Default Tom Mounting Systems.

I have an old Peavey kit (which is like a Pearl Forum or Export if you ask me) that I use at band practice but I want to upgrade the mounting system as the Pearl mounting system is terrible. What kind of mounting systems could I use? Preferably something that's like a Tama/Mapex (Omni-ball?) as I'm more used to them. The cymbal hardware on the kit are some vintage Tama one's so mounting onto cymbal stands is not an issue!

Thanks guys!
Mapex, Sabian, Vic Firth.

It's all just personal choice. Select a mount that you like and install it.
Gibraltar makes a good ball mount in addition to the mounts that you mentioned.
They are all good mounts.
If you want to clamp it to a cymbal stand then go with that.
I have been getting into rail mounts as of late. I have them on two of my 4 piece kits.
Experiment and have fun with hardware configurations.
I kind of like old drums:)
