembly with a home-made aluminum one!

Was it a 2 legged model?

I have the lever model and it is very stable. I'm favoring the chain (velo) feel these days. So now I need to consider a Velo model. The fold ability of the Tama stand is very nice.

Any DW 2-legged stand that rocks back and forth isn't set up properly.

Mine do not move. Rock solid.
