I have a Premier XPK bass drum that I wish to use a Mapex Tom with.. I can just buy a mapex holder and clamp it to my cymbal stand But i have a chance to buy a newish but cheap Premier double tom holder... does anyone know if the Premier holder will accept the mapex tom?
It wont fit. I've tried an Orion tom on a Premier holder and the Premier L arm is too thick and it's round. As pointed out the Mapex arms are hex and also thinner. No help to you, but a Mapex holder takes a Premier tom. I cant compare the ball arm sizes as I'm hundreds of miles from home.
You could change the tom mount block to a Premier 392-35 one, which would be far superior to the Mapex one. That would obviously fit the double Prem tom holder and give more adjustment verstility than the Mapex one does. There are several 392s on ebay most of the time.
