I texted Josh last night to see how prep for the Chicago show was going. Lo and behold he sent me this picture and said he's got a lot of good stuff coming down the pike. Still in the prototype stage but full production will be coming soon. Looks like an improvement over the Ludwig Atlas lug mount. Mounting spacing is adjustable for different lug spacing too. Can't wait to get my hands on one!

Is this just for mounting a cymbal arm or cowbell holder, or are there plans to develop a tom mounting system like Ludwig's arch rail consolette?

Oh I like that a lot. I'm happy with my Atlas mounts but this looks lighter and possibly a better fit in cases with the key rods. I'll get at least one or two for cymbal arm on my bass drum. I've got the atlas arch and I tried adding a third AM for a cymbal arm and it makes it a very tight fit in the hard case.

The fact that it's adjustable makes it super intriguing to me.

What about a 1-hole option for single point lugs?

If not, drilling 1 hole is better than drilling 2.

That must be the no-drill option he mentioned in the other thread about his iso mount. Cool idea but personally I don't like legs or brackets lined up with lugs (not a fan of the Atlas system for the same reason). But for those that don't mind this is a great idea and I'm sure will be another winner.

Will these make it so my 14 Keystone Ludwig f/t will actually fit in a 14 case?

Thanks for the post Pressroll, and thanks for your interest everyone else! We should have these available in about 2-3 months, and I will certainly announce it here! To address some of the questions:

Yes, stay tuned!

We really need 2 holes for stability. It is really tough to prevent rotation with a single mounting point!

If you want to go drill-free, you need to follow the holes!

Yes. These are quite low-profile. This bracket is over 1" shorter than the Atlas mounts.

Thank God! I always thought the atlas mounts were too bulky. I'm all about this new design.

Hmmm.....Will that hold a Rogers hex floor tom leg?
I might finally do a 14" FT conversion!

Oh shoot, that's fantastic.

I love it.

I can see a lot of the uses for this part in my own stable of drums, from some 40s drums that need proper tom and floor tom brackets to a particular bass drum that needs new spurs and a cymbal mount.

I'm waiting for the 3 pack. Well done, Josh!

I love what Inde is doing. Simple innovative hardware. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Josh will create an adjustable snare butt to replace the P32.
