The Taye Drums Hardware Pack Z is a decent combination of 2 cymbal stands, a hi-hat stand, a bass drum pedal, and a snare drum stand.  Most hardware packs of this level have the same contents.  This came with my Taye Studio maple kit when I first bought it.  The drum set was used, but the hardware in the Z pack was new.  I wasn't in need of any extra hardware because I had a set of very heavy duty TAMA hardware that I was happy with, as well as my own set of pedals.  However, I wasn't about to turn down the chance to try a new set of hardware for free, and I am glad I got the chance because the Taye Z Pack was actually very good. 

All of these stands are double braced, which is one of the most important things to look for in hardware.  They are billed as being not too heavy, but they are definitely solid.  Both the crash/ride stands also have 3 points of adjustment along their body, which adds some ease and variability of adjustment.  Many lower end cymbal stands only have 2 points of adjustment, and this can be a real pain.  The snare stand is really convenient because of the bend it has at the neck.  It is easier to raise or lower the snare head because of this and it is possible to tilt the snare at more unique angles.  The hi-hat stand is pretty sturdy and the pedal is reasonable responsive.  The top hi hat attachment stays in place for as long as it needs to.  The only piece I wasn't totally satisfied with was the bass drum pedal, because it felt a bit clunky to play.  It was slow to respond and difficult to adjust.  I didn't expect much from a Taye bass pedal because that isn't their specialty.  Considering that I have played extremely cheap pedals that feel better than this, it was a bit of a disappointment. 

Overall, this is a good hardware pack.  I wouldn’t go out of my way for it, but if it comes with a purchase I recommend it.
