Default People with 2 Bass Drums in your setup HELP!

I have a question for all of you who have two bass drums in your setup: Is it possible to set up a 2 or 3 leg hi hat stand right next to the pedal of the left bass drum, or will I have to purchase a leg-less hi hat stand? I saw that Pearl has a clamp that attaches a hi hat stand to the bass drum, but I'm not sure if that will work with a 2-3 leg stand. Can anyone shed some light on this?

the clamp can be used with most any stand.
you simply fold up the legs and mount it to the top of the kick batter hoop.

I find it very handy to have 2 hi-hat stands. One, a regular 3 legger. The other, legless. Even though I stopped using 2 kicks a long time ago, I still use a legless in a lot of circumstances. When floorspace can become a premium. Being, with my electronics, I might have a loop station foot controller and volume pedal in my left foot domain also. I have an older Tama legless. My 3 legger is a Yamaha single braced (what would be 700 series), similar to what Steve Gadd uses/used. I bought both used, for the price of what one "new" hi-hat stand would cost. Clamping a 2 or 3 legger to a kick will sometimes/always/maybe work, but you may have to "compromise" somewhere. I'd rather have the "right tool for the job" and sacrifice nothing.

Yeah, your best bet is to get the clamps and fold up the legs like tbmills said.

Here's a cheap clamp that will get the job done:

I've foldedd up the legs and attached it to the left bass drum for years and it really places the high-hat right where I need it. I don't have a rack. I've got a double bass with 3 mounted toms 2 floor toms and two high hats a ride cymbal and 4 cymbals and everything fits, sometimes cluttered, but fits.

Ok thanks everyone that cleared up a lot! I'll probably go with that Gibraltar clamp.

Yes, the post about using the legless hi-hat stand I agree with. You just have to make sure that they are clamped to another stand for support.

They are much easier to position than a traditional 3-leg hi-hat stand.

IMO the rods that come with the hoop clamp attachment aren't long enough. I have the Pearl one and it reaches but barely. I normally use my two legged stand without clamping. Good luck

Totally do-able with a legged stand and clamp, but I went with a single post stand to try and get it as snug to the left kick pedal as I could.

Decided I didn't want to clamp anything to my wood hoops, so I grabbed a couple 90deg clamps and used a spare piece of tube (my old hi-hat stand) to connect to an aux snare.

No the greatest pic, but gets the idea across:

Tama MHA623 clamp works with a 2-leg Yamaha HS1100.
