Default MultiClamp Question

I'm in the process of buying a rack for my kit. Right now the toms are mounted off of the bass drum using this Mapex I.T.S. Mounting System, which is basically a double tom mount with a hole in the middle for a boom shaft/arm.

My question is will a single multiclamp be able to hold up dual tom holder or do i need to mount them separately on two tom holders?

It depends ever so slightly on the size and weight of the toms you are suspending, and if you're doing any weird angles... but I have used a single multiclamp to hold up a 10" and 12" tom with a double mount off a rack before.

In fact, using a super-multiclamp (the one Gibraltar offers that has the extra-deep mounting area) I have clamped a short rack pipe on a cymbal stand and suspended a 14" and 16" tom and three cymbals (14", 18" and 20").

This should not be any problem. I would recommend using a memory lock on the clamp, though.

Myself I would mount each one separately on there own Mapex tom arm held by separate rack clamps. That way you can have more control over each one separately. I use 8 separate Mapex tom arms on my rack and I love them.
