Default Hex Rack Question: Mapex TH684 to Yamaha HXTC

Hex Rack Question: Mapex TH684 to Yamaha HXTC

Mapex tube should fit Yamaha clamp because they are both 22,2 mm in diameter but I want to be sure so if anyone has a Yamaha hex rack and Mapex tom mounts could you please verify this.
Thx
QC

I also have a Hex Rack and can tell you that I was looking at getting a Pearl Ref kit not long ago and I did check to see if Pearls tom arm would fit and it did so I see no problem making this Mapex tom arm fit it's also a 22.2mm tube

Thank you Sir! I definitely get the Yamaha. I will skip the T-legs and connect the tubes to existing stands. I actually got this idea from Gibraltar 09catalog. I am after a flexible tom tom placement so that I can easily swap the bass drum when needed. When I compared Gibraltar and Yamaha I was surprised that Yamaha was not at all expensive. In fact when buying only tubes and the clamps the price difference is insignificant and I could invest it in a cup of coffee.
