I got my Club Date tom holder to fold down simply be taking a cymbal wing nut and cutting the shank shorter with a hacksaw. It worked perfect.
I kept the original Ludwig wing nut so that I can reinstall it if I ever sell the kit.
I also cut a slot in the tom holder to accept the tooth of a memory lock. You can see the wing nut on the left and the memory lock on the rail in the pic.
I played my Club Date at band practice tonight. I hadn't played it with this band before. I have been playing my 6 piece ddrum kit with them.
It was an awesome session! They all loved the Ludinator. :)
