Default Roland Spd-sx Mounting - a new option for the mounting

Hey!

I'm about to do my 5th international tour with my band soon. As always I try to go as light as I can. No cymbals, no snare, no kick pedal. Just drumsticks, Rolands Spd-Sx, In-ears and a suitcase for 2 months of tour in Europe.

However, this summer I'm planning to add 3 new things:
-(2) triggers - one for the snare and one for the kick. No problem with this tiny things.
-(1) Roland VT-3 Voice Transformer. No problem with this neither. Isn't that big, and its not heavy.
- And... I want to go with a ROLAND SPD-SX mount.

During the last years I've resolved this asking for the festivals and show (on the Band Raider) to put me a sheet stand. It's so simple, firm, and till now I haven't had a Roland fall or any funny story. Works pretty good.
Also, sometimes (when there is no sheet stand) I just ask for a second snare stand (mostly, the festivals have many stages so I can get borrow one extra snare stand). However, it's difficult for me fit it as I like, in order i can play comfortably.

So... I've just came with the idea to buy the little (but heavy) Roland Spd-Sx Mount and Clamp. With no stand. Why? Because I can just adapt a Microphone straigh stand with the clamp. All the venues and shows have mic stands. So it's easy. It's just an idea. Haven't try it yet.

What are your thoughts?
1. Any other crazy ideas for not heavy and little Spd-Sx Mounting?
2. Do you think the Mic straight stand can handle the weight of the Roland Spd-sx?

Thanks!

I use this Gibraltar "grabber" out of a Yamaha tripod bottom. Mounted my SPD-S like this, for 10 years or so.

I used to gig tiny pubs using the above roland clamp on the side of a mic stand with my old SPD-8 as my entire drum kit.

I had no issues, but you need a tripod base on the mic stand. Metal round ones are too tippy. Also I never had mine particularly high up in the air, just above waist height. also there's a bit less room for your cables on the back in the center because of the mic stand continuing up and past. I don't know what the back of the SPD-SX is like, but I was fine.

I invented this today.
It's simple. It's a metal plate that has a female 3/8 thread stick to it.
so what it does?
It screws to any microphone stand male 3/8 thread. I checked that the microphone stand has the same universal size. So from now i just have to travel with this adapter and screw this up to any microphone stand.

Billiant idea. I use the Roland clamp mount and never liked its jaws on my pipes.
