Re: Pat Petrillo here!
Well...The 8mm thread mounts on most cymbal stands work pretty well, but as with most of these types of mounts, it doesn't feel as sturdy as if if were in a snare basket..SO...
1) A snare stand that raises up higher, like a concert stand, works great.
2) 'retro fit" a cymbal stand top into a snare basket, cutting the cynbal stand pipe about half way...Works great standing or sitting
3) You can do the same thing with a snare basket/cymbal stand combo..just retro fit the snare basket into a cymbal stand!
Glad you dig it, and happy jammin!
