I do something similar. I use a boom stand for the ride, then mount a DW Puppy Bone on the end of the boom opposite the ride cymbal. I use that for a crash and it's VERY convenient! I can get by with only a straight stand for my left side crash and a boom stand with puppy bone for my ride and right side crash.

I kinda want to go with three straight stands on this new setup, though.

I'll try to find a pic.

EDIT - Can't seem to find a pic at the moment. Also, the boom arm on the Yamaha stuff is smooth and I had to use a Dremel to grind up a spot for the Puppy Bone to grab. Works great!
