Default Snare stands for deep snares

howdies - I just inherited a snare drum that someone made out of a 14"x14" Gretsch tom; I've re-edged it and it sounds wonderful, but I can't get the top of it low enough to play sitting down (I'm tall, but I sit low) with any of the stands I own.
Any recommendations for snare stands for deep snares? Thanxox

Pearl make a stand with a low basket to hold a deep snare, but I'm not sure a 14 x 14 would even fit. Man that's a deep snare drum!! If it's a floor tom conversion, could you use the old brackets and floor tom legs?

Almost like a floor snare. Couldn't you set the legs low enough so you can get the perfect height and angle. I mean, if ya don't need a snare stand, don't bother getting one.

I think you would have to Rims mount it, like a "floor" mounted tom.

The lowest snare stand I found was a Ludwig one. I don't know the model number or anything, but it was a newer model, and I was able to mount my 14x10 marching snare on it and still have it be too low...

14 x 14?

Is it a 14 x 14 snare now?

If so, yes- put legs on it like a floor tom... best snare stand ever, takes up no room in the hardware bag.

I agree with Les on the legs, & you'll be able to set it at any height you want.

If you don't want to drill, use a RIMS floor tom mount.
The ring around the drum will be low, so it won't interfere with anything.

Have fun with that beast!

The Ludwig Modular low basket snare stand goes lower than the DW.
The Pearl low version 2000 goes way down also.

The Pearl is probably the lowest, it's great quality, and the suspension grip doesn't choke the drum.
