ThanksThanks. Rack toms are fine being hung from the stands. Atlas tom mounts seem pretty stout and the tom arms are very beefy what with the 12mm L-arms. Key is having sturdy cymbal stands. I use Gibraltar 6709's. Excellent value as they are sturdy, double braced, convertible to booms, and have really cool memory locks with wing nuts that don't need a drum key except for one adjustment up by the tilter.
I purchased the FAB config (22-13-16) from Chicago Drum Exchange. CALL Kyle Hammond for pricing and tell him I (Todd fr Pittsburgh) sent you. He WILL work with you if you're a serious buyer. They are a BIG Ludwig dealer! I bought the 12x8 add on from Drum Center Portsmouth. I had to buy the Atlas mount separate and install it myself. It's EZ PZ to do. I got the Atlas tom arm/clamps from Sweetwater's Reverb store which is called GearNuts.
