Default Unusual cymbal set-ups

I wanted to see some unusual cymbal set-ups. Either the way all your cymbals are set up around your set or maybe just one or two cymbals.

I have a 14inch B8 Pro thin underneath a B8 PRo 10 inch spash - both hanging on a stand. Works ok for me and was done like this because I didn't have another cymbal stand.

My set is a Sonor Force 3001
My cymbals are all B8 Pro

Hey Sole, great pictures, and you solved a problem for me. I havent been happy with the way I had my wuhan splash and china, so now I have them one over the other just like you have the two stacked in the picture, with the splash on top of course. I thought I was looking at my set for a moment. I have a Taye set of Blue Crush and the color is very similar to yours. Again thx for posting your pics. You never know when you may help someone.

Thanks for the comments guys... I hope others who read this will also post their pics too - I'd love to see some different set ups for both curiosity and future ideas.

Gruntersdad, glad I could be of help. I actually got the idea from the drumset of Ronald Bruner (July 2006 Modern Drummer, pg. 89)

Tony royster in his earlier days had a REALLY wierd cymbal set-up.

As for me, sometimes I'll throw a mini-china on top of a crash.

I'm also planning on adding to the two splashes you can barely see on the edges ... My plan is to get two more splashes and have a mini hi hat on each side ...

I like the inverted cymbal boom stand set up -I mount my 8" HH splash the same way on my Gibraltar rack. Gotta check the wing nut periodically, or the damn thing will eventually fall off, and then, Woops! ("Where the *&%$#$@ is that washer and wing nut??") When I just use normal cymbal stands, i like to mount the 8" upside down on top of my 16" AA medium/thin crash. (a space saving necessity, but it actually works very well)

If you want to see a crazy cymbal set up, go to www.paiste.com, scroll down on the page and look for "the cymbal set up of the month" and check this dude out.. must be 30 plus cymbals and some on the left must be a foot off of the floor.

Someone found a ZBT 8" Splash and gave it to me (they're not a drummer, just found it and thought of me) that I had mounted with a second clamp on the rod over my hi-hats upside down for about a day. I put it upside down because I didn't really like the quality of its splash sound, but reversed it gave a pretty cool chime sound. Mounting it on the rod was just convenient (not only in equipment but playability wise). But then I found a friend who doesn't mind ZBTs and decided losing the chime sound was worth $20.

Very cool setups! Nice to see people doing something different. Here are a couple of mine, a compact offset cymbal stacker and a legless hihat stand. See more at http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=23501. Also see the link to my kit's thread at the bottom of this post.

I do a hat in the center (and an X-hat on the right) and a ride on both sides.
Don't know if that's unusual or not, but I likes it

I'm just weird with my china placement now. It's oddly on top of my ride. I don't use too many cymbals, though. The real weird thing is they're all different brands
16" Paiste 2002 Crash
20" Dream Contact Ride
14" Stagg Black Metal Hats
8" Zildjian A Custom Splash
12" Wuhan China

With that setup, if you drop a stick it will at least hit a few cymbals on the way down and maybe buy you some time to pick up a replacement. heheh

How about Ndugu Chancler's cymbal placement? I saw him give a clinic and he explained why he's got them there. They're high and steep, but they're so close, you don't have to hold your arm out against gravity at all. The top half of your arm hangs naturally off your shoulder and the lower half goes directly back up. Everything stays close to the body and there's not strain on your shoulders, back, neck or arms. Sit in your playing position, take a stick in your right hand, and place your hand at about eye level at two o'clock (about 45 degrees to the right of straight ahead) about eight inches away from your head. The tip of your stick is where the sweet spot on the ride is. Comfy, eh?

I saw him give a similar clinic as well a few weeks ago, and then watched him perform. He really does have a great point about the cymbal setup like that, and watching him play- he had one of the fastest right hands I've ever seen on his ride cymbal!!! I kinda like playing like that now, but I always worry it will keyhole my cymbals faster...
