  • Which stick holder do you use?

    Iím in need of a stick holder for on stage when I drop a stick. I have a TD 11 KV kit. The frame legs are 1.5Ē in diameter. Iíve looked at a few holders but the way they clamp wonít open far enough to put it on the frame leg where Iíd like. The ones Iíve seen are made to clamp to a cymbal stand, which is smaller but I donít want it there. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Tama Powerpad stick bag... $15 and holds just enough to keep me happy without being too obtuse. You can hang it off the pad lug bolts instead of the rail if youíre okay with a more conventional bag setup.

      Well, I also have one of those Tama bags. I like it.

      But, since I have a tendency to DIY, here's a couple thoughts made mostly in jest:

      Considered and rejected: Spare holster for a 1911 - good angle built in, but doesn't hold enough sticks. And I only have right handed holsters, so that limits placement
      Considered and rejected: Half gallon milk jug with top cut wide. Works, but its looks will surely bring scorn, laughter, and pointing fingers. No matter how you paint it, it's a milk jug.

      Further exploration merited: Empty pringles can, cover in whatever color duct tape or paint you like. If you don't like the cardboard Pringles can, try Lays Stax. Similar shape and size, blue plastic.

      Hang it from the lug bolts as rdubu mentions using some elastic cord threaded through holes punched on the side. I got some of that stretch cord at Hobby Lobby to restring my Audio-Technica microphone shock mounts when the original cord gave up the stretchy.

      Frame leg 1.5" diameter. Hmm. Perhaps I'll visit the Home Depot plumbing and electrical area. They have lots of pipe and conduit in that size range, and those pipes gonna need clamps...

      Now, some folks put a lot more stock in aesthetics than I. But, gotta give the people what they want! Once the Pringles can is obtained, we can "Knock it up a notch!". Break out the spice weasel, er, sorry, colored markers and decorate like a tiny drum. Or put that color printer to use making a custom "wrap" for your stick holder. Bam!

      Ok, that does it. I'm off to create a fabulous wrap for my Pringles stick holder. Scissors and a glue stick should be sufficient for the prototype. I'll try to post a picture in the next day or so showing what I come up with. Too much time on my hands?

      Safe travels!

      Edit: here's what I did while watching Rick & Morty:

              ones that fit on a rack leg.. are the clamp type ones..
              i have a dixon one (when dixon still made good stuff) with a very strong spring .. pro mark makes a couple of those types ..
              i should think that would be good, but i don't know .. or diy something on an empty 1.5" rack clamp that you slide on a rack leg..

                  Thanks guys. I like the Tama one but not sure where Iíd hang it since there are no head screws that stand up. I finally DIYíd one out of 1-1/4Ē PVC and zip tied it to the right side end leg. Painted it black. Holds 2 pair. Thatís all I need.

                      I use one of these. I like that it's got a rigid opening, but the bag itself is soft. So I don't struggle to get sticks in and out, but they don't make a "clang" like they would in a metal or plastic cup.


                      Oh... I may have had to pay a visit to the hardware store for some longer bolts in order to clamp it around the 1.5" tubing of my kit.
