A guy I work with is just getting back into drumming after many years and is considering a new Gretsch Renown kit that a number of places are blowing out online. He wants to use a snare stand for his rack tom rather than mount it on a cymbal or tom stand. He asked me about the mounting system on the Gretsch Renown toms (the bracket that mounts above and below the lug) and whether it can be removed. I've looked at numerous photos online and can't figure out how the bracket attaches and if its easily removable? Has anyone tried removing the bracket from a Renown tom?
