I'll try to explain my problem with this image.
The problem lies with how to set up the two rack toms. I'd like to have the crash as it is shown here, but to also have the two splash cymbals either side. What would be the best way to this?
Ideally I wanted to get a double tom stand for the toms but would there be room for a stand for the crash?
I suppose I could mount the crash on the double tom stand, but what about the splash cymbals? If I mounted the toms, crash and both the splashes on the one stand it would be too much weight wouldn't it?
I'm not entirely opposed to getting a rack but i'd rather not if I can help it.
I can't really tell what you've all done with yours :s
Nah cymbal stands can take a lot of weight. What's important though is that you make sure that it's all balanced properley so it doesn't fall over, usually sticking one leg out toward the drum throne, underneath the 2 toms helps enormously.
