Tommy Wells once posted about a trick you can do with a snare stand, to help make the drum sound more resonant.Update! The Pearl snare stand works perfectly. I discovered that the basket doesn't have to clear 22" (the apex of my bass drum), it only has to clear the side curve of the drum. "DOH!" AND THE DRUM SINGS FOR DAYS EVEN WITH COATED EMPS! The Pearl snare stand basket has large, high, rubber feet, allowing me to tilt the drum as needed without squeezing it with the basket feet. As I suspected, hanging a tom (at least a large tom), off of an Atlas lug bracket seems to impair the resonance of the drum.
Anyway, thanks for all of the feedback. Greatly appreciated!
He would stitch rubber bands around the tom to help it "float" on the stand.
I don't recall the specifics, but maybe someone else here knows more about this.
...otherwise, congrats! =)
