You are obviously looking here because you need to replace one of these. The Roland design is inherently flawed. Very brittle and low tensile strength, in other words if tightened enough to hold the drum, it the clamp will fatigue, crack and then you will replace it again! I suggest buying Gibralter's Road Series or other universal clamp for rack systems - it will not fail or break and only a few bucks more than this product. Your vdrums will be inifinitely more road worthy, even if you move the kit 1-2 times a year.
I've used the Roland TD7 electronic drum set for over 6 yrs and the plastic fittings are junk. I realize this is a new reincarnation of the same composite clamp that Roland has included in their lower line drum kits for many years but it is STILL plastic.I've seen several Roland sets with the plastic clamps such as these and every set has at least one broken or cracked clamp. Roland produces very good electronics but hardware is NOT their forte and it shows in many of their drum products. The clamp will retain tension and hold your pads fine at first but as time wears on (and your clamps do too), you will notice the clamps will stretch and lose their ability to hold tension on the mounts and tubes. So you will have to tighten it more and more until finally, the clamp breaks. Don't waste your money, buy the steel clamps from other manufacturers. They cost a little more but will way outlast these plastic ones.Spoken from experience.
The Roland V-drum mount clamp is versatile in that it allows excellent flexibility on setting almost any angle and height. It has a quality issue though, in that the parts that are tightened to clamp it to the rack are plastic with a metal bolt. I've only moved my V-Drums once, but in doing so, one of the clamps broke before it was tight enough to keep the drum in place.
