Because it honestly doesn't make a difference if it's used or not. I could use all the extra clamps, and little scratches doesn't matter to me.

I dont think anyone of us were trying to get you to buy a new rack. We were just pointing out the fact it wasn't a good deal for YOU! Should offer him less money.

You can mount a cow bell on a cymbal boom arm pretty easy. They also sell different accessory mounts.

seems great at first but i was never a fan of racks. its easier just to use cymbal stands IMO

Gibraltar with a bunch of clamps and arms. Isn't this cool? I'll just need to run out to Alto Music and get some cymbal sleeves/felts/mates. Maybe I could sell the drum stands I don't use.

Now I have a question, if I wanted to mount one of the boom arms on those poles with the legs, what clamp would I buy?

hell yes, a fellow altos patron. That music stor just gives me a huge smile every time i walk in. i Remember when it was a tiny little hole in the wall shop up on the other end of 211. You used to be able to have in store jams because everything was all right next to each other. lol
