Thread: Dual cymbal stand

    Default Dual cymbal stand

    Hello everyone. On the right side of my current 4 piece setup I have a 20" Zildjian K ride and an 18" A Custom crash. The crash is on a Yamaha single braced boom stand, and the ride is on a Gibraltar boom attachment that is clamped to the stand. I crash on my ride quite regularly and I'm not sure how much longer this setup will survive with those two cymbals.

    I'd prefer to not have to mount each cymbal on a separate stand, I like to minimize the space that my cymbal stand legs take up. I've looked at the DW 9000 dual cymbal stand, and everything I read about it says that it's rock solid. However I've also read that it is a pain to lug around because it is so heavy. Has anyone used this stand before? And do you have any alternative suggestions?

    Look at the TAMA Roadpro or Pearl 900/2000 series stands. Both are double braced and have boom arms that tuck away if not needed. Either is under $100 USD and totally rock solid. Then buy a Gibraltar extension for the ride. Works great in either case all for about $100 USD total.

    ^What he said. We can both attest to Tama's strength and durability for sure. But don't forget to check out Pearl stands too, they're pretty rock solid.

    I have two Gibraltar dual boom stands not sure of the series but I love them both! They are solid and have a nice sturdy leg design. The bonus on them is that the top can hold three things separately. Meaning two for the booms and another opening to mount a tom or even another boom arm. I use one on the left and one on the right of my travel set. It is the only stand on that side, holding a crash, a tom and two splashes, one of the splashes being on a clamp I added. The other side holds a crash, Ride and China.. two stands.. bam call it done.

    I would keep the ride on the main stand and have the crash on the extenssion arm. Just get a medium to heavy boom stand, a two-hole multi-clamp and a boom arm (Liberty I has nice, stable ones for like $15 on Steve Weiss Music). You can get a more expensive arm from another brand but I've had these for years and they've lasted longer than some other brands.
