Looking for thoughts or suggestions on a bass drum hoop mounted cymbal arm with a height of 24 inches from the hoop clamp. I'm specifically going for the look of the cymbal being mounted this way.

Currently the only product I can find that is even close is the Pearl CHB75CA. but it is only about 18 inches at max height: https://pearldrum.com/products/hardware/boom-cymbal-holders/chb75ca
I actually have one of these and used the clamp and L rod, then added a Tama MC5 clamp: https://www.tama.com/usa/products/detail/compact_clamp.html
And finally a Tama short MCB30EN boom arm: https://www.tama.com/usa/products/detail/boom_arm_ratchet_arm.html

This gives me the height I need, but every time I hit the bass drum, the cymbal (a new 8" Zildjian A Custom Splash) hits against the cymbal stand shaft and makes a distinct noise that I don't want to hear. The boom arm is new and is using Tamas latest reversible cymbal bottom with a Quick-Set Cymbal Mate on top.

Any ideas to reduce the vibration going through this?

I use a Gibraltar telescoping cymbal arm attached to a DW hoop clamp. I mount a 17" A Zildjian Thin Crash cymbal on it and even on recordings there are absolutely no sympathetic vibrations from the bass drum going through the cymbal. Maximum height is 23½".

The old style Ludwig ones that have been around forever will do 22”. It works well with the Pearl hoop mount
