Brush storage


Well-known member
When I used a 22in deep kick I would put my brushes on top so I had access to them and they were safe. When I downsized to a Sonor Safari kit with it’s 16in kick the brush storage became a problem and I ruined a set when they fell too many times. So I came up with this solution: I hang brushes from floor tom using
Ordinary split rings from car keys and plant hanger S hooks from hardware store, one end bent closed. Cost of both $2.
With practise I’ve learned to grab them quickly with my right hand while inserting sticks into the 30 year old Danmar storage tube that mounts on the hat below the cymbals.
I’m not as fast as Jeff Hamilton but keeping the kick going during the change seems to work. Sorry pics are sideways 😳
