    I'm assuming that's 6.5x10" popcorn snare you're referring to, right? If that's the case, then you'll have to get an ISS mount, because Optimounts won't fit a drum that shallow. You'd be best off getting the 8-10" size ISS mount (with 2 key bolts) and mounting it off of the rack that way. Another option would be to use a snare stand and get the clips that adapt the stand to fit smaller drums (I forgot the name of it, someone from Pearl could help you with that), but then that would defeat the purpose of the rack, pretty much. So yeah, your best bet is with the ISS mount.
    Who is the man, that plays a set of Pearl drums? Pat!
    'Ya d*mn right.
    Who is the man, that would risk his neck for his drum gear? Pat Brooks!
    I'm talkin' bout Pat, can ya dig?

      If I'm not mistaken, I believe that drum should have come with it's own ISS. They made a special size just for that snare I think. Ask the dealer, you might have missed out on it. Correct me if I'm wrong.

        Oops sorry! That was supposed to be on the 4x10 popcorn snare. Wrong drum, sorry!

            How does the snare sound? I've been thinking about buying one.

              This snare is a great effects snare. I cracked the ambassador
              head that it came with and put a Evans G1 on it only to be
              even more happier. It has an awsome loud crack to it for
              such a small snare. You can tune it low to make it sound
              sorta like a piccolo, or you can tune high to get that awsome
              crack!

              As for mounting, My 10x6 came with no such mounting option.
              I did see, matter of fact played, a 10x4 with an ISS mount
              on it.
