Default Tom Arm Sizing

So, a student of mine bought a used Pulse kit to start out on. The drums/rims/hardware included is mostly usable. However, it is missing floor tom legs and tom arms (you know, the kind that go through the bass drum, have an adjustable angle, and then go through either the shell or a rim mount). We are trying to find replacement arms, but I noticed replacement arms come in a couple of diameters. If I measure the diameter of the port on the bass drum ignoring the gasket, I come up with 1", but if I measure the diameter of the gasket, I get 7/8". Any ideas?

If you scroll down on that page you will see other size mounts. If there is a rubber or plastic gasket inside the mount on the bass drum I would get one to fit that.

7/8" is the correct size for Pearl arms, and most of the Pearl knock offs also use 7/8.

Only older Ludwig modular tom arms used 1"
