Bombproof and not too heavy

Okay, so no-one is going to look at the photo and end up salivating with delight at the prospect of an add-on cymbal clamp and boom arm BUT it's worth making sure you're buying something decent or you'll end up buying again!

This is a great piece of kit - solid enough to take a decent sized cymbal so it's not just for splashes, it'd comfortably take a fairly heavy weight cymbal and the stand won't budge.

Where you can slightly tell the reduced cost is in the smoothness of operation - it's not quite up there with the more expensive hardware but let's be fair, look at this price.

Well done Thomann, it's another belter!
