Default Crazy percussion stand

I gathered up a bunch of my percussion stuff, bought some clamps, did a little modifying and created this percussion stand. It's a lot of fun to stand in front of and hit stuff!

Nice, looks like a lot of fun to play. I really like the layout of everything. I wish I had an ascending gong, too.

Thanks for the comments, everybody.

King, do you mean the plastic bells that are pink and orange? Those instruments are called Sambago bells. Latin Percussion makes them. They sound much like agogo bells, except they have a very piercing woody sound. I recommend them.

youenjoy00myself: Sharp of you to notice the ascending gong. It makes are cool crazy sound. Mounting it was a trick.

Drummerchick: Thanks! It's a pain in the butt to move, but two people can also play it at once. I was even thinking about putting stuff 360 degrees around it, so you could have even more people play it, but it would take up too much room.

That is a crazy stand. I'm not sure how it defies gravity like that. It needs a tambourine though...

That looks like a lot of fun to play on. I bet my kids would love it too! I need some more percussive stuff like that. I could see using that setup in an overdub session.

No The things I am talking about are black and there are four of them. In the pic they are to the bottom right. There are large cowbells to the left of them and some sort of timbale? to the right of them.

Those are tuned agogo bells by Pete Englehart. I like collecting his stuff. He makes all metal percussion, unfinished raw steel, really crazy instruments. The bells are tuned very well and have a great sound. Google his name to learn more. The crasher and the lens drum (on the left, oval, with two bars across it), which are mounted on the stand, are also Pete Englehart creations. The conical bells on the wal above and behind the percussion stand are also PE things.

That is so awesome! You've just inspired me to start making something similar to this!

It's not so hard to put it together if you have enough hardware. Everything is based on 3/8 inch rod, except I had to thread and install extra-deep nuts at the end so the clamps could hold the rods. You can also get an off-the-shelf percussion holder from LP or similar manufacturer.

Thanks. I was wondering because I saw this youtube video by this guy named joecrabtree and he taught this beat that horacio hernandez often plays. But you need these 4 small cowbells tuned to different pitches and I don't know what they are called. The ones on your stand look just like them. Thanks so I've got to buy some agogo bells now.

Yeah that bell really tops it off. It would cause some serious laughs in a percussion solo.

That setup looks like so much fun to play, the 360 idea would be really interesting to see, perhaps use two stands back to back?
