Tama Gong Drum

I am wondering if any owners of a Tama gong bass drum could do me a favor and measure the distance from the bottom of the shell to the bottom of the stand mounts (not the lugs). I need to know where to place these two beasties on the shell.

Thanks muchly.

I have a mid-80's 14 X 20" TAMA gong bass drum with two L-rod brackets for mounting. Here are the measurements taken on my drum:

L-rod brackets are 2-1/16" center to center for the mounting holes.
The overall length of my L-rod mounts are 2-3/4" from top to bottom of the bracket.

From the bottom of the shell (non-batter side) to the center of the lower hole is 5-3/4".

From the bottom of the shell (non-batter side) to the center of the top hole is 7-13/16".

On the outer shell the very bottom of the L-rod bracket is 5-7/16" from the bottom of the shell (non-batter side).

Hope this helps.
