To add someting to the list, simply click on a file of chosen category, edit it, then go to the bottom of the page and click on green field "Commit changes".

You can write it here, then I will add it there (and hefty will probably add it to the list in 1st post) ;)

Yup. No biggie to maintain both... I'm just pleased this list has lasted this long (5+ years) and been useful for some people!

Makes me wonder if a drum's weight would be useful. Recently, I picked up an entry-level, new drum made by one of the major drum manufacturers - and wow it was really light weight. Not a good kind of light weight - but a cheap-feeling light weight. I guess that's good for schlepping gear in and out of gig venues. But - it may indicate quality as well - cheap drum hardware and/or wood veneers = light weight??? Anyone have any insights on this?

The thin shell craze has been around so long, it's finally trickled down to the generic kits.

The Atlas Rail Mount with memory lock is 4 lbs. 4 oz.
The two Atlas mounts are------------------- 2 lbs. 2 oz.
This setup weighs a total of ---------------- 6 lbs. 6 oz.

The snare stand you were using was------------------- 4 lbs. 1 oz.
The two large Classic lugs the Atlas mounts replaced were 5 oz, total.
This setup weighed a total of --------------------------- 4 lbs. 6 oz.

So 6 lbs. 6 oz. replaced 4 lbs. 6 oz.
You increased the weight of your drums by 2 lbs.

...but tell me, did the change make life any easier for you?

Yes, life is easier. Set it, forget it. Have played about 6 gigs with it and will continue using it. Don't have to mess with positioning a snare stand, flying off a cymbal stand was not an option for me, been there, done that.

FWIW, I wound up repositioning the ATLAS mounts to the reso side, no more limitations with positioning.

Peterk256,

1 lb on the bass drum, 1 lb in the rolling gig bag vs. setup hassle and usability is a win for me. I'm already using pencil-thin Ludwig LT-126-CS straight cymbal stands and a medium-weight snare stand so I can afford 2 lbs. total for this rig.

But really:

So, for me it's carrying 3 oz more, not 2 lbs.

Throne Bases:
  • Rock & Sock Spindle Base - 8 lb, 8 oz
  • Gibraltar B9808 Double Braced Base - 8 lb, 13 oz
  • Gibraltar B9708 Single Braced Base - 6 lb, 14 oz
    Same style as B9808 except single braced, works great, saves 2 lbs! Can't find on Gibraltar's site but on Amazon, Reverb, eBay.

Original Rogers swan leg snare stand. 4 lbs 3.5 oz.

All 3 rubber feet for the legs are missing. Don't know how much weight the rubber feet would have added.
