just got a order from Ludwig they mistakenly gave me a modular mount on my 13" rack tom when i ordered a vibraband mount with no mount on the drum. i have heard time and again not to drill holes in drums but while i think the vibrabands are great, personally I would prefer the mount on the drum. an L-arm or I believe it's called elite mount is less obtrusive with no hole in the shell. I am an 80's guy and remember the modular mounts fondly although i frequently hear people say they are undesirable. I am now aware that the new Ludwig order form has discontinued the double braced double modular tom stand and I'd have to get a Pearl, I'm not sure they are even exactly the same size. oui. sooooo, I am looking for advice on what do do. Ludwig will remake the drum for me with or w/o a mount and i have to pull the trigger tomorrow morning. or i can keep the Tom. note i will be ordering a 12" and will be looking at 12" & 13" toms on a double stand, modular or elite. I would really appreciate any advice or opinions.
