Default Re: Update on Wac'd Drums

Gary, you know I'm a fan, but I have to be honest, I'm not liking the tom holder design. Although your lugs will behave differently to standard stuff, I never subscribe to it being a good idea to hang off lugs on one side of a drum. It promotes an uneven deflection of the hoop & associated lugs, & I believe that offers the potential of a sustain sink. I prefer mounts that allow the drum to sit evenly supported over greater than 180 degrees of the diameter, rather than loading up one side of the drum.

Like I said earlier, you can never please everyone, & I'm just an irrelevant design anal spec on the drumming landscape. It looks good, & probably works just fine on anything but thin shelled drums, so the vast majority of customers will be more than happy.
