Default SHOWDOWN TIME---most efficient use of stands/floor space

Let's see the smartest (maybe not prettiest) setups that use minimal stands and a small footprint relative to kit size. For example, ride cymbal arms mounted off the bass drum, a tom and two cymbals on one stand, etc. I know KarlCrafton mounts a cymbal of his floor tom leg and a ride off his bass drum... good stuff!

I'm sure we'll get pics of a bass/snare/hats setup and maybe a rack or two. That's cool too, but I want fresh, unusual, or just plain interesting ideas. So let's see em'!

Before I got a Hexrack for my Yamaha's, I had everything (besides my snare drum and hi hats of course) on two Yamaha 900 series double tom stands (each have three hole receivers) and the mount coming out of the bass drum.

I also have done the two-stand-plus-bass thing. But on a lark, one day I put this little fun kit together. The kick is an old 16" Ludwig floor tom I used to use as a gong drum. I made a little cradle for it out of rack parts, and other than the hi-hat and snare stands, that's what the kit is mounted on. 10" and 14" toms, 12" hats, 15" and 16" crashes, a 19" crash for the ride, a splash, and a 14" china. It actually sounded pretty decent.

Yes - but where is the Christmas wreath mounted?

What? You don't have a Christmas wreath on your kit? ;-)

This is an old picture, from 96/97

But I have:
20" Z heavy power Ride
19" Z custom Crash
18" Oriental China
14" Z Dynobeat hi-hats
and a cowbell

All on ONE stand.

This set has two toms and three cymbals on one stand, plus two toms and two cymbals on one stand, plus a two-legged cymbal stand clamped to a no-leg hihat stand and supporting the hats, ride cymbal and bells.

Thirteen items on three stands, using 9 points of contact. Very efficient!

Great stuff guys, Keep em' coming!

I really want to keep it down to two cymbal stands and was worried about having a 21" sweet ride and an 18" crash mounted off one stand with a 16" crash and 12" tom on the other. Looks like I have no reason to worry, haha. Time to buy some clamps!

Deathmetal thats a crazy little setup. I would smash my knuckles everytime I played a cymbal though.

Did I read in a thread that you have Yamaha's? If so, the 900 series double tom stands are a no brainer. I never had stability issues with them. I only went to the Hexrack because it was priced to sell and I thought it would look cool. I'm actually considering going back to the stands. The rack can be a bit cumbersome to haul around.
