Default Re: Ludwig ATLAS Mounts

I'll never understand why people want their drums to have that much sustain. I get that it's all preference and such, but from my experience all sustain does is muddy up the sound or get lost in the mix. Anyone care to enlighten me?

Sustain is good for the economy. Creates an aftermarket of dampening devices that can be sold/taxed. Sustain the cour$e.

...for floor toms and kicks, the mounts stick out quite a bit more than whatever they replaced. Despite all the other cool applications - floor tom isolation, rack tom mount isolation, ride/cowbell/accessory isolation, kick spur isolation, mic mount isolation - the mount is bulky, and requires new bags/cases if being transported.

Mmmmm, maybe do what YAMAHA did, move it (the profile) to the side.
