That's weird. Ok, just trying to help. Don't know what to tell ya. Every time I see this thread pop up I go down and hit my SQ1 12 a couple times to see if I'm imagining that it sounds OK, but it actually does. Go figure. You shouldn't have to buy a different mount though. That sucks. I would at least have them send me another replacement sustainer mount.Man I tried all this. I even used my mapex Tom holder and also mounted it upside down. As soon as the drum hangs by the sound sustainer it dies.
It doesn’t affect my 8” Tom on the same 4000 series hardware.
I think it’s faulty rubber
