Re: 1984 - Photoshoot (2)


JohnC, I was wondering about any research on the bass drum/tom support bar relationship. I have heard that the bass drum shouldn't have the toms or anything bolted to it,as it hampers sound. Every kit I have,the toms mount on the b.d. Just curious of your thoughts.
Thanks for your time. I really appreciate all these photos of a time now gone.

Bass Drum Mounted Toms


I did participate in any research or testing regarding the effects of mounting equipment such as toms on a bass drum. From an engineer's perspective, I like the idea of transmitting the load directly to the floor like Rogers did with the XP8 bass drum mount. If there was ever a way to minimize shell distortion, that would be it.

Personally, my current preference is not to mount anything to my bass drums. Primarily based on superstition and hearsay.

And rattling maybe? My cymbal mount through the bass drum in a Londoner 7 arrangement just loves to rattle around as I pound the bass pedal...

Re: 1984 - Photoshoot (2)


One gig I did last year I went ahead and mounted a splash with a Girbralter Cymbal arm clamp on one of my memri-loc arms, so I could have a cymbal right in the center. However, I ended up with a lot of vibration on the tom and bass drum when I hit the cymbal, I don't think that is normal. Is there any recomendations in order to this without vibration?

This really works. I use this method on all my cymbals. I actually use clear surgical tubing. I have a large roll in my "tool box" and cut about twenty of them to size. I check them every time I set up because they do wear out but they last quite a while.
This is a photo of my Swivo jazz setup and I also use this with my XP8 setup.
I will take a picture of the tubing I use when I get to it.

Amazing, Jack. I'm actually looking to replace my cut pieces of surgical tubing, or whatever it is! I have a sample with me, and was just about to head out the door to a hobby shop to see if I could find anything close.

Note, I also put a fender washer over the top felt. This allows you to reef down on the wing nut tightly, so it won't unwind off the threads during a show.

I get mine at a surgical supply store. You can get almost any diameter and wall thickness you need.
