The Tama Roadpro Cymbal Boom Stand HC73BWN is a pro-quality fully adjustable cymbal boom stand with Tama Quick-Set Tilter technology and a Cymbal Mate fastening instead of the usual wing-nut for speedy cymbal changes. Roadpro-roadproven hardware-represents years of listening to the problems and suggestions of touring pros and years of prototypes and rigorous real life road testing. TAMA's line of professional hardware provides a whole new level of "Simplicity and Durability for the Pro Drummer." You've got all the features you expect in pro stands such as 28.6 diameter bases and double-braced legs. There's also a slew of internal design features that you can't see but will come to love.
Quick-Set Tilter (US PAT.NO.7385127)
The toothless Quick-Set Tilter securely holds its position using the friction of six metal disc plates instead of traditional gears, so you can adjust it to any desired angle. This mechanism also has a more durable structure than a conventional gear tilter.
Boom/Straight Convertible Tilter
Don't let limited stage space cramp your style! If there's no room for a boom, simply convert the stand to a straight stand. The boom arm stores neatly in the upper tube.
Reversible Bottom (US PAT.NO.6239343)
The cymbal bottom protects the cymbal's center hole from the tilter's shaft and threads. If part of the nylon sleeve wears out, you can continue to use the cymbal bottom by turning it upside down.
Noiseless Design (US PAT.NO.6454483)
Are cymbal stands just for supporting cymbals? Tama think cymbal stands are also musical instruments. All TAMA cymbal stands in the Roadpro and Stage Master lineups were designed with the elimination of stand noise a top priority. A special rubber cap (A) at the end of the upper tube eliminates swaying and rattling, and a special nylon sleeve (B) underneath the die-cast joint of the base section further reduces swaying.
Quick-Set Cymbal Mate
By simply gripping and pressing the two buttons on the sides of the unit, users can attach and remove the Cymbal Mate with just one touch. This makes setting up cymbals a snap. Of course, as is the case with an ordinary Cymbal Mate, it's easy to make fine adjustments to cymbal swing by rotating the unit.
By inserting nylon washers into the leg stand joints Tama have improved durability and made the leg action much smoother!
Steel Insert Nut
Placing a threaded steel insert nut inside the tripod base provides much more strength and makes stripping much less likely than with the traditional method of cutting the threads directly into the die-cast section.
You can choose two Cymbal Mate positions for Ride or China cymbals: Position 1 for a looser fit (shown left) or Position 2 for a tighter fit (shown right).
You loosen and tighten the T-bolt/nut of the die-cast joint every time you change the height of the cymbal, making the T-bolt/nut one of the hardest-working parts. At each die-cast joint, the T-nut/bolt is combined with a pressure plate and Nylon Bushing. With this design, removing and replacing a worn bolt or bushing is fast and easy.
