Default DW 9000 Hardware configuration

Hi all, my first post :)

I purchased a DW collectors kit a few days ago and need to buy hardware for it. I'm going 9000. The thing is that I'm not sure what I need and can only order online. My set is a 4 piece, 2 up one down where the floor needs to be hanged and not on legs. (10,12,14,22).

Can you please take a look at the setup bellow and help me with selecting the right DW 9000 hardware for best configuration?

Thanks!!

Welcome to the forum!

Congrats on the DW kit. Have you considered a rack? I ask that because of that floating FT. The cost of the 9000 stands and gear might be close to the same price. If you prefer stands, that is what I've done. Some suggestions:

For your snare side:
-9900 Tom stand (with a clamp and 2 tom arms)
1 arm will hold the tom
2nd arm holds 2 dogbones in a V formation. Or you can use 1 dogbone (w/ cymbal arm) and insert a SM 934 Tube w/ boom cymbal arm into the clamp of the stand for the 2 cymbals.

For the other tom: same thing, but choose between the dogbone or SM934 Tube arm since there's only one cymbal to hold. Stick the Tom on the other tom mount.

For the Floor tom, it mounts on one of the tom mounts. Get a SM934 Tube arm to hold the ride. From that extended boom arm, mount a dogbone to hold the other crash.

Solid gear. But not cheap.

Thanks. Don't like racks :)

After doing some research, I was thinking about buying 3 dw 9702 and 3 DW SM991 Tom Holder with Clamp, so I have 1 "set" for "hi hat side" tom + crash + splash, one set for other tom + crash + future cymbal, and third for floor + ride + china.

Makes any sense?

Yeah those 9702 stands are pretty slick. Seems like you've got it planned out well.

I personally loved the versatility of the dogbones since you can stick them on any rod or post.

New hardware is always exciting - enjoy the set up!

The stands and mounts you picked should work out nicely.

The Dog and Puppy Bones are great pieces as well. It's cool that all the different parts and bits can work together, so you're not really limited in what you can do, AND it's really sturdy.

I have a lot of DW hardware myself, and this stuff will last a lifetime--or hold it's resale value pretty well, which ever comes first haha!

Enjoy your new gear, and welcome to the forum!

Have you tried the fish bones? (Just kidding!)

You need to share pics when your kit is complete so we know you're not making this up :-)

Thanks all :)

I started playing the drums exactly 20 years ago (14), which was a nightmare (neighbours), after 10 years switched to a roland vdrums set which I never liked.

Fortunately, I'm now moving to a new house where I can build a "Drum Room", expensive but a real dream coming true!!

Will post pictures when done (December).
