Hi all.

Ive recently purchased a 12x7 snare drum and because of the depth and diameter even with my snare stand at its lowest point its still too high.

Anybody recommend a snare stand that will do the job? something relativley cheap if possible.

My current stand is a mapex S550a.

cheers

Pearl makes a low stand for that purpose.

I use a 14x8 on a normal stand and don't have any problems with it?

Yes, what works for you works for everyone.

Both of these posts are pointless and do nothing but clutter up the forum.

Wiir... if you bothered to do the math, the snare is 2" smaller, therefore the stand needs to be tightened up to hold it, thus making it taller.

Ryder, eh, nevermind i already said it.

I was just saying that some people have different needs than him.

I just removed the tightening clamp and sawed off 3 inches from the stand base. Then did the same foot the basket pipe. It's s little bit of work, but works great for no cost.

The Gibraltar 8606 flat-base snare stand goes very low and costs only about 50 bucks.

Ludwig LM922SSL Double Braced Low Snare Drum Stand - #446386 on musiciansfriend. I have it and it's beefy and sturdy as hell. Also look at the DW 9000 series snare stand. I love my Ludwig stand though. I can fit a 12" depth on it and still have some room.

Edit: Also, if you look around, I found mine for around $60. It's normally 90+.

Pearl offers the 2-1000D low profile stand. It goes down as low as 14". That should be plenty low enough for even an 8" snare if you sit low too.

Any Pearl dealer can order it for you.

Some of you seem to have forgotten this part. The Pearl stand is a whopping $120. That's nowhere close to being affordable.

Yes, but sometimes what you really want cannot be had for cheap. It's just part of life. I would rather wait a few weeks and save up and do it right, then try and cut corners and end up with something half butt.

Just my opinion.

In this case it can. No corners cut on the Gibraltar 8606. It goes 16" low, has a brake-style gearless tilter, costs less than half as much as the Pearl, is backed by a great warantee. From my first-hand experience with Gibraltar 8600 hardware, I can vouch for it's sturdiness and the delights of the light weight and how compact they collapse to for transportation. And Gibraltar's customer service is great too.

Remember, not everyone is a world-touring drummer that needs the beefiest most widely-available hardware out there.

Just my opinion.

Thankfully a good portion of this forum is not Pearl-biased. It's one of the best traits of this forum.

hanks for the replys.

I did look st the S-1000D but i won't be using the snare enough to justify spending that sort of money.

Looks liek the gibralter is the one to go for.

also noticed pearl do little rubber blocks that fit over the rubbers at the end of the basket arms. Might have to look into those.

If you want really cheap, but fairly sturdy, Sound Percussion makes one. Im sure its CHEAP in cost also lol. Even has a memory lock on it.

Relevance to this thread? It doesn't go lower than a regular snare stand. And from what I've seen of SP hardware just sitting around in a store and being used by customers trying out kits, it's guaranteed to fail on you. When I worked at GC we had a lot of SP hardware fail before it ever left the store.

I'm all about affordable products, but there is a line you can cross where it's just money thrown down the drain and you're going to buy twice because you didn't buy nice.
