    Gretsch RB 14” value?

    Is it just me, or do the diamond plate leg mounts look too high?

    Modern Version of This Hoop Cymbal Mount?

    Thank you Geardaddy and KO!! The CBH50 looks almost perfect. I wish it had the "claw" that would grab onto the bass drum rim, BUT this is a pretty great find. Not expensive, either. This has to be much safer than the Gretsch Diamond Plate L Arm mount. Thank you very much guys! Youre the best.

    Modern Version of This Hoop Cymbal Mount?

    Hi Hop. Yes, it does look stout, but I just dont like or trust L arms....I've had too many fall on me! The cymbal is a 20 inch crash ride, and while, sure, I could just use a light cymbal stand, I'd rather mount it on the bass drum if I could do it securely. I've actually searched alot, and...

    Modern Version of This Hoop Cymbal Mount?

    If I have to make this myself, I would def start with the clamp that has a claw that securely grabs the BD hoop as seen here. This mount would be great, EXCEPT its for an "L" arm. I need to find a way to use this with a straight up vertical cymbal rod, possibly by bolting a second assembly to...

    Modern Version of This Hoop Cymbal Mount?

    Guys: Please take a look at this picture. This is a vintage bass drum hoop clamp on cymbal mount. Notice that the cymbal rod would slide VERTICALLY into the mount, (unlike an L arm). This is great, as the cymbal rod could not fall down. Is there a modern version of this, that is NOT...
