awhile back i picked up the gretsch L arm model VBDCH103
i have a 20 inch cymbal mounted on it and its functioning well.
visually its somewhat unbalanced and im considering my options to make it more uniform.
the l arm is have is 10.3 mm, and its mounted into an original diamond plate 4820 bracket.
the newer l arm has 3 heavy duty wing nuts and screw handles , and in comparison the original diamond plate has a much smaller screw .
i would like to either find a more heavy duty screw for the diamond plate that would more blend in the the l arm.
or if that isnt an option, i would consider replacing the original diamond plate with newer model only if it has the same whole pattern as the original.
a couple of questions before i search. what screw size is in original diamond plates ,was it 6mm ?
and would anyone know what cuurent gretsch brackets have the same hole pattern as an original diamond plate?
