      Comments about Mapex AC909 Multi-Purpose Clamp:

      I bought this to use for my 16" floor tom to bass drum conversion. Yeah, I know, it's not made for this, but I made it work anyway. I figured I could probably use it for this, because the Questlove drum kit has a 16" bass with a similar style clamp.

      It's really solid & adjustable, and the bass pedal holds strong to it. It, however, doesn't really grab a standard floor tom hoop, so I just have my hoop resting on top of the clamp right now (my pedal has velcro on back, so it's not moving at all).

      I'm going to cut a little metal or aluminum bracket to bolt to my hoop so this can clamp to it. If that doesn't quite work out, then I'm going to buy a 16" wood bass drum hoop and that'll work just fine. I'm challenging myself to see how little money I can spend to make it work though.

      I realize it's made to give 18-20" bass drums a lift, but it would be cool if they made a version about 2" taller or so with a metal hoop style clamp (like those cowbell/percussion/mic accessory clamps for mounting to toms that you can get) on top for the floor tom conversion. With it maxed out, I have to lower my bass pedal beater to smack dead center on the 16" head.

            Great drum riser1- Has forward and backward adjustment to set up where the pedal hits. Clamps nicely onto hoop with minimal damage too.

            Good stand for the money

            By Michael Cosby

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about Mapex AC909 Multi-Purpose Clamp:

            I bought this stand to convert a 16" floor tom into a bass drum, despite the fact that this is not the purpose for which the stand is advertised (the product specs only say it's for use with an 18" bass). However, I already had a pair of removable bass drum spurs that I used to use with a vintage bass, so I wanted a cheap riser to use with the removable spurs to convert my 16x16" floor tom into a small bass for use in small venues where volume isn't as much of an issue. Though the Mapex riser isn't a perfect fit for the 16" floor tom, it does work quite well for the purpose as long as it's used with a rug or floor surface that prevents slipping because the riser doesn't lock onto the 16" rim, which is too small for the riser, which is intended for an 18" drum. Overall the riser was exactly what I needed for a cheap floor tom to bass drum conversion.
