This Gibraltar 7710 Straight Cymbal Stand features all die cast parts with no metal-to-metal contact, and hinged height adjustments. At first look the Gibraltar 7700 Series stands appear to be quite heavy-duty. Actually, these stands are quite light in weight, but a heavy weight in performance. The elliptical leg base assembly provides maximum stability without the double-braced weight or large leg spread. Constructed of lightweight steel, these stands perform well for on the go or tight space set-ups.
