Storing cymbals - what's your approach?


Active member
Hi guys,

Was reading through the post on "how many rides & hi-hats" we all have and realized we all have the same hoarding problem, so that's good to know :D

Curious about what your storage method is?

I have a box I made (inspiration from RDavidR from Youtube) and just lean cymbals against each other, but I don't love it as I feel it puts too much pressure on them

What does everyone out there do to store cymbals?

On their edge, as the cymbal companies and larger shops do.

Well I don't have a lot of cymbals to store. I might have about 6 and they're all sitting on the floor leaning up against the wall and my drum room

oh man...I made those mistakes once....just once! It took days to clean up the mess
And four of the neighbors were never heard from again. . . come to to think of it, never did care for them neighbors.

And I’m assuming someone’s already mentioned the obvious place to stash 5 or 6 of your cymbals is on your kit.
