Great thread. And thanks shiek for the pics. I had always put mine on the batter side too but with the arch closer to the hoop. I like sitting a bit closer to the bass drum so I just changed it like yours. Much better!shiek_yerbouti said:Here’s mine on a 22” bass drum with 13” tom. I tried the side placement when I first got it and did not like it. I could not get the tom where I wanted it and the weight was off balance as already mentioned. Quickly switched to the top position and all has been great since.
I love the simplicity of this set up. It’s more sturdy (IMO) than it was placing the tom on a snare stand. Positioning the tom during setup is very quick. as is the tear down. Weighs about the same as the snare stand.
It's a bit bulky but probably the best option available if you want to fly a tom off a bass drum you don't want to drill.Seriously thinking about adding it to my virgin 22
getting tired and bored with the snare stand.
This is beginning to sound like a very good option
