    Default Stacking Cymbals?

    hey guys,
    I have been looking at lots of pics of drumkits that have an upside down cymbal stacked on top of a normal cymbal was wondering how you do it?
    Is there a proper way of doing it that minimises the chance of breaking the cymbals?? If any of you guys could tell me how to do it or send me a link on it that would be great
    Cheers

    Use a smaller and/or thinner felt to separate the stacked cymbals, because when you tighten the wingnut down, with an extra cymbal and felt, everything will be really tight on the stand, which is bad for your cymbals. They need to be able to move and swing as freely as possible, so to absord the shock from your sticks better. That's if you just keep them on the same stand as is. But you could also buy a cymbal stacker such as the ones pictured below to give both cymbals more space to vibrate and they'll also be further apart and sometimes adjustable.

    Pretty much you'd just put cymbals smaller ontop, with felts in between them.

    Depends what you're searching for, but as Pixel said, 2 cymbals on top of each other, with felts between them. You can try to take the felt out, flip the top cymbals, put 3 of them together, or whatever. But with felts you won't destroy the cymbals.

    Mike Portnoy and Terry Bozzio-type stacks:
    1) 8" China Kang on 8" Splash
    2) 10" China Kang on 10" Splash
    3) 12" Mini Chinese on 14" Crash
    The top cymbals (Chinas) sit directly on the bottom cymbals (splashes/crash) with no felt in between. I keep the loose on the stand (I don't clamp them down tight) in order to let them move as freely as possible and to let them "breathe" so "choking" is minimized.

    I'm pretty sure they're just two cymbals stacked........ not Max Stax

    Those aren't real max staxes. The top chinas (of the 10 and 12") say "hand hammered", and if those were max staxes it would say "signature"

    Correct, except for the 12"/14" combo.
    They are:
    1) 8" HH China Kang/8" AAX Splash
    2) 10" HH China Kang/10" AAX Splash
    3) 12" HH Mini Chinese/14" AAX Studio Crash
    I believe Portnoy's was a 12" AA Mini Chinese/14" Jack DeJohnette Crash.
    I also have a 12" AA Mini Chinese/12" HH Splash that isn't pictured.

    that's still close to mikes origonal low stax. its still a 12" mini china over a 14" crash... closer than the 13" el sabor splash over 14" mini K china I was using
