Default bass tom holder in a stand base possible?

Wanting to know if they make a stand base that will fit the 1" down tube of a bass drum tom mount. I want to mount my toms more to the left and figure there has to be a stand base large enough to fit the toms mount. anyone ever do this and if so what base did u use.
thanks

I made a double tom stand for my Tama kit from my old Tama hi-hat stand base that I hadn't used in years. I removed the pedal and spring, etc and I inserted the 1' Tama double tom holder into the tube.
It works great. I have been using it for years.
I even hung a few cymbal holders from it as you can see.

Another way to do it for low cost is to use two wrist clamps spaced about 6" or more apart to hold the 1" tube to a heavy duty cymbal stand base that you probably already own. (See clamp pic)

You can buy a double stand from Gibraltar that has two mounts that will accept the ball L arms that you already probably have on your bass drum tom holder. They cost about $95. The stand comes without ball L rods.

Yamaha 700 series cymbal stands have a bottom section that accepts 1" down tubes.

I have old Ludwig and Gibraltar boomstands where the base fits the double tom holders from Ludwig and Tama. You might have to look for the bigger, heavy duty ones.

Sure are, but I've held 14" and 16" toms and up to four cymbals (20" ride, 20" and 14" china, 18" crash) on one before with no problems whatsoever.
