for the High mass stand

These stands have changed the electronic sizzle on the cymbals to a more realistic crash with sheen. The bass has tightened up and the overall musical presentation is more involving and wider. The speakers now do not move when gently nudged and it is very unlikely that a cat or the baby will knock them down. I put clear electric plastic terminus caps on the large spikes to protect the floor and used sticky tack to attach the speakers to the stand. These stands are a real bargain and an eye opener from the Targets I was using.

Product Weakness: I had to remove the gold decorative corner covers to give a more industrial look.
Product Strengths: Style, heft sturdiness and price.
