Default bits and bobs and where to put them

Hi everyone, just wondering if anyone could help me out...

For a while now, i've been collecting a few extra bits of percussion kit but now i'm struggling with where to put them... I have a half moon tambourine, two LP jam blocks and a medium sized cowbell and I want to know what kind of stands i will need if I want to use them when playing kit.

I would also like to spend as little money as possible as i'm saving for new heads and cymbals etc. (aren't we all??)

Thanks,
DAN

Sorry about the huge pic....I don't have a better one available, but I use a four-peg cross-clamp (I think it's LP) that attaches to a single cymbal stand that I have on the left side of my rack. I have the half-moon tambo, blast block, cowbell, and chimes above. Just a couple inches over my hi-hat...

it's just dead basic snare, bass drum, 2 rack toms, low tom, hats and crash cymbal just next to that. how much is the 4-way clamp stand and will it work? my cowbell and blocks have screw clamp things on them already, but the tambourine doesnt...

Check out this thread also: http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=23501

If you have some basic tools, you could make a lot of your own mounts. Mainly you need a good vise, a propane torch, a hacksaw, some large pliers/channel locks and a 3/8" coarse thread die tapper and threader (and scrap metal).

Here is an extreme possibility that also involved welding:



For about $75, less than the cost of a few LP mounts, you could be making your own custom mounts like these:
