  • Hole size to mount TD-11 pads on DW tom mounts?

    I had a TD-30 and mounted its pads to DW tom stands with no changes. The TD-11 pads have slightly smaller holes. Just wondering if anyone else
    has drilled them up in size and knows how big of a bit to use.

    The usual DW Ball arms are 12.7MM. But they also make 10.5MM. Instead of drilling your Roland pads you may want to simply change the ball arms to 10.5MM (assuming your tom stands have ball arms): http://www.musiciansfriend.com/acces...lbm-l-rod-ball

        BTW, Guitar Center has them slightly cheaper.
