roto tom position

I'm trying to position a roto tom and I can't use the stand because I'm placing it right over the bassdrum. what I've done is duct taped it to a small cymbal stand, but I don't look at that as a long term solution. it also sags because the duct tape doesn't keep it steady. thoughts?

Use a RIMS mount, and then cut down the center bolt, or just replace it with a shorter one.​
I've mounted 8, 10, 12 inch roto toms on RIMS mounts ... they work great.​

You've got all the parts you need. Use the top tube of the roto-tom stand, which that black roto-mount-thang is attached, and use it in place of the knurled cymbal boom​
or
Attach the black roto-mount-thang to the end of the knurled cymbal boom.​

the first option doesn't work because the top tube is too wide too fit into the boom thing. I might try the second option, but it will require some power tools.

thanks for the responses harry

Indeed, I am a firm believer in "power tools" ... I mounted 5 roto toms onto 5 Tama Titan boom arms, with those black block widgie thangs, back around 1980.​
