This! I leave one of these mounted on all my floor toms, as I mount either a cowbell or cymbal from these.I have a couple of the Dunnett Claws and they work great.
Unfortunately I don't have a picture of it mounted on a floor tom in the standard position. I took it off my floor tom and have relocated it on the triple-flange hoop of my Metro Jam 16" bass drum. Without this Tama clamp it would be impossible to mount my cowbell in the conventional spot without resorting to a larger/heavier multiclamp off the central tom post.Would you have a photo image of that Tama product in action, it looks like a pretty good option.
Gibraltar has got some pretty good solutions. If that fits the bill I would get one from a store with a good return policy and give it a try. Also at the price point of ~ 22-bucks, its hard to go wrong.
I curious as to what the Tama and Dunnet solutions look like in the real world... hopefully some pics will get posted.
Looks like the INDe solution is pretty solid too, but it does come in slightly more than the other, but it may well be worth it.
I've been using these for years, mostly the ones with cymbal mounts, but I have one for cowbells & another threaded for microphones. They are fast to clip on and work like a charm. One of mine is over 10 years old & still running after who knows how many gigs.I read about the LP claw and all I see are bad reviews. Apparently the new design is not very sturdy. I found this Gibraltar and it looks pretty good and has a pretty low cost. It has the ability to rotate where you attach the rod which makes it convenient for positioning. I've had good luck with Gibraltar products.
What do you think about it in comparison to your suggestions?

Cool! Good to hear. MF just shipped it out to me yesterday so I should be getting it in a few days. Looks good and for the price I don't think you can go wrong. And I like Gibraltar stuff. 95% of my hardware is Gibraltar.The Gibraltar is the one I'e been using for years
That looks good. I ordered the Gibraltar claw. We'll see how it works! Nice drums by the wayI use the Gibraltar SC-CMBRA cymbal attachment. I clamp it to the top of my floor tom leg and attach the cowbell to the cymbal shaft. Extremely sturdy, easily positioned, takes up no space.
You can see it in the second pic, just above the first floor tom. Of course, you can place it wherever you'd like. The arm allows almost unlimited positioning latitude.
