How can i mount a rack tom on a straight cymbal stand?

i dont like mounting toms on bass drum so i wonder how i can mount a rack tom to a STRAIGHT cymbal stand. Do i need other tools? besides the stand?

You need a stand clamp. What I did on my kit was I removed the 2 toms and the 2 pipes (the tom holders) that goes into the bass drum. I then bought 2 stand clamps and attached it to 2 of my crash cymbal stands (one one each side of my bass drum). Then placed the tom holders (one on each stand) on to the clamps. This got the toms off the bass drum and onto the cymbal stands (leaving the tom mount holes open on the bass drum).

That's the easiest (and cheapest) method without doing anything too drastic to your setup. The main thing you want is the toms off the bass right?

Here's one that Pearl sells that's pretty universal:

Here's a 3 way clamp from Pearl:

Don't forget that you're going to have to adjust your stand's feet for the extra weight. Otherwise, the stand's going to fall over.
