I have a large black LP bell with a ridge running down the length of the bell (not a Ridge Rider). I think its the bell Gadd used before it was called the Gadd bell. I previously mounted it with a clamp on my bass drum tom mount post. Worked well! However, currently, I'm playing a virgin bass drum and I can't find a good position clamping the bell to a cymbal stand. I looked at a bass hoop mount, but, I don't want to damage they hoop in the short term or long term. Any suggestions appreciated.
