The Armory series of drum hardware by Mapex, is ready to go straight out of the box. If you're a big hitter or a heavy-handed player who doesn't want to worry about letting rip, then these are the stands for you.
The Armory series H800 hi-hat stand includes a range of features that make it the perfect choice for gigging professionals. The thick, heavy-duty tubing guarantees a firm and unyielding support, whilst the double-braced legs create an unmovable base. The tripod legs swivel around to allow the stand to slip easily into any setup - not only that but it makes accommodating a double-pedal arrangement simple to do. The slip-proof rubber feet ensure that no matter what surface you're playing on, the stand will remain firmly rooted to the spot.
The H800 benefits from Mapex's Tru-Direct-Pull drive system, which provides a responsive playing feel for absolute accuracy. Thanks to the cleverly designed drive system, the subtlest of nuances in your playing is perfectly represented. The 10-position tension adjustment allows you to place the hats exactly where you want - overhand players can whack them up on high and open-hand style players can keep them nice and low beside the snare.
The H800 benefits from the Falcon series quick release cymbal locking mechanism. When locked in, you can rest assured that the cymbals aren't going anywhere. But if you need to make a rapid change during a gig or in the studio, simply press the button, whizz off the cymbal, whack a new one on, and lock it back in - efficient and easy.
Throughout the stand, memory locks are on hand to create a solid and secure feel. The combination of resilience, stability and adjustability, makes the Armory H800 a must for the gigging professional. As you'd expect, the H800 packs away neatly and discreetly, making it very easy to transport.
