I have two of these on my kit now. I have a number of cymbals i like to use but for small stages I needed to lose some stands. I was able to eliminate two stands by stacking a 14" stack on my 18" china and my 8" splash over my 10". Not only has it simplified my setup but it also opened new ways of approaching playing being able to have two sounds in essentially the same location. you need at least 2"+ of difference between the cymbals or you risk them hitting each other, and depending on your stand you may have to use extra felts between the cymbals to properly control the bottom cymbal. Overall these are the best solution for stacking cymbals I have ever found. They are also available in 6" and 8" models.
