Hihat stand FAIL!

Maybe it was the 5 shows in 3 days and all but I broke a hihat stand last week. The pedal came away from the post and and 30 minutes and two handfuls of grease later I finally gave up.  Truth be told, it was a DW 5000 two legged model that I never really liked anyway.  It was always wobbly or it would lean on uneven surfaces and i could never really get it too feel stable and rock solid.

So I called up my man West Wheeler at Taye and ordered one of these:

Taye 6000 HiHat stand

Can’t wait to put it through its paces when it finally gets here!
