How about heat shrink tubing? Probably not the cheapest solution, but they could easily be taken back to original finish.

Although on second thought, probably not feasible for the telescopic section and clutch.

It's strange how mic stands went from chrome to black, but drum hardware is still usually chrome.

Hey all, 

     I have a few decade old Tama chrome stands that are in really good shape and I would like to spray paint them and make them black.  What's the best way to do this?

Many (many) years ago, another band decided to paint their chrome Atlas stands black...
Probably little to no prep, but the results were OK (barely) on the lower section.  The upper telescoping section was another story, with the paint rubbing off and fouling the clutch mechanism in short order.  A real mess.


Depending on how much you want to spend, there are some other very durable coatings out there that will likely outlive the stands.

Atlas also sells the telescoping tube assembly in Ebony as a replacement part.  Use your existing bases and keep the chrome tubes as spares.
