A while back ago I got a used mitchell hi-hat, seller claimed it was from Matthews. So when It arrived, assuming all mitchell bases were the same, I just stored it incase anyone needed one on set. About a month later it gets called in, so I grab the 150mm bowl adapter and to my surprise it didn't fit! Luckily it was not actually needed that day, but this is a bummer.
Can anyone explain this to me? I thought the mitchell base was a standard size:

I know the adapter is the correct size because its worked on multiple other mitchell bases.
Anyone know who manufactures these?
