The Yamaha CL945B ball and socket tom arm is just what you need if you're looking to expand your drum kit. It is a short rod and short pipe and fits most mounting brackets.
Eliminate the issue of hardware that gets in the way of your tone with Yamaha's CL945BW YESS tom ball clamp. Since the YESS (which stands for Yamaha Enhanced Sustain System) drum mounting hardware uses a rod clamp system that doesn't require putting a hole in your drum shell, it doesn't influence your tonal output. That means if you're using the YESS clamps on your toms, adding the flexibility of the CL945B doesn't mean compromising your sound. Get the hardware designed with your tone in mind with Yamaha's YESS mounting system and the CL945B tom ball clamp.
