I'm going to pick a matching kick today to my w5 kit (at least assume it's a w5 by the pictures) but it has the old style tom mount on it (pictured) and I wanted to know if it would accept a cymbal arm or if there was a way to make a cymbal arm work to mount my ride on it.
I'm getting this kick so I can use my pearls in a small light weight config instead of my practice kit. I've used my virgin kick with a snare stand and a boom off of a cymbal stand for the ride, but I want to be able to use the least amount of hardware as I can. (4 piece, hats, 1 crash, and ride)
I've also thought about the Gibraltar sc-gbdca mount, but I don't know how it would hold up to me crashing on my ride.
