Default D Railed

...Forgive me Death Metal Conga.

I added a rail mount to my white marine pearl dubs.



I had to modify the Gibralter as it was too tall. I used various DW cymbal and snare stand parts for the tom arm assembly. I also used the air vent hole as one of the rail mount holes, which meant I only had to drill one hole in the bass drum.



I ordered the DW rail mount, which means that I will have to drill another hole in the bass drum. The spacing hole to hole on the DW mount is shorter than the spacing on the Gibralter. At least I will get my air vent back.



Love those Premier die cast hoops.

Barry

Nice. Those hoops are pretty interesting, personally I like the look of big die-cast hoops but those give a subtler effect.

It looks cool, but compared to old rail mounts, newer ones look silly

Yeah, a buddy of mine just cut down a DW rail consolette because it was "too tall". He said it was a real b**** to do. Funny what we drummers do because 1 1/2" of pipe annoy's us.

I'm anal like that too. I think it looks decent, and its not too harsh on the eyes.

...As far as the vintage rail mounts go, I see a lot of them around, mostly with stripped nuts from overtightening . I like them on larger bass drums and will admit that they do look a lot cleaner than these new monstrosities. However, if I have to decide between functionality and looks, I will go for the former.

...I will have to cut the DW arm down too.

I checked out a kit at my fave drum shop that has the DW rail mount. It looks like it will be a bit of a b**** .

Really good job, looks professional to me. The finish on the kit is great as well.

HAHA! Well it looks good and you did as little boring as possible, using an existing air vent hole. It really does have a vintage look. Good job.

Any reason why you didn't use the STM mount on the drum? Either way, it still looks good as does that kit.

That's exactly the same problem I have - The Gibraltar railmount is to tall!

And your solution look GREAT!

Can you please tell me more detailed what parts you have used? That would be a big help.

And - is your solution stable and sturdy enough?

Thanks

I don't know if they'll respond since the thread is almost four years old.

...Hello Peter.

I got your PM. Now that I know what you were reffering to I will go down to my frankendrum lab and see if I can cobble the L arm mount for some pictures.

Ohh. Sorry,

I was off course reffering to your modern drummer post - and thanks for your reply.

Pictures of the parts would be awesome, and some kind of note about what kind of parts, or where they're from would be perfect.

Have a nice day.

Peter W.
