Yep the flat base cymbal stands Ludwig made were very sturdy. I never had the HiHat though, I played the Rogers HiHat Supreme stand with a Ludwig Speed King and later a Rogers Swivomatic after that. When I went to Tama in the early 80’s, I remember that every thing was just getting more and more massive. And the quality was hit or miss. The only pedal that ever gave me a serious problem was the Tama King Beat. Cracked in half!I use all Ludwig 1400 vintage flat base cymbal stands & 'spur-lock' hi-hat stands because they are light & last forever if you treat them right. I don't even own any modern double-braced stuff any more. It's all too heavy. I do use a modern snare stand and bass pedals these days though.
