What do you guys think of these stands? I don't think this stuff looks too bad. Do you think it would clash too much with other chrome hardware? thanks.

I had a vortex snare stand, I liked the idea of the basket that stays attached to the drum when you break down your kit.

It really let me down though. It always kind of 'bounced,' never seemed totally stable. Eventually the joint where the basket attaches snapped off. Never had a snare stand do that before.

Don't buy any of it. The only thing I recommend from Axis are the pedals. Everything else is cheaply made. All of my stuff rusted in the first week from humidity.

The stuff is alluminum... aluminum doesn't rust... are you SURE you had AXIS hardware? If you did, it surely did not rust. That would be impossible.
