Default Re: Anyone used a Gibraltar Bass Drum Cymbal Mount?

Use the gasket as a guide, absolutely. I recently installed two bass drum cymbal mounts. Always start with a small pilot hole (2 mil or so) and work up to the size you need. Never drill the full size straight away - that's a recipe for disaster. If you're not sure about the size you need, just drill progressively and try to fit the part each time.
