Just ran across this at Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Pacific-Drums-DW-Series-Straight/dp/B0009QTQ3W/

These aren't the really cheap, skinny PDP stands. Normal street price is around $60. At the moment, Amazon is selling them for $26.05.

Yeah, I've got one of the PDP 700 cymbal stands, which are currently $35 at Amazon, and although the clamps are a lightweight and there are no memory locks, it's a solid enough stand. The 900 series look much sturdier. I bought 2, one to replace the PDP 700 on my main kit (hate not having memory locks when I'm setting up a lot) and one to add to my practice kit at home.

Thanks for the heads up Asher. Even though I have switched to lightweight straight stands, I couldn't resist pulling the trigger on this one.

They are selling the PDP FS Birch kit for $384???

I paid $299 for my used kit a few years ago.

I'm mostly using the DW flat-based stands to keep my hardware bag as light as possible. These stands look a lot heavier, so I bought them mostly with my practice kit in mind. At some point I'll pick up another flat-based stand, but for now I'll haul one of these around. Seems like I've been chronically short of cymbal stands lately, so a couple of inexpensive sturdy stands was exactly what I needed.

Now they're even cheaper: $25.15! I wasted $1.80 buying these yesterday instead of today. :)

Amazon pricing is so strange sometimes. For most drum-related things, I can get a better price contacting a drum shop directly (and while I'm a fan of Amazon, I prefer to support independent music stores). But these stands, like the Enduro cases, must be selling at or below the normal wholesale price. And it doesn't look like all these things are being clearanced out: most of the Enduro cases I bought for $20-40 are now back around $100.

Just got two stands for a little over $50. Just what I needed.

Thanks for looking out, Asher!

And... now they're up to $60!

I've said in another thread(s): a mod should sticky an "Amazon Drum Deals" thread like the eBay and vintage deals threads... then the deals can go away lightning fast! :blackeye:

Just got me stand. Man, what a great deal. Between this and the $26 Drumseeker 16x22 bag I got from amazon, I think I've used up my allocation of great deals.
