It is more common than ever to see a rack tom mounted in a standard snare basket. The idea has been around for years and with the growing popularity of vintage drums, it's even more prevalent today. That's the reason DW now offers the DW 9000 Series tom/snare stand. The beefy 9399 specializes in securely cradling rack toms by offering increased isolation and resonance via specially-designed Neoprene® pads. These soft pads act as a cushion between the basket's crutch tips and the drum's counter hoop, while gripping tightly for stable, solid play. The stand also offers a patented removable, offset basket for easy positioning and quick snare changes. The larger footprint is courtesy of a Mega-Tripod base that gives the 9399 the largest footprint of any DW snare stand. The result is a heavy-duty, road-worthy stand that gently supports rack toms and snare drums like never before.
