You should either:
1) Tune your bass drum with the tom on it to get the sound you want. Or...
2) Get a cymbal stand-mountable tom mount. These typically don't work well with flat-based stands, however, unless you put the legs in *juuuuuust* the right spot. I would suggest using a Yamaha 600 series cymbal stand with your tom mount, and check out the link in my signature about my kit, which shows how I have done it the past 7 years with great-a success!
