Default Mounting Pearl toms on DW stands

Hello all.

I just sold my DW set, and found a GREAT deal on a Pearl Reference kit. I still have my 9000 series DW cymbal stands, and would like to mount the toms to them. Can anyone advise on what tom arms and clamps would work for this?

Thanks!

I don't think there is anyway to mount the Pearl toms onto the DW tom mounts, as they use a pretty different system.

Although you could get Pearl tom arms and attach them to any stand with a basic multi-clamp.

That is what I meant. I want to mount my Pearl toms to my DW cymbal stands using multi-clamps and tom arms. What I am asking is what particular clamps and arms do I need.

Thanks.

For the Pearl mounting arms, any tom mount arm with a 7/8" tube will work.

For the multiclamps, any multiclamp that will tighten to 7/8" will work. (This means almost any adjustable multiclamp on the market.) I highly recommend paying a buck or two more and getting a multiclamp with hinges rather than an El Cheapo not-hinged clamp.

Gibraltar and (of course) Pearl make good-quality tom arms and clamps that will fit. But these are some of the most common tom arms on the planet. I bet you could find a great deal on eBay.

For the tom arms get the TH-2000. The gyrolocks are great and you can maneuver them anywhere. As for clamps, if you want to mount one go with an AX-25/AX-28 (preference) or if you are mounting two, go with the AX-38. You can get info on all these on the Pearl website.

For a second there I felt like a Pearl spokesman.

Thanks for the advice. That is exactly what I needed to know.
