Re: New Ludwig blue sparkle bop kit!
That is a beautiful set, congrats. Personally I would play the kit for a while before drilling into that virgin. Pick-up a RIMS for now or use a snare stand. Then, if you don't like it, drill away. I'm with Baz, the DW mount is a wonderful piece of hardware.
Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.
