Default Mounting boom cymbal stand to Pearl style bass

hi!
first post, beginner -- BUT I did use the search function before asking ;)
(which probably had the nswer, but not being as familiar with all the ins and outs, some of it was a bit over my head)

anyway, I'm wishing to mount a boom cymbal stand to a pearl style (two through-shell receivers for "L-arm" type attackments) bass drum

I prototyped with some mismatching components and the geometry seems to work out fine

but I'm not clear on how standard tube dimensions, etc are or if there is a purpose-built unit (given all the mounting HW out there, I suspect there is)

any help would be GREATLY appreciated

if your boom is a pearl, then it'll fit in the tom mountings. i have a stand in my bass aswell, works fine.

Do you have one tom using one of the holes already? If so, you could get one of these...

It's certainly lighter to haul around than the top tube of a boom stand!

Seems to me, the Pearl tubes are standard 7/8". Are you running a single rack tom left and the ride cymbal right? That's a fairly common done thing, and if you've cobnobbled something together already, then "you is a drummer, no doubt".
