This Single Braced Boom Stand is equipped with 25.4mm Diameter Base Section Tubing. The M8 threaded rod is also thicker to withstand the hardest hitters. A new round shaped Cymbal Mate can be spun easily with just a flick of the finger, but thanks to non-threaded sections on both the new tilter and the Cymbal Mate, the Cymbal mate won't spin off the top of the tilter during normal play. A new cymbal bottom protects the cymbal hole from the tilter's threads. And if part of the nylon sleeve wears out, you can continue to use it temporarily by turning it upside down. All Tama cymbal stands were designed with the elimination of stand noise a top priority. A special rubber cap at the end of the upper tube eliminates swaying and rattling, and a special nylon sleeve underneath the die-cast joint of the base section further reduces swaying. If there's no room for a boom, simply convert to a straight stand! The boom arm stores neatly inside the upper tube.
