Default Pearl DLX Cymbal Stand Tom Tom Mount

Hey All!

I have a Pearl DLX kit form the 80's. I would like to move the location of my 10" rack tom from the top of my kick drum to my left cymbal stand. This will allow me to move my 13" rack tom to the former 10" location. I can then move my ride over to where the 13" was located...which would put my ride in a more natural location for me.

Problem is I don't think today's Pearl hardware is compatible with my DLX mounts. I am attaching a pic of the 13" mount for your consideration. Can anyone tell me what "series" of hardware\mount this is? Might have to look on eBay for this one, but I need to know the name of the DLX hardware series.

THANKS in advance!
Mickster

That mount is common. I believe that it is 7/8 inch dia.
Musicians friend has it for under $20.

Jeez I am such a dork! I was making this way too complicated. I didn't think about using the existing tube that mounts the 13" now located on the kick. You are suggesting something like this I presume: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/drums...40027000000000

I wasn't sure if you needed a clamp or you were missing one of the mounts.
Either way Pearl hardware is easy to come by.
Gibraltar also makes compatible Pearl style tom mount hardware.

I just realized that Pearl tubes are 7/8 inch or 22mm dia and the clamp that you have selected is 19mm or 3/4 inch.
You have to select a larger clamp that will fit the Pearl tom arm.
