Tama Star Series Snare Stand
Tama’s HS100W is one of the most innovative snare stands on the market. Every detail of this stand has been made for ease of adjustment and superior sound production. The basket design is very unique and can accommodate 12-15 inch diameter snare drums and can be adjusted with a nut on one of the arms, which I find easier than the traditional knob design. The claws are also designed to not have a lot of contact with the drum so it can ring more freely. Speaking of ring, the tubes have been designed with True-Sound Insulation Mutes that prevent the stand from absorbing vibrations which limit sound production. The double braced legs also have oversized rubber feet to cut down on vibrations lost in the floor as well as a retractable spike for stability. This stand uses Tama’s Oni-ball tilter which is a bit more reliable than most ball and socket type joints which offers a quick way to adjust the angle of the drum. While this stand is more expensive than other snare drum stands, you’re getting some superior features in exchange.
