Hi Hat Stand ROCK/Pearl Swivel Base Complete Solid Ready to Gig R

Thanks for stopping by. This is a ROCK branded hi hat stand. If you’re curious about “branding” like I am and want to know if this is some piece of inferior far-east junk, this stand is not. Probably made by Pearl because I can see some nearly identical stands on line that has the name Pearl where this one has the name “ROCK,” on the foot board. There is also a partial black and silver label that says “ROCK.” I’ve also seen some on line references that Rock brands were made by Gibraltar/ Kaman in the 1990s. With Kaman being one the world’s largest manufactures of musical instruments, particularly of “stencil” and music store custom runs, safe bet is Kaman. Pearl-contracted work by Kaman were good products. Anyway-it’s a solid and majorly heavy duty hi hat stand. Short of backing the gig van over it, this baby is built to last. Instead of plastic, it has a nice heavy chain pull/drive and there is plenty of spring tension feel when you push down on the foot board. I started with the base only. I purchased an upper tube (used) and an upper pull rod (new Pearl) and some nuts and bolts. It is complete in that it has niceties that are often missing like a memory lock, all 3 rubber feet with no cracks, newer felt and fender washer for the bottom hat cradle, bottom hat tilter assembly and a complete clutch. A cool feature not found on a lot of hi hat stands is a rotatable/swivel base. Use a drum key and adjust your pedal out of the way if you have a double bass drum pedal set up. I also broke down the stand to its smallest components and gave it a thorough clean-up/tune up. I removed all signs of dirt, grime and rust. There wasn’t much rust, just mostly surface tarnish from age so I used Noxon No. 7 for protection and a professional shine on the chrome. All friction parts were lubricated with either light machine oil or petroleum jelly. The foot board looks dirty-it is not. It is made from some ultra-porous aluminum that was very difficult to shine. But it is clean. None of the wing bolts are stripped-they hold well. Since it’s used, there are signs of use, but not abuse. It is a solid and sturdy stand with many years of playing life left in it. With many similar stands for far less out there, why buy mine? And at my price? You don't have to guess. The item is exactly as described and as seen in the pictures. I am a drummer and would only list an item I'd want for myself and I will, at your request, take this to the Post Office and get an exact cost of shipping to your door and you won't pay a penny more. The price takes into account parts purchases and my time spent doing the refurb work. Bear in mind, a decent clutch alone will run about $15. Don’t let the high shipping cost kill your interest. It is heavy. Regardless of the stated cost, you will pay only the exact amount to your door. I don’t charge for packing or shipping materials. I’m simply glad to see a fellow drummer get a decent stand at a fair price. If the pictures don’t say it all,ask me questions. There is the option of local pick up in the Harrisburg-Lancaster-Reading corridor of southeastern Pennsylvania.
Don't like my price? Make a solid and fair offer.
