I have a Tama kit with a bass drum mounted double tom holder.
It has a 1 inch diameter down tube.

I wanted to find a stand base for the tom holder so that I could floor stand my two toms.

A double tom stand costs about $150.
I didn't want to spend that much on a stand.
I only paid about $200 for the drum kit.

Many hi-hat stands will accept a 1 inch down tube.
I found an old Tama hi-hat stand for free and I hack sawed the stirrup and pedal off of it and I gutted the stand and kept the stand base.

I now have my floor stand for my toms.
It cost me nothing to make it!

I kind of like old drums:)
