    Nice set but I donít understand the cymbals with what looks like upside down cymbals on them. Which one do you hit? (I know some players think itís a dumb question)

    If you're not familiar with the concept, there are no dumb questions
    It's called 'piggybacking' cymbals. You put 2 or more cymbals on one stand/cymbal arm this way. It's a cheap solution to add more sounds to your set without having to get a separate cymbal arm.
    I mount the splashes the normal way with the bell up. Then i put a cymbal felt on top of it and put the accent cymbal with the bell down above it (with another felt and then add the wingnut). It's not intended to hit both cymbals at the same time.

    ok, thanks for the information. It does look nice. Just wondering about the cymbals that are upside down, does it have the same sound as if it was upright? Asking because most people say listen to a cymbal before you purchase it so you will know if you are going to like the sound but I have not seen sales of cymbals in stores in that format.

    These 2 cymbals are Paiste Accents; the 4" on top of the 8" splash and the 6" on top of the 10" splash. Considering their size they're thick cymbals and they can hold up being hit on the edge this way. I wouldn't recommend doing this with crash or splash cymbals though... probably the reason you won't see cymbals mounted this way in shops.
    Soundwise they're a bit more focused this way and give a more 'absolute' tone. Mounted the right way the cymbal opens up more and you'd get a more broader sound.

    I enjoy seeing all the photos of these fabulous kits! I'm old...and my days of hauling the larger configurations around, loading them in, tearing down, and loading out are over. Just playing a basic 4-piece kit for most projects these days....and I love my Bop Kit! Factory photos do not do the finish justice... /Users/steve/Pictures/Photos Library.photoslibrary/resources/proxies/derivatives/24/00/2419/UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_2419.jpg
