      Depends whether you're a manly man or a wimpy girl child, only the bravest of men can take on double braced hardware and live to tell the tale.

        well yeaaaaah, if you don't play like some queer you need double braced hardware. Those cymbals are meant to be bashed.

            Seriously, some will say that single braced will do just fine; others will say that you should get double braced. It is hard to find single braced hardware these days, and they don't really save much money if any, so I would get double braced if just starting out.

                Kind of a generic question. Every manufactorer's hardware isn't the same. I would much rather have Yamaha's single braced hardware than some Sound Percussion double braced. Most of the double braced hardware from any of the major manufactorers should be plenty strong.

                  Alright...here's the way it works.

                  It doesn't really matter if the stand is double or single-braced. What matters is that the stand is well-made, sturdy, with user-friendly tilters and height-adjustments; and tube sections that are long and thick enough to do the job without wobbling or collapsing.

                  So what does that really mean? Well it can get confusing, as most high-end stands are double-braced.
                  However... single-braced versions of otherwise (nearly)identical stands are usually available. On the other hand... very cheap stands are almost always single-braced. Of course... there are tons of double-braced crap on the market.

                  High end or low end... all the three extra pieces of metal do, is add a little weight to the bottom of the stand. This lowers the center of gravity, making the stand a little more stable when large and/or heavy cymbals are extended on booms. Is the increased mass necessary for a stable stand? Not really. Proper placement of the stand, weight-distribution on the stand, and the quality of the stand's other appointments, are far more important to stability and durability, than double-braced legs.

                        for every double-braced stand, there's a single-braced equivalent....but the price is usually about the same...so what's the difference?

                        mainly weight....though not necessarily, because the more expensive single-braced stands are often quite heavy ....

                        i would get a mid-level double-braced stand for my heaviest cymbal, usually the ride....and make do with lighter booms for cymbals....single or double really doesnt matter
