Looks like another brilliant INDe retrofit .......

But I'm curious about your choice of words ...... is there some sort of time limit on this product? I didn't get any hint of that from the video ......


Mike
just speculating there could be a lot of demand for this product? If I wanted one I would order one now.
I've occasionally seen some Indesign brackets listed as temporarily out of stock.
I have the ultra light tom mount, bass legs & brackets and a floor tom with BR2 brackets and aluminum legs, very happy with them.

Seems to me I've seen rods with spades on the end - couldn't one of these be clamped by the INDe muti-clamp? That will accommodate diameters from 9.5mm (3/8") all the way to 12.7mm (1/2").

Is the Inde multi-clamp the top section on the rail mount?

Purchased Immediately. Been waiting on this.
Not unhappy with the Ludwig Ratchet Rail.
I believe this is the best of all the newer designs.

Yes ...... it is the piece that has a fixed pair of clamps on one end and a "toothless" rotating clamp on the other. Very useful ...... I have bought several of these from Josh as standalone parts. I use them on various mounts that I've put together out of other manufacturer's bits and pieces.

Heard back from Craig at IndieDrum and he suggested using the existing L-arm blade with this new rail mount. Sounds like it might be a great solution for my vintage Yamaha D20 setup. I've got some measuring to do!

Installed and ready to go. Very nice work from [email protected] once again.

I did have to drill the original rail holes on the shell out for the new bolts. They were slightly larger than what I had. I added the original Ludwig ratchet rail so factory ones might be OK.

Well designed and it is infinitely adjustable. I've gone through 4 different base setups.
Putting the Gearless Tilter on the main post helps you get it lower and worked best for me.
Tinker toy for drums! Played with it for hours trying different things.

Awesome stuff. I am a little apprehensive at the lack of knurling, but a minor thought

The aluminum L-arms without knurling do require the use of the very slick and effective INDe "memory lock". It's actually the mem lock that holds the position radially around the rod diameter. The wing nut alone requires too much tightening to prevent rotation, but is perfectly effective, in conjunction with the memory clamp, to secure the drum.

Knurling on aluminum is just asking for premature wear out in any case ....

My $ 0.02 ......
