My snare wont fit in my pearl 800 series snare basket because the hoops are too wide.

i have looked at the s2000 but...at $350AUD.....im not keen when i only paid $150 for the snare (bargain hey!)

does anyone know of affordable snare stands or stand alone baskets that will fit my snare?

Probably, but don't quote me on it. The 9608 is a more heavy-duty stand. The 8608 is plenty adjustable though, as it has a gearless tilter and the low profile and light weight are a plus IMO. It goes lower than the 9608.

They can order an 8608 for you. If you're worried about not liking it, ask them about their return policy.

I happen to have the 9600 stand as well. Diameter wise no problem, holds up for wood hoop snares. But I'm 5"5 and a 5" deep snare goes up to about 25" for me. If you have a deep snare you may not get it comfortable, but shouldn't be a problem if you're tall.
