Mapex don't do things by halves, and with their Armory series of drum hardware, they really take things up a few notches. The H800CB hi-hat stand comes in at well under £100, and is the perfect partner for professionals who need a stand that will keep up with their big-hitting style, whilst providing the manoeuvrability and versatility required to slip into any setup.
The thick, heavy-duty tubing guarantees a firm and unyielding support, whilst the double-braced legs create an unmovable base. The tripod legs swivel completely, enabling the stand to fit comfortably into any setup, accommodating a double-kick pedal arrangement neatly. The slip-proof rubber feet ensure that no matter what surface you're playing on, the stand will remain firmly rooted to the spot.
Mapex's unique Tru-Direct-Pull drive system, ensures that the subtlest nuances and inflections of your playing style are perfectly executed. Whether you're an overhand or open-hand player, the 10-position adjustment allows you to dictate exactly where you set the hi-hats, matching your playing preference perfectly.
A brilliant feature that has been implemented on the H800CB - borrowed from the more expensive Falcon series - is the quick release cymbal locking mechanism. When locked-in, the cymbals remain firmly in place. However, should you need to make a speedy change, simply push the button and the lock pops off, keeping things nice and easy.
Memory locks are employed throughout the stand, giving you the reassurance that once you've secured everything into position, it remains that way until you decide otherwise. At the end of every gig or session, the stand folds away discreetly.
The Armory series H800CB is an excellent hi-hat cymbal stand that is suited to professionals that need gig-ready hardware, which will stand up to relentless abuse night after night.
