Hi folks, so which do you prefer and why? For me I like toms mounted on the bass drum it's faster to set up, helps stop any bass drum movement and not as bouncy on a hollow stage and makes the kit feel more like a unit. I have had lot's of kits and with virgin bass drum set up it's more hassle trying to get cymbals and tom on one stand in the right spot on small stages or else bring a ton of hardware. On the resonance side it does take a bit away for me it just means less dampening or none. What's the point in a virgin bass drum with a big pillow!
