Are there stands that can hold multiple cymbals or maybe an attachment to do that? I think it would be more cost effective to have 2 stands holding 4 cymbals rather than 4 stands? At present, a drum rack isn't practical for me.
I have been consolidating as many items onto a stand as possible lately, and I got two triple-boom cymbal stands from Po Boy drums that made a huge difference. Several other companies make triple-stands, and usually you can fit either a cymbal boom arm or tom holder in their receptacles. Then you've got a lot more configuration choices. There are also clamps you can attach to a single stand that would let you put more cymbals on it. It all tends to add up though; you can probably spend as much on consolidating items as you would on individual stands.
when i was younger and decided that it would be cool to have 6 diff cymbals, i just bought some gibralter cymbal arms and attached them to my cymbal stands. They worked great and even held up my z custom mega bell ride (the heaviest cymbal I have ever seen)
