Default stand that holds 3 cymbals

excuse me if its already been asked i tried searching the forums i figured it would have been but...

i am looking to upgrade my kit and have as few stands as possible so do u think a dw 9702 or a dw 9799 http://dwdrums.com/hardware/9000/hardware.asp would b able to hold 3 full size cymbals:

han chi 18" china
sabian apx 16" crash
saibian apx 14" crash (by putting an auxillery clamp on one of the arms)

if not then is there a stand that could hold this?
also the 14" is probly gunna stick out about 3 - 4 inches off the stand so will a dw clamp (dogbone) hold this?

and i do keep my cymbals fairly low i dont like them towering over me lol

Unless you tend to play with nuclear bombs instead of drumsticks, I don't think you should find and difficulty with this stand. 9700 series stands are notoriously stable and capable. But then again, a smart setup can make lots of suspension possible even on a single braced stand.

In this picture, I am suspending 14" and 16" toms, an 18" A Custom crash, a 20" LP Rancan China, a 14" ZXT TrashFormer, and two cowbells on one stand - and that stand is a Yamaha 700 series single-braced boom stand. The toms and the ZXT are mounted to the stand using a short rack tube and Gibraltar rack clamps. I experience only slight wobble and give when playing normally. With a double-braced stand I would probably have almost none. Key to the success of this setup is the spread and positioning of the tripod legs - i.e. very wide and one leg pointed along the pull of the heaviest items (the toms).

The 9700 series are fine stands, but you might get away with the triple cymbal mounting on a smaller, lighter stand as well with no real stability issues, depending on how far you extend the booms. Good luck!

The 9702 looks like a mini oil rig - pretty solid. I'm sure it's pretty solid based on my positive experience from similar DW gear. I believe you may have to extend the legs fully outward to optimize its foundation. I did not have enough room for legs to be spread out that far. Go see one at a local vendor just to make sure.
I use the 9799 with no wobble at all. Extremely versatile as you can use a 3rd clamp for a cymbal arm. The 9702 doesn't have that. Add a few Dogbones, Puppybones (true name), fishbones (just kidding) and you can mount ANYTHING on it! If you change your mind later, throw a tom on there!

Just get a Pearl AX 38 or similar clamp, and you can convert any decent stand into one that holds three cymbals.




I've doing that for years and years.

The 9900 tom stand with two SM799's and a single SM934 will hold 3 cymbals. The SM799's go on each of the 2 tom-tom holders and the SM934 goes in the 3rd spot of the master clamp. See here for details.

I have the stand and it holds 2 cymbals easily and it would surely hold a third cymbal without issue. Depending on your tom mounts you may also get some use out of the stand if you change your set up at some point.

I will say I was using some of the Dw double stands and those things weigh a ton!! Solid but heavy at load out.

Heavy duty:

WS955

Or a little lighter:

WS860

All you need then is 3 cymbal holders like the short model:

CH750

Or the medium model:

CH755

But since the diameter is a standard (yamaha) size, you could add a x hat for instance:

The cool thing about this stand is the two arms swivel to get everything where YOU want, without a swiveling l-arm and a clamped off boom--which can move in a hardware bag/case (and then you have to adjust again...).
There are notches for a memory lock, so every time you set up it's all in the same spot.

This is a VERY sturdy A+ stand. The price is good on it too.

I use a variant of the DW 8799 Heavy Duty Triple Cymbal & Double Tom Stand. I have a crash, a china and an x-hat on it and it's still rock solid.

I buy a heavy duty double braced stand and then add a load of cheap stagg splash cymbal clamps to it and it is rock solid. A cheap, easy, strong and light option - works for me!
