The ole tom in the snare stand discussion.

Funny how no one worries about a stand choking their snare, but when it's a tom, suddenly it's an issue.
Well, we don't have the same tonal expectations of a snare drum that we have of a tom. The resonant head is much less involved when you put a drum in a basket. This doesn't matter so much on snares since most of the sustain comes from the batter head anyway.
