Default Mountig cymbals off the bassdrum

Since I got a tom stand coming in a few days, I think it's a good idea to mount both my crashes off the bass drums, one on each side. The thing is that the boom arms on my existing stands are kinda thin and the hole mount on the bass drum is too wide. Any ideas on what can I use to hold the boom arm shaft in place?

Can't answer that for you, but... I just mounted a splash on my bass drum, from the tom holder. I was warned it might happen, and it does: the cymbal rings a bit from the vibration of the bass drum when it is struck with the pedals. Just a minor annoyance, and it's not loud enough to notice when jamming. But I still might move it to one of the cymbal stands instead.

Might want to think about that...

I once mounted a cymbal off the tom holder, too, using one of those boom clamps. When I hit the cymbal, it gave off a nasty vibration that rattled the tom holder and the tom, so I moved it out of there. Thanks for the heads up about the cymbal ring.

New tom stand will have arms right? Use your multi-clamps on the tom arms that are in the bass drum now.

Well, the tom stand's not coming at all. I had won a Pearl tom stand for a steal on ebay (99 cents!) and now it so happens that the seller got robbed of his band equipment including the stand. So for the time being I'll keep everything as it is.

"the seller got robbed of his band equipment including the stand."

Could also be ebay seller code for- Seller is not going to allow you to rob his stand for .99

HAHAHAHA!! Yeah, I know that's what happenned, I just didn't want to make any open accusations. 99 cents was a steal on its own, but it's not my fault nobody else was interested enough to bid on that thing. All in all, he should've set a higher starting price.
