Buying drum hardware depends completely on the drum kit you already own and what style of music/circumstances you play. For example, if you are a drummer who gigs a lot or is on the road then double-braced hardware is more suitable for you. Individual tubes tend to be of thicker diameters, while doubled-braced tripods are the norm, making for a stronger, more rigid stand from the ground up. This added strength brings with it advantages: boom arms can be longer and extra items can be clamped off a single stand.
Boom stand or straight stand
The main difference between both stands is that booms are usually more flexible in your set-up. A boom stand has an extendable arm which means that you can adjust the cymbal position with more ease. The straight stand (also known as a cymbal stand) basically goes straight up and down. You can also buy convertible stands that can be either a boom or straight making it interchangeable for your kit layout.
Double or single braced hardware
Single braced hardware is not necessarily less stable as double braced hardware, however, they are much lighter and easier to transport. If you are using doubled braced hardware, it is more durable and can withstand more ‘beating’ so to say. Essentially, you can say that double braced hardware can withstand more weight, so if you were to add a tom, for example, onto your cymbal stand, a double braced one would be more suitable. Weigh up the cons and pros of why you would use either or of the braced hardware. Single braced is lighter and easier to transport, however, you can add more to the double braced.
