Default hardware for tom stand

So basically I have a ludwig boom/tom stand that looks exactly like this.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Double-Duel-Tom-...item483dbd3a3b

not alot of stuff, basically just a clamp and those things shaped like a gun. I also got some other random stuff that I can't seem to figure out what they do. So my question is wat other hardware stuff do I need to put my Mapex Saturn tom on it. Also, Should I put 2 toms on 1 tom/boom or 1 tom on each.

Take off the Ludwig tom arms (the things "shaped like a gun") and replace them with Mapex, Tama or PDP tom arms (or any other L-shaped tom arm that's 10.5 mm in diameter).

Whether you put one or two toms on each stand is up to you and how you want to set up your kit. Which toms were you thinking of mounting on this stand; what size toms do you have?

This would work right? I was planning on putting 13" on that stand. btw, i measured the hole on my mapex saturn and its like 1/2 an inch. So I guess its 12.7 mm

Hmmm. I'm taking back my previous edition of this post. Looks like Mapex uses a hex rod for the Saturn. Use the hex rod version of the Gibraltar tom arm, or the Mapex original instead. Don't use a rounded one.

Mapex owners, a little help / fact checking, please?

Lol mk. thanks. Btw, is it possible to place the tom in the same position that it'd be if the kick wasn't virgin? I was just gonna put a mount on it, but then I heard that the mount alone weighs a lot so I decided to keep it virgin.

Yes Mapex uses a hex l-rod for toms.

If you want two toms over the kick in the same positions they'd be if you flew them off the kick (non-virgin), you'll need two cymbal stands, one on either side of the kick, each one with one of those hex tom arms clamped to it. Similar to the set shown here.

If you want them offset to the left so that your ride can swing in over the kick a little more efficiently, use a double tom/cymbal boom setup similar to this.
