Dude you make me second think about ordering a new Dyno-matic hi-hat stand.Years ago I cut my lead guitar player's cord neatly in two by bashing a thin Zildjian crash supported by a swivo-era Rogers swan leg stand - at that time, one of the lightest (and skimpiest!) stands available. A badly executed uppercut ..... probably a late hit ..... lifted the whole kit & kaboodle into the air to my right.
Definitely takes up much more space than the Tama Ludwig 1400 clones. However, it's great that we finally have a lot of choices when it comes to lightweight hardware.
They work fine outside. You csn expand the legs out nearly flat and they have a huge footprint that keeps them stable even in a breeze.I won't use them outside. They're so light that a slight breeze will topple them. You can do a regular lightweight stand for that. But everything else..
I can see if someone goes to the Tama's for the vintage look. I get that.
Ok. In the interest of clarifying everything I say about these. Because .....They work fine outside. You csn expand the legs out nearly flat and they have a huge footprint that keeps them stable even in a breeze.
My observation as well. Actually had to catch a couple of cymbals as they were tipping over with the Tama stands at a windy gig... no such issues with the Crosstown.They work fine outside.

You'll be very happy!I ordered a set this week and it should be here Tuesday. These comments are increasing my confidence in my decision. I love the quality of my Yamaha 700 series stands, so they really got my attention with the idea of an super-light, mostly aluminum, tripod base stand. I've also been using DW UL's for gigs when I'm trying to go extra light, and I've been pleased with them overall - but I've always been more of a tripod base stand man. I'm looking forward to taking the new Crosstowns out to a few gigs and see how they do.
