The Tama Roadpro Straight Cymbal Stand features 28.6mm diameter base section tubing, Double braced legs, Quick-set tilter and Quick-set cymbal mate.
This straight cymbal stand has some other great features also, such as:
Quick-Set Tilter (US. PAT.NO.7385127)
TAMA's patented toothless Quick-Set Tilter marks another TAMA advancement in hardware. Relying on basic principles of physics, the Quick-Set Tilter holds its position using the friction of six smooth metal disc plates instead of traditional toothed gears, so you can adjust it to any desired angle. This mechanism also has a more durable structure than a conventional gear tilter.
By inserting nylon washers into the leg stand joints we have improved durability and made the leg action much smoother!
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.
Quick-Set Cymbal Mate (US. PAT.No.7629526)
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
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? We 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.
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.
