i have a couple of drums not being used, and i have been giving some thought to putting together a small light weight travel friendly kit.... im considering 2 options......the first being the fl tom/bass drum conversion. the floor tom is 14 x 16 . since these drums will more then likely get little to no use at least at this time, i want to find a conversion setup that would work for the lowest cost......the second option, is if i want to include a rack tom. i have a 7 x 10 matching tom, with an existing tom bracket thats set up to connnect to an independent floor stand, i would prefer to drill the drum and install a mount into the new bass drum to support the tom. again im looking for entry level hardware. but my concern then becomes, to borrow a line from the moody blues, a question of balance. will the new elevated small bass drum support the offset weight of the attached tom. if not i then have to consider an independent stand, or just leaving a rack tom out of the mix , at least to start off. anybody been down this road, or have any suggestions ?
