    Tom above hats? and other unusual setups

    How do you put together your cymbal setup?

But when I tried to turn the handles that held the rods into the track they wouldn’t budge. With quite a bit of force I was able to get one to turn...

    Evolving cymbal set-ups (how about yours?)

    Need Help with a North Tom

    Think I’m gonna go with the INDe mount and replace the Ludwig mount- might just leave the plugged holes as I’m pretty new to this and not sure whether or not I can take on a whole repainting projects.
