Use design to your advantage when setting up your kit.
Your cymbal clamp off of your ride cymbal stand is genious! If I do this I can get rid of a stand all together. Has anyone out there hung a 12" tom off of one of these flat base stands? I did one gig with a 10" tom but I am not sure if one could handle the weight.
