No issues with DW here but I agree that Tama has made and still makes solid gear.For me it’s DW. And not in a good way. Have a kit in trad sizes that I love but over many years, I have had almost all of their hardware stuff break or fail. I’m as surprised as anyone else but it’s true: pedals, spurs, tom holders, brackets, tension rods, you name it. Problems with all of the fabled DW hardware.
On the other hand, I’ve got some 25 year old cheap Tama Swingstar stands that have outperformed everything else and just refuse to die.
How about you?
