The Armory series of stands by Mapex are a complete line of gig-ready drum hardware designed to meet the needs of the most demanding big-hitters. The Armory series B800 boom stand is built using heavy-duty tubes, this is to keep up with even the most powerful of drummers. Double-braced legs allow you to smash your cymbals as hard as you like, safe in the knowledge that the stand is going nowhere. No matter what style of music you play, from deft jazz styles to raucous death metal, the B800 is for you.
Mapex has cleverly installed their Super-Glide Stepless cymbal tilters on the new B800. This new system allows you to attenuate the position of the cymbal microscopically, with the ability to readily clamp it firmly in place. The three-tiered height adjustment gives you increased flexibility with regard to cymbal positioning. No matter how complicated or busy your setup is, the B800 makes arranging your cymbals easier than ever before. Clamp-style memory locks fix the angle and position of the boom rigidly. So if you or your tech needs to make adjustments during a gig, you can complete the task efficiently and without any fuss. The base height adjustment allows you to adjust the stand accordingly. The cymbal arm has been cleverly designed with a knurled surface, so that if you're clamping cowbells, tambourines or other percussion items, everything will remain as fixed as you could hope for throughout every performance.
As drummers can attest to, there can be some movement of the stand during performances. To prevent this from happening, Mapex have fitted the Armory B800 with slip-proof rubber feet to increase traction and prevent the stand from sliding around on any surface type. The concave double-braced leg shape also makes the surface area wider to give greater stability. When not in use, the Mapex Armory B800 folds away neatly, making it very easy to transport. Though it may feel lightweight, you can rest assured that it is designed and built to last - tour after tour, year after year.
