Re: Sta-Tight legs holder on 14" floor tom


hmmmm... drill or not drill...

I'll go for the collars for now. And one day maybe the knobbies.
So I just have to drill 2 side holes to place a knobby? That fits?

Don't recommend drilling - especially on a 14. Down goes the value. Also, if the two hole spacing doesn't fit the "new" mount, then you will have enlarged holes and have further destroyed value of the drum.

If you really want the other mounts, sell / trade this one and get another.

I will not comment on the spacing.

Drilling is not needed, dont do it.

Keep the sta tights.

Re: Sta-Tight legs holder on 14" floor tom


Statite brackets were popular with some drummers because they did not require a key to set up the floor tom at a gig.

I just played a gig last night with a kit having Swivo legs on the floor tom, and I could see where it could get a little tiring dealing with them after a while, for some drummers at least.

Not much of a price difference, just a personal preference for some guys back then.

Please don't modify that floor tom: the hole spacing that's already there is not the same as the Swivo brackets.

Re: Sta-Tight legs holder on 14" floor tom


So I tried fitting a floor tom knobby, and it fits in the vertical holes! So if ever I wished to install them, I'd just have to drill the left&right ones. No wasted unused holes, that means...

still don't drill. put on the other leg holders with 2 bolts. don't add holes to the shell or it will be devalued forever.

Re: Sta-Tight legs holder on 14" floor tom


Do NOT drill that 14 ich fl tom! DO use the knobbies with only 2 bolts (if you can). I had a 16 inch Rogers fl tom originally drilled for the sta-tites but, the knobbies would have to go in the same place as a lug being wider so,I had to re-drill for knobbies.It was hardly a museum piece and,in need of a re-wrap so,I didn't have a problem with it. Don't know if you'll run into this problem with the spacing on the 14 incher.
I have a 14 inch Radio King Fl tom someone installed the sta-tites on and they will strip as mentioned earlier.I used a cowbell U bracket under the sta-tite brackets as memory locks and,it works fine. I was able to use a generic wing nut to replace the stripped Rogers wing nut.

Re: Sta-Tight legs holder on 14" floor tom


Just had a test done on 14" Cleveland floor tom originally equipped with sta-tite leg mounts. The vertical holes on a Cleveland era knobby leg mount line up perfectly with the sta-tite holes. This begs the question: IF two horizontal holes are drilled in order to mount the knobby legs, and correct legs are used, how is the value of the drum decreased?
