Tama HC103BW Star Series Boom Cymbal Stand
The discerning drummer also understands that existing hardware solutions may mute or color the true tone of drums and cymbals. Through numerous mechanical breakthroughs, Tama STAR Hardware has arrived at the ideal of "sonic invisibility," far beyond anything in its field. If you appreciate ingeniously simple solutions and unerring functionality, STAR Hardware awaits your inspection.
The all new cymbal tilter on the Tama HC103BW allows for gearless angle adjustment of the cymbal in all directions. The friction of six metal disc plates gives ample stability. In addition, this L-rod allows extension of the cymbal's length/reach without having to change the angle or height of the cymbal or boom arm.
By simply gripping and pressing the two buttons on the both sides, users can attach and remove the Cymbal Mate with just one touch, making cymbals setup/breakdown a snap. Like our standard Cymbal Mate: fine adjustments to the cymbal's swinging motion can be made by rotating the unit.
The new boom arm tilter allows for extremely easy and quick adjustment of the cymbal position. With only one wing nut, you can adjust the angle, length, and orientation of the boom arm in all directions. Eight metal discs secure the boom arm in place.
Tama's new Glide-Tite Grip Joint allows for a more secure attachment by using a metal-to-metal contact point. This provides an extremely solid anchor and complete isolation for a tom or cymbal. Because the stand does not move with the instrument, the natural resonance of that instrument is maximized.
It's widely known that the vibrations of a cymbal or tom will transfer to the stand, causing the natural sound to be partially absorbed by the pipe. To maximize isolation and bring out the true sound of cymbals and toms, an inner pipe mute is equipped on the top pipe of all STAR series stands.
With a partially hollowed inner section, Tama's new cymbal felts offer minimum contact while maximizing the natural resonance of the cymbal. The felts are same diameter and therefore offer the same support as a traditional felt.
