Default Gauger RIMS

Sorry if this a newB question, but I have a situation.

I have a Mapex Pro M set, and I have a DW 9000 series tom stand, but the drum will not fit on the L arm on the stand.

Can Someone explain the Gauger RIMS, and where to order it?

You are asking about 2 different things. The L arm on the DW stands is 12.7 mm dia. This is the size that DW and Gretsch use. The rest of the world uses 10.5 mm. You can buy the L arms at the Guitar Center or get a larger tom mount to fit the 12.7 L arm.

The RIMS mount allows the shell to vibrate freely when struck providing more sustain.

Would something along the lines of this be acceptable?

As long as the screw holes line up it will work.

I'm a Mapex owner, and what you should really be looking for is called a "Hex L-Rod." This is the standard for all Mapex kits.

Mine came fast and I'm more than happy with it. You will have to get the mount part that attaches to the plate somewhere else.
