Yes I added them. The kit came with the rail mount and I decided to go full vintage by adding cymbal mounts. I really like those mounts. The modern versions are much better than the ones off the past. They don't slip. I have memory locks on them too.
I think that one plays differently on a kit with bass drum mounted toms and cymbals. It's a Zen thing. The cymbal holders flex slightly and the ride cymbal sound different because of it. The mounted ride also balances the weight of the tom.
