Default Gretsch hinged tom bracket (G9025): does it work with 10.5mm rods?

Hello,

I have a question about the Gretsch GS-9025 tom bracket (http://www.rockfactory.co.uk/proddet...am-gre-gs-9025).

I know they are designed to fit 12.7 mm rods, but I need to know whether they can also be tightened to grip the smaller 10.5mm rods in my (Tama) tom holder.

Thanks a lot.

Alex

I doubt it. These look exactly like the ones that come on the Gretsch tom mount (RIMS-style), and they are too big to go onto a 10.5 mm tom arm.

Hi Brad,

Thanks for your reply. This bracket is indeed the one used in the RIMS system for the toms.

Before reading your post I went to a store to try a Gretsch tom with the 9025 hinged bracket on a 10.5mm rod and you're right, it doesn't fit (too loose).

I guess I'll have to replace one of the L-rods on my Tama tom holder with a Gibraltar 12.7mm L-rod. No biggie.


Thanks again,


Alex


PS. By the way, do you know where I can buy these hinged brackets for a reasonable price? I live in Spain and they don't sell them locally. I looked at a bunch of US stores and those that have them are rather pricey (must be the "vintage" effect of all things Gretsch :-D).
