Default Removing the tom mount off my Starclassic BD

Has anyone been able to remove the tom mount clamp off a Starclassic bass drum? I've unscrewed mine, just can't get it off, it's as if it's been glued on.

It shouldn’t be glued on. If the mount/drum hasn’t been modified, then it’s probably just adhered over time.

Many guys have removed the mount and covered it with a plate.

I’m not sure when those came about for Tama, but I remember on the Pearl forum many players requesting them to be made by Pearl.

There were many young Export model owners who wanted a virgin kick drum that only seemed to come with the higher priced models. Pearl openly admitted that it was these kids from the forum that inspired them to make them.

Yeah... I don't understand why any drum maker doesn't make virgin bass drums. Mine's stuck firmly on, I've unscrewed it months ago, played it, shook it, tried a butter knife, it doesn't want to come off.

If there is nothing fixing the mount to the drum, I would try installing the tom tree in the mount and lightly applying pressure to crack lose whatever is holding the mount on the drum.

Warning:. You may have the lacquer crack under the mount from whatever is still holding the mount on the drum.

You could try (at your own risk lol) running a VERY sharp Xacto type knife around the outline of the mount base. This will help to keep the lacquer from cracking as TommyD mentioned above.

If it were my drum and I wanted it off I would have no problem doing this. Just go slowwww as it is easy to slip with a blade. That is why the sharper the better.

You may want to try applying a little heat to the area to soften things up, which may prevent lacquer issues. I'm not so sure about using anything sharp around lacquer. Sounds like you are asking for a slip up and some scratches.

Yeah, try a hair dryer for a few minutes.
