Default Inexpensive Music Stand That Mounts To High Hat Stand. DIY

I took the top section of a folding music stand that someone gave me.
I took an old Pearl stand mounted cowbell holder and I removed the mounting post from it.
I bought a 3' length of 1/4" threaded rod and two self locking nuts in a hardware store.
I bolted the threaded rod through the post holes in the former cowbell holder clamp and I custom bent the rod with my hands until I was happy with it.
I cut off the excess section of threaded rod.
I used an automotive worm drive hose clamp to secure the music stand to the rod.
The rod can easily be bent and fine adjusted as needed.

~Be sure to wear gloves and eye protection while bending the threaded rod.~
