    Default Suitable Double Tom Stand for Mapex Saturn V ?

    I've been searching for a double tom stand that is suitable for a Saturn V but am having trouble locating one. Does it have to be Mapex or can like a Gibraltar double tom stand be ok? I just want to make sure I have the measurements correct.

    If anyone knows of some that are suitable that would be great.

    Do you know what size they are? You could use a DW/PDP stand

    Is this a new kit? I know Saturn V comes with a virgin kick, but I assume they provided tom mounts with it? All you should need is a couple of dog-bone clamps and a heavy-duty cymbal stand if you want to hang them together.

    If you only have the tom mounts and not the base platform (tripod) you can use the Gibraltar GP-6274 which is the bottom base platform of the Gibraltar 9613PM tom stand (shaded area). The GP-6274 has a 1" receiver that will accept the 1" TH-682 tom holder.





    Edit:

    Looks like the GP-6274 has been discontinued and the only option for a base platform is the 6713DP. It may not be a practical solution since you'll have to use the L-rods only from the TH-682

    no problem. When I checked it out, all I saw was the mount itself, that's all I have, not the base (tripod) Thanks for the help though.

    TH682 does not come with the stand---a $20 dog-bone clamp will mount it to any cymbal stand.

    awesome thanks!!! i'll check it out.....ordered another Paragon China today so this will be on the backburner.

    I have the tom mount and I've put it in a base stand but the base stand is just a little too big around and wobbles just a bit.

    and I'm not sure if the other mapex tom stands could hold the Saturns or not.
