Ok...I'm on a budget and I need to get a boom stand quick for some show.

I'm gonna have a 14 inch crash on it and then a 18 inch crash on a cymbal arm attachment...actually the vice versa would prolly be more logical...but anyways I need something to hold it...

I have a 16 inch crash on a Pearl 800 and whenever I hit it...it seems to wobble...not enough that I'm worried its gonna fall over or anything...but you know...

I found this stand for 30 bucks...but I'm worried it would fall over real quick...

My next option is the Pearl 800 boom stand...it's 60 bucks though...

Will the pacific stand hold up?

The Pacific stands are double braced so they may work ok for you. Gibrlatar and Tama both make lesser priced boom stands that are still excellent quality, better then Pacific for only a little more money. Might be worth a look.

just make sure that the cymbal is directly over one of the base legs for maximum stability. The only time I've ever gotten any wobble from any boom stand is when I have the cymbal positioned somewhere in between two legs and not directly over only one leg.

Yeah tama stands are pretty nice for the price.

I have the Pacific Boom Stand with my China cymbal on it and I must say for the price it is a great stand. And I smack the **** out of my china and the I've never noticed any movement of the stand.

I think a nice Pacific boom stand will help you out, and save you a little money.

Don't be fooled by that picture! I bought one of those and it is NOT as heavy as they make it sound. it is holding my bar of chimes, I wouldn't use it for a cymbal of any size over 12".
