On my kit I have a Tom that is on a Tom mount, every time I hit the bass drum (which is a lot) it shakes, a lot, it throws me off and is just annoying, any way to stop it? The kit I have is an Ashton kit btw if that helps
Thanks, I’ll have a look at pearl mountsA lot of people hate on pearl tom mounts and arms used to mount drums....but they are bomb-proof imo when it comes to holding your drums rock solid and unshakable. I've noticed tama and dw toms tend to shake a lot. I too, dislike my toms dancing while I play. This has always been why I favor Pearl tom mounting systems. If you just use one tom, you could put it in a snare basket and it will not dance around on you either.
OK ..... so your picture shows two toms .... but your complaint is worded "singular tom" is shaking. So is that correct? If only one tom is moving ..... then it's probably a loose, possibly worn tom arm. You shouldn't be able to wiggle those tom arms, if they're properly secure. You can just check that by hand. If both are moving, again, check to see if it's your bass drum that's rocking. Any motion in the bass drum will be amplified by the tom arms.On my kit I have a Tom that is on a Tom mount, every time I hit the bass drum (which is a lot) it shakes, a lot ....
