Default two rides on the same stand

does anybody have any pictures of two ride cymbals coming off the same stand. i'm trying to figure out how to do this. I think I want to put my k underneath my a custom so that I can still play the bell of my A custom.

I was thinking a dw boom stand with a dogbone attached to the back part of the boom and then another boom coming out of the dogbone for the a custom.

my main issues to be concerned about is that I use a 4 piece kit and i like to keep my ride low and close to the tom basically over the bass drum. and it has to be DURABLE heavy duty. and i don't really want to use any kind of STACKED set up.

I use this technique with my 20 inch K Custom medium ride and 15 inch thin crash. The smaller of the two cymbals is held up using a standard Dog Bone and a 9 inch mini boom arm. The stand is a 9000 series, the heaviest and strongest they make, so there's not a lot of excess movement, even when I'm really laying into the cymbals. I don't know if you'd have any trouble with the A custom because of the weight (I'm assuming it's 20 inch cymbal), but in theory your idea should work.

Dude...check out the thread about my kit:

http://drummerworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=44195

In the pictures, you'll see close-ups of how I mount my 24" K Light Ride off of my cymbal stand, over my kick drum, with a splash cymbal mount. I mount 3 cymbals on that one stand, and I've never had a problem with slippage, tipping, placement, etc...

I tried dogbones first, but they always slipped within a minute under that much weight.

Hope this helps! It really should...

Either of these two should do the trick:

The 9799 (two separate arms) DW stand posted above can withstand a nuclear blast and still hold big, heavy cymbals. I've used them before to handle all drum and cymbal mounting needs on the right half of my kit and they do it without a hitch. Only warning: they weigh a TON so try and go light with the rest of your hardware.

I saw those double stands and they both look too high even at their lowest setting. I might be able to do something similar to that splash attachment. All the rest of my hardware is dw 9000 except my kick and hats are 5000.
