Re: Mounted tambourine/cowbell placement and why?
It's been a while since I needed either, but when I did:
Cowbell off the right cymbal stand, so the bell is just above the ride.
I have long legs, and my knee rubs up against the bell if it's mounted off the bass drum.
Tambourine is off the hi-hat stand, just to the left of the hi-hat. So I can still play the hi-hat as normal, and do back beats on the tambourine with my left hand, or move my hand off the hit-hat and hit the tambourine that way.
