hey guys, I'm thinking of installing installing a single tom mount, with a triple clamp Yamaha tom arm holding two Yamaha ball style Gibraltar tom arms. It is being put on a virgin Ludwig bass drum. But I have some fears and questions. Is the bass drum factory mount-less for a reason? Do I have to worry about the shell being too thin to hold this mount and arms? What about the drilling? Any tips to avoid lots of chip-out? I'll be drilling from the outside in of course. It is a Signet bass drum with a veneer. Or should I leave the bass drum virgin? How does a mount really affect the sound? Is it a lot or negligible? I'm debating doing it or returning the mount and tom clamp and keeping it the way it is. Any advice?
