Default Neck pain during drum set practice - need boom music stand?

Lately I have had pain in my neck after about one hour of drum set practice while reading music sheet on a music stand behind the hi-hat. This causes me to be looking to my left side constantly while I play the book exersices.

I would like to be looking straight ahead of me when reading. I tried to google "Boom Music Stand", but the only thing that came up cost $100 bucks, which is insane.

Does anyone know of a solution, or something cheaper that can solve the problem?

I can't place my music stand anywhere else due to space limitations, so it would have to be some kind of boom stand.

I would try to rig something with a boom cymbal stand and the top of the music stand.
