Default Best multi-cymbal stands

As we work toward gigging I'm trying to minimize my kit. I went from playing a 6pc. last year down to a 4pc, currently. I keep my ride down low and I prefer two crashes, a 17" to the left and a 19" to the right. I sometimes use an extra crash or crash/ride to the right of my floor tom.

I'm trying to minimize the amount of hardware it takes to hold these cymbals...and use lighter hardware, if possible. Currently, I'm using a DW 9900 double-tom stand on the left to hold my small tom a crash, and a splash. It works but it's a lot of heavy metal. On the right side, I'm using 3 separate cymbal stands, which, if possible, I'd like to use a little ingenuity to turn that into one stand (that preferably still stays upright.)

Any idears?

Check out what I have done with my set, especially the later photos. I have one stand holding two toms and three cymbals, another stand holding two toms and two big cymbals, another two-legged stand holding a ride, supporting a legless hihat stand and holding a cowbell. If you are going to pile a lot of stuff on a stand I would recommend sticking with the DW 9000 or 5000 series. You can use more stands that are lighter or fewer that are heavier. To me, space is more precious than weight, so I have gone with fewer but heavier stands.

If I could figure out how to it I would just have one stand to hold everything. I don't like the forest of stands I see around a lot of peoples' sets, a double-braced weighted boom stand to hold a 6-inch splash, stuff like that. I like to do more with less.

Check out Sonor's hardware page:

I think the "Basic Arm System" section might have the kinds of things you're looking for. They also carry double boom cymbal stands in the 400 & 600 series.

If you want to stack multiple cymbals or effect on one stacker - the MultiStacker will do combinations of both. . .

Well, back in the day I used an El Cheapo cymbal stand with clamps to elevate a 20" ride, an 18" china and a 16" crash. It doesn't have to be that expensive or quadruple-braced in order to work.

Wow, good engineering! I'd like to see a photo of that setup.

Yeah, you can get a cheaper stand to do the work. But if I may ask, whatever happened to the El Cheapo stand? Cheap gear doesn't tend to last as long as good gear, especially if you demand a lot out of it.

It's still in a good shape and in constant use, but nowadays I rarely use a china cymbal. If you insist, I could set it up again and snap a picture of it.

the first pic of that thing is crazy, about 15 boom arms coming out of 1 stand.
i would just use a multi clamp and boom arms OR you could use the stackers to mount relativley small cymbals.

Any chance you can clamp some stuff to your tom holder-upper? Maybe two boom arms, stack the splash on something else.

Other than that, I used to have all Ludwig classic, straight, single braced stands (not from the uber-cheap line). They're awesome, and light stands. Mine went missing after a few moves from different apartments while the drums were packed away....

Also, just consider what you really need to bring to a gig.

I use the Yamaha C650 (lightest they do) and run a ride, crash, tom and either a splash or percussion of it. Stable as anything but maybe cause its all balanced out...
