Really? Pearl was about $50 cheaper for me. How about retail there, is the Gibraltar cheaper?

the pearl stand is cheaper than the gibraltar boom.

Oh, yeah. He's getting the straight, in that case it should be far cheaper. Except I like having the option of both a book and straight (with Pearls retractable arm), just in-case I need a odd-position (being my ride mainly).

If you are using flat base stands, then you should not be using boom stands. Doesn't go with the style.

I think a little bit of a boom is okay, but stability wise, i'd be skeptical to boom it out too far...

I've had my ride boomed right out with my ride, stable. Just some wobble, which is natural with the whole construction (especially the boom arm) being thinner. As long as you have a leg under where the most weight is distributed, being under the boom arm.

Holy crap, $130? That's fantastic! I envy you guys and your stores that have amazing deals, our shops are too stuck up to give the customer a crazy deal no-matter the time or day.

Oh right, because looks over durability and feel. My bad, I forgot.

Well, I'm sure you could put a ride on a flat base boom stand (except the paragon maybe) but if I really needed to use boom stands I think that I'd want a beefier stand than a flat base.

You guys under-estimate flat-base stands.

You'd boom out a flat base with a paragon? I'd put it on the straight stand, but a boom would be pushing it.

I never said a paragon. You said you'd prefer to boom a cymbal out on a double-braced stand, I simply said you under-estimate the strength of a flat-base stand.

Oh... I mentioned the paragon ride and a flat base boom wouldn't be the best idea. But I'm sure many cymbals would be fine on a flat base boom stand.... I just think it'd look a bit off.

Each-to-their-own. I wouldn't be able to position my ride any other way due to me having everything is very close.

I've got a bunch of different stands, including Pearl, Ludwig, Mapex, and Tama. All double braced. I just don't see the need for all matching hardware, my kit came with all the random stands (craigslist), and cymbal stands are the least of my worries at the moment, as long as they're steady, i'll use 'em.

I have a lot of hardware. Sonor 400 series boom stands x2, pedal, hi-hat stand and snare stand, a bunch of B-70's, some no-name crap, B1000, a pearl arm (2nd hand, the arms from back 2002) my flat-base, my eliminators, and until earlier this year a bunch of other Pearl hardware.

Maybe benny needs some sturdy stands.
Is it just me or is absolutely everything shaking all over the place in this video?

Has anyone had the opportunity to compare side-by-side the Pearl BC100S flat base stand to the Gibraltar 8610 straight flat base stand?

Pearl's stands are not as near well built, IMO.
