I have been very happy with the Wetzel Pan Stand. It folds flat when traveling, sets up and breaks down very fast plus I can adjust the angles to virtually any playing position while enjoying a stable platform to roll the unit around during gigs when needed.
I have also found that the square frame is perfect for a banner to display my name and information. The crossbar underneath is the perfect place to mount my microphones without having to use mic stands or other clumsy hardware. One or two C-clamp mic holders will do the trick!
I have used other pan stands in the past. But they didn’t fold up or travel well and they were flimsy and unstable.
Before using the Wetzel Pan Stand, I had been using the 3 post double seconds stand from one of your competitors. I bought it because I wanted the ability to keep the pans with the exact same setup each time and also be able to move the whole setup at once. The thing I hated about the stands are the fact that they don’t fold up and travel well and the 3 post design was also very flimsy and unstable.
In my opinion, Wetzel Pan Stands are the BEST choice for the gigging professional.
