Examples of Mapex's TS965A triple stand in action!

X was asking for pics of triple stands in action.   Here it is used on three different brands of kits!  I will be so glad when I can take pics in the loft, with natural lighting.  This basement sucks for pictures!  I almost bought a photo light.  I still might.

BTW, you should totally get a photo light! You can always get a simple one. a three pack of impact lights is plenty great for most things. Inexpensive too. I use it for standard lighting with standard bulbs and when I take photo's I switch over to the photo - light balanced bulbs. I don't know if Canada - US shipping is any good but B&H photo video is my one source.

Very efficient.  I need to get one of those crossbar pieces that you use for your spashes.  I have a couple of DW Dogbones, but a double ended arm that attaches in the middle like that would be perfect.

Part number is a dwsmMG1.  They are very strong, with a nice chrome finish.  You can have one cymbal arm sticking out or two.  You can also adjust how much of the arm you want sticking out.  I had extra Mapex arms kicking around, but you could use any company.

i have some doggy parts too... and they can be really handy.

but they are soo freaking heavy! I know they are indestructible on one hand but i have stands that are lighter than a single dogbone!

It would be great if DW would make some of these items in a lighter version... not everyone has guitarists that crashes into your drums and smashes their guitar on your cymbals.

did you stick two arms in the clamp or weld the two together?

You just place them in, one behind the other so they look like one rod from any sort of difference.  This way you can still slide them forward or backward, depending on how big the cymbal is, and how far away from the crash above it you want.

huh, so you can have two boom arms on one "side" of the clamp? I am looking at the pic of the clamp and the near side is where you would clamp it to the stand... the perpendicular (far) side looks to be where you clamp the cymbal arms.I can't tell from the picture but there is just one clamp for "one" tube right? Maybe you can take a pic from the other side if you have a moment. I see from your picture now that there are two arms overlapping each other but I am not seeing how the arms are mounted/fixed in place.

Some close ups.  The first one is of my Monster kit rack.  I did a little custom mod by adding a piece of the stainless rack pipe to the front so that I could snap the DW logo on it.   I figured since most of the rack was DW parts, that I should give them their due!  Four years after the fact I still think DW makes the best all round rack out there.  I would probably never spend the $3000 to build one again!   :)

ahhhh, got it. So you have the arms side by side and you clamped them together. Thanks!

 

3k for a rack is pretty intense cash.

But if you are a satisfied customer, that's all that matters in the end.

That was for the rack, and all the stands and mounts attached to it. It was fun designing.
