Default Will a DW Tom Stand work for a Gretsch Tom?

Is the stand compatible with gretsch Tom mounts? Early 80's Gretsch USA Toms. I don't have the size of the receiver or the lug.

Most dw tom stands have 12.7mm L rods.
Most toms other than dw have 10.5 or 9.5 mm receivers.
You can buy mounts for your drum to fit the dw stand and retrofit.
My advice is to get the info about the stand and the drums so that you know the compatibility.

Thanks! Just what I was looking for. Is there a resource where one can get these measurements?

Should give you an idea about the tom arm sizes/compatibility. As said, DW and Gretsch should work fine.
