Default How do I turn two boom stands into one double stand?

I have two Pearl B1000's that I want to convert into one double stand to save space. I've looked all over for the right part, but can't find anything that would do this:



Who makes a part that like that?

In addition to G's suggestions, if you are hanging cymbals ...

If I understand correctly, you have two of these:

What about adding one of these?

I can't find the spec's on their site, but if the Pearl B1000 rod is 1/2", this would allow you to hang a second cymbal. (I couldn't find a Pearl cymbal holder ... surely they sell one?)
I have this setup and hang a 16" crash and a 21" ride. Works well and allowed me to use one less stand. Joey

Basically what I'm trying to do is mount two crashes on one stand, I have a really symmetrical setup and have my toms centered so converting two stands into a double would free up some floor space. Like this:

Danny obviously uses Sonor hardware. I use Yamaha and Kima to do basically the same thing, if I need to.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, how are these?

I love Yamaha hardware. The triple mount in the picture is the standard Yamaha tom mount that's been around for years. That one came out of my old Recording Custom kit. I fitted it to a Yamaha 700 series bottom. I have 4 Kima tri-head units also. Both the Kima and Yamaha take 7/8 inch (22.9mm) pipe. If you wanted to stick with Pearl hardware, I think all the Pearl combo and tom stands take that size pipe. (TC-200, TC-1000, TC-800W, T-2000, T-1000, T-800W). Or buying a Pearl AX-38 and attaching it to your existing stand could be another choice.

I never would have found that, thanks for the help. Yamaha makes some of the best hardware on the market.

The Gibraltar SC-APM 3 hole Adjustabble Platform w/post will do what you want.
This piece is fantastic. I have this on two of my kits.

It's not that expensive, and you can move it around easily, and it's very road worthy.

I did my own thing in putting cymbals on, but this is the part and it works great.
sorry for the blurry pic....

I have it just straight out, but the adjustable parts can move far in, which is cool for smaller cymbals if you want them close together.



If you want to go with the Yamaha platform, I'd take your parts to the shop and make sure the tubing you have is compatible with the holes in Yamaha's platform.
