Help me with my new kit hardware, i choose DW, Tama or Yamaha hardware for my future drum kit?
First off ...... what kind of kit are you planning on getting (large, small) ...... and are you gigging with it, or is it just gonna be set up at home?
Constant set up and tear down is what really kills hardware. And ..... lots of gigging might require you to think about weight issues. Carting around a 200 pound hardware bag is young mans sport.
That said ...... I switched to Yamaha 600 & 700 single braced stands, starting about 20 years ago. Before that, I had a mix of stuff. Tama, Pearl, Ludwig, Rogers, Gibraltar, Kima ..... a lot of double-braced stuff. And now, except for some "specialty" items (like a Tama legless hi-hat, and a DW 9550 remote hi-hat), I'm pretty much a Yamaha guy.
100%There's really no correct answer to this question, and all we'll be doing is stating our personal preferences.
