From the ‘never saw it comin’ file, a few years ago I put together my Tama Club Jam kit for gigs at tiny venues or just practice.
I tried to use only stands and even cymbals that took up less space but still performed admirably.
While I own 5 other high-end hi-hat stands, each one is built to withstand a 400-pound gorilla playing speed metal.
This one I picked up in a pawn shop for $20 and has to be a junior size, perhaps even came with a kids kit for all I know.
But dammit, this thing performs flawlessly!
I can’t find any markings on it so I don’t know the model, or make. But through about 5 years of gigging, rehearsals, practice sessions, load ins and load outs, it is just a silent killer.
I can’t get over how well it works, adjusts, folds down to nothing, and just disappears into the gig bag when I break down.
Nothing this cheap should ever work this well. Yet it does. Performs right up there with my top of the line Pearl and Falcon models.
Got anything you bought for peanuts that just blew you away?
Also, any idea what make hi hat stand this thing is? I swear I would buy one again at full retail.
