  • Anybody Know of a Good Stick Holder?

    I have been searching for a rack mountable stick holder. All I have found is the cheap plastic tube with the potato chip bag clip for mounting (forgot the mfg. name?) and the Gibralter red leather bag. I think both are a little cheezy..or not worthy of the V's, I should say.

    Anybody know of any others? I would appreciate web links if you know of any. Thanks.

    Yeah . . I know two: My left hand and my right hand!!

    I'd go with functionality here (rather than aesthetics).

    Is it a stick bag that you're after (ie. something to carry all your sticks around in)?

    Or a holder (ie. something which holds a couple of sticks whilst you're playing should you need to throw one at the lead guitarist and thus require a replacement)?

    Many bags can be rack mounted to present you with your entire colection of sticks (my preference) and therefore double as a 'holder'

    At a V-drum clinic earlier this year, the tech 'manufactured' a stick holder using the trusty 'Gaffa' tape. Essentially two loops of tape (folded over so not sticky on the inside) attached to a leg of the rack - one about 20cm above the other - the lower one being 'capped off' with some gaffa tape. The sticks merely go inside the two loops and rest on the 'capped off' piece at the bottom.

    Just 'cause the V's themselves have cost us heaps, it doesn't mean that we have to spend heaps more on 'accessories'!

      Pro-Mark makes a Stick Depot. It costs ~$10.00. I've had one for years. It's 2 metal tubes attached to a clamp. Too small for 1 1/2" tubes. Always looking to build a better mousetrap, I overhauled mine when I got the V's. I bought a plastic clamp at one of those "dollar stores". It perfectly fits the 1 1/2" tube on the rack. I had some old chromed tube from lamps and kid toys. I cut it down to length and bought some plastic caps from Lowes (the kind that fits the legs of chairs to protect the floor). I capped the bottom of the tubes. I bolted one tube onto each side of the clamp handle and took some cable ties and attached three more tubes to each side. I've been using it for over 2 yrs now. They are very accessible (especially when you drop a stick during play), they're inconspicuous and I think they are better than bag caddy's. You could substitute PVC pipe and paint it to match your rack. Shouldn't take more than an hour to make.

        I find Pringles tubes make excellent stick holders - Gaffa to your rack at an appropriate angle!

                  Go with he promark stick depot. I use one on each side in case I drop either stick while playing. These have proved to be invaluable when playing gigs.

                    Here's another stick holder tip (at least for the V-Custom & Gibraltar racks): I removed the end caps on the side arms, and put a stick (or 2) in the end of an arm tube on each side, protruding about 4-5". They're easy to grab if I lose one. I use a stick bag hanging close by to store alternate sticks.

                      From a previous post on the same subject:

                      Here's a cool tip for a good stick stash:
                      I'm surprised that Gibraltar or someone else hasn't already marketed this, but simply take a right-angle pipe clamp, a plastic end cap, and a roughly 10" section of rack or PVC pipe and you're in business. Attach the clamp at the appropriate side and angle on your drum rack and then clamp the section of pipe to it. Voila. Looks cool and works like a charm. The advantage to this is that you can set this little gizmo anywhere on your drum rack. I use one where the sticks are positioned right under my hi-hat and another close to my ride cymbal. So if I drop a stick from either hand, I've got a replacement right there without having to reach for it or even look at it.

                      You can also use one of those clamps that are made for connecting a "foot bar" with a vertical pipe, although the positioning flexibility isn't as great as the former method.

                      Here are the clamps I'm referring to: http://www.americanmusical.com/item.asp?UID=2001072916394043&item=GIR+GPRRA&sprc= True[/UR L]
