I just installed a cymbal holder on my Club Date yesterday. This is the third time I do it although I no longer own one of the kits. Here are some tips

Find the spot you want to mount it. I like mine down low a little above 9 o'clock but this will depend on the model and length of the arm. Mine is the Gibraltar.

Tape the rubber gasket that came with the bracket to the spot with some masking tape but don't cover the holes of course.

Tap the holes in the center with a pointed object and hammer so your drill bit doesn't skate.

Start with a smaller bit than the final hole size and drill through the holes in the gasket. The Gibraltar round bracket needs 8mm or 5/16" holes. Finish off the holes with that size bit. Go slow and check that the inside isn't splintering.

If your work is good the bracket should fit. Clean up the area and the inside of the drum and install the bracket. Install and adjust cymbal arm and enjoy!

Here's mine on the Ludwig. As a final touch I put on a Ludwig wing nut.

Another route you could take that I forgot about (duh) is to buy an Atlas mount. No drilling required.

Ludwig has a few non- drill Atlas accessories that will allow you to mount a cymbal on your bass drum.
