Arrow Re: Floor tom cradle

I had one like the one in your picture. Tried to fit a modern, regular (cylindrical) floor tom with metal rims in there and it was not a good fit, at all for me. Not stable.
I think those cradles were made for tacked bottom heads or the rounded bottom Chinese toms
There is another style that is better suited for a modern floor tom.
That is, unless you have a tacked head tom or a giant Chinese FT to put in there.
Both types are rare.
See pic of cradle for metal rims.
Good Luck
