So i was cleaning my garage (its a mess) and saw my drum cymbal stands and the bulb above my head turned on. I figured if i could fit my strobe brackets i would be set so i tried it and here is the result.

They need a little cleaning and Im set, just discovered 5 new boom stands in my garage.

It fits perfectly and its pretty secure and sturdy, however i wouldn't put anything heavier from a medium softbox and of course with some added weight just in case.

I can even attach them to my regular light stands. So.. there you go, another alternative for lightstands :D

Yah…I know. To me thats an expensive light stand. But it is HD, and it won't tip over.

I can't imagine that it would work well with decent sized lights, it's not really designed to hold anything too heavy. If that's all you're going to boom off it though just be sure to sandbag it! ;)

Yes, it will not support heavy lights/modifiers but for lightweight strobes and speedlights its perfect... anyways, I always sandbag my stands even if Im using a small speedlight.

Cymbal stands (quality ones) are built strong, like to withstand the forces of drummers banging a heavy cymbal repeatedly, and usually without fail. I played heavy rock for 25 years, never once busted a stand. I'd trust a Tama cymbal stand over a run of the mill light stand any day, dollar for dollar.
