Too often we don't think about things we need to be successful that aren't a drum, cymbal or stick.
One of the most important? A good music stand.
Well worth the money in terms of stability, durability and ease of use.
I can't stress enough how important your music stand is to your success.
Despite its all-metal construction, this stand is relatively light-weight and has few parts. Less parts means less parts that can break or fail. Also, the stand is sturdy enough to hold some percussion goodies - like a triangle clipped to the desk, or sticks and mallets on a towel with the desk set flat.
Get a good music stand, put it where you practice, and use it every day.
