Thanks everyone.


The only stacker is the splash over the swish on my right. It is a standard issue DW 12" Cymbal Stacker. I use Ludwig Atlas Stands on that kit, and I take out the cymbal tilter threading and re-thread them to 8mm, to make them more contemporary (Most sleeves, felts, stackers available today are for 8mm stands). I simply rethread were the existing tilter was, and then I use a long 8mm hex head screw, screw it in with JB Weld and a stop nut, then cut the head off to the appropriate length. Makes them much more compatible for today's accessories.

The other two splashes are just mounted on ratchet clamps (that fit on L-rods).
