Default Yamaha 3-hole mounting system + other stand?

Hello

I play a Yamaha SC 5-piece set and recently switched to an offset layout for my toms. I have the Yamaha 3-hole reciever and enjoy using it, and wanted to use a stand for it instead of buying a whole new unit. Basically, I need a base to stick the reciever into.

Anyway, I kept reading that any Yamaha cymbal stand should accept the reciever. Well, I tried my Yamaha boom cymbal stand that has two levels of telescoping bars. The smaller hole was too small, and the larger whole was too large. I found that if I tightened enough, it seems to clasp around the reciever's tube, but it doesnt feel snug. Only with a memory lock do I feel secure that it wont slide down, however, I dont like how easily it rotates!

When Yamaha says that any cymbal stand will accept the 3-hole reciever, do they mean that it will fit in snugly, or that it will fit, period??

I don't own Yamaha gear, but with my Tama hardware it depends on two things:

1. the year the stand was made
2. the hardware line (i.e.-RoadPro, Titan, etc.).

I have Tama hardware going back at least 15 years or more and I can mix and match some of it but not all.

If you can measure the shaft size of the "3-hole receiver" (diameter in mm) you should be able to cross reference that number to a stand that will fit it.

You may even try calling or emailing Yamaha, or finding a Yamaha forum and ask there.

I have offset toms on my Stage Custom. I moved the tom mount arm to a Pearl cymbal stand ant it fit perfectly. No memory lock needed.



The stand is at least 20 years old and I don't know the model number. I bought the Stage Customs new in 2011

It should fit perfectly. The diameters of the various stand sections have changed over the years, but the mount's tube diameter has remained the same. You just need to find the cymbal stand that will work, or buy one of these: http://usa.yamaha.com/products/music...bletom-stands/

The YAMAHA tube dia is 7/8"

So that's what you're looking for, its a somewhat common size.

^ This.

Both Pearl and Yamaha use 7/8 in most of their cymbal arms.

But not every full stand has a 7/8 section.

Well, after reading about your guys' success using Yamaha stands for the 3-hole receiver, I just have to assume that maybe the stand I have is too old? I bought it new about 10 years ago.

Well not every stand base can receive the 7/8" size.

Only the special tomstands, dtxm12 stand and some of the 700 series cymbal stands do.

It's not that it's too old. It's because not all Yamaha cymbal stands have that size (new or old).
