TAMA Drums HC83BW Roadpro Boom Cymbal Stand Features:
Boom/Straight Convertible Tilter - If there's no room for a boom, simply convert the stand to a straight stand. The boom arm stores neatly in the upper tube.
TAMA's patented toothless Quick-Set Tilter holds its position using the friction of 6 smooth metal disc plates instead of traditional toothed gears so you can adjust it to any desired angle. This mechanism is also more durable than conventional gear tilters.
By simply gripping and pressing the two buttons on the both sides, users can attach and remove the Quick-Set Cymbal Mate with just one touch, making cymbals setup/breakdown a snap. Like TAMA's standard Cymbal Mate: fine adjustments to the cymbal's swinging motion can be made by rotating the unit.
Reversible Bottom - The cymbal bottom protects the cymbal's center hole from the tilter's shaft and threads. If part of the nylon sleeve wears out, you can continue to use the cymbal bottom by turning it upside down.
By inserting nylon washers into the leg stand joints, TAMA has improved durability and made the leg action much smoother
Placing a threaded steel insert nut inside the tripod base provides much more strength and makes stripping much less likely than with the traditional method of cutting the threads directly into the die-cast section.
TAMA's Glide-Tite Grip Joint allows for a more secure attachment by using a metal-to-metal contact point. This provides a solid anchor and complete isolation for a tom or cymbal. Because the stand does not move with the instrument, the natural resonance of that instrument is maximized.
