Yes, I used the cymbal mount for a cowbell. I don't think that it occurred to me that it was for your ride cymbal!
All of my cymbal stands were wobbly! The bass and hat pedals were leather drive. The cymbals were called "Krut" or something like that. They sounded like their name!

I replaced the cymbals with Zildjian new beats and A's. I replaced the pedal with a Speed King.

Behind my house was a large cemetery. No dead people ever complained about the noise!
There were four neighbors that sometimes bitched a little. I terrorized them for it! I was a rotten kid! I was always in detention at school. Every cop in town knew me well!
I hadn't learned how to deal with my anger problems yet. That came later when I was about 16.
I kind of like old drums:)
