Default Hard Cases and DW Vintage Tom Mount

Anyone have problems getting a DW bass drum with the vintage tom mount into a hard case? I'm looking at an 18-inch kick drum with the tom mount and was curious if it would fit in an 18-inch SKB Roto case, or if I'd have to go up a size.

Default Re: Hard Cases and DW Vintage Tom Mount

The best thing to do would be to try it out. On my bass drums, I put one of the legs into the one of the "corners" of the SKB case, and the drum fits just fine. If I don't do this, the drum is snug. What sticks out more, the legs or the mount? If the legs do, you'll probably be alright. If the mount does, you might have to go oversized (20" case) and stuff a pillow in there...

I agree that trying it is a good idea. Since I don't have access to the drum or case, I thought someone may have some experience already.

Just replying to myself here: not a chance an 18-inch drum with that mount is gonna fit in an 18-inch case.
