Re: Is it just me (boom vs. straight)?

I have replaced a few of the really thick ones that came with some of my Yamaha stands...they seemed a bit restrictive. They are definitely on the thick side, but all you need to do is peel away a bit at a time until it's the right thickness for your application. They split very easily just using y...

Re: Help deciding between boom stands...

FTI: Gas line tubing makes an excellent cymbal sleeve, and costs almost nothing.
