Default Mounting a Yamaha tom on a DW tom stand

Will the rod from the DW stand fit into the Yamaha tom? If not, is there some kind of adapter I can use?

On my tom holder the hole is just short of an inch in diameter. So if your DW stand is about that size, it should fit.

Without modification, it won't work (of course it's not easy!).

The DW mounting uses a round (1/2"/12mm) L-arm that goes straight up, and the Yamaha comes in straight, with a Hex shaped opening for the rod.

The only way it would work is if you took off the Yamaha tom bracket, and adapted a DW tom mount to fit the YESS plate that holds the mount.

If you wanted to do this, the DW TB-12 tom bracket is the one you'd want, and I've seen it for sale between 22 & 30 bucks (each).

Good luck.

To me the easiest route would be a clamp off the stand and use the yamaha yess ball mount tom holder

As Karl said it will not directly fit onto a DW L arm

thanks guys. I've been thinking of switching over to the RIMS mounting system for a while, so if i do this, can I put a DW tom mount on the RIMS plate?

Oh yeah. If you want to witch it over to a RIMS, that's no problem.
Take off the YESS and put a DW mount on a RIMS.
I'd buy the Gauger RIMS product. There is a difference in quality IMO (having several types).

I don't know but to me the yamaha yess mounting system seems allot sturdier than a rims mount. Why are you wanting to go to DW tom mount?

Agreed. I have DW hardware exclusively but non-DW drums. I have genuine Gauger RIMS mounts on the drums, fitted to to DW tom holders. The Gauger hardware consists of the curved RIM, lug mounts and the base plate. Onto the base plate, I bolted a DW TB-12, which tightens up and holds on to the 1/2-inch rod.

I don't know much about the YESS system and if it is more durable than Gauger RIMS. I can tell you, however, that I have used this system for four years to suspend all my drums, including a 14 by 14 solid ironwood floor tom that weighs more than most peoples' bass drums. So Gauger is definitely plenty strong!

You can also call Gary Gauger and talk to him directly and he can advise you about what parts you might need. One of the things you pay extra for with Gauger is being able to speak directly with the designer so your mounting system is just right for you.
