The three common types of stands are the straight stand, the boom stand and the convertible stand.

The Straight Cymbal Stand

The straight stand is like it sounds! The stand is straight until it comes to a slight angle at the top where the cymbal will be mounted.

These have always been the most popular choice for drummers, however that isn't necessarily true anymore. Drummers often like the flexibility of other stand types as opposed to this kind, but if you are looking for a good starter stand, or just a cheap stand this is the kind to go with.

Many drummer prefer this type of cymbal stand due to its flexibility.
