Hi folks, your input on this small issue would be much appreciated. So I have an old 9000 pre yess that I absolutely love a great reliable work horse kit for gigging. When mounting smaller toms 10 and 12 the resonance can choke at certain point along the hex arm it mounts on too. Out near the end of the hex bar has full resonance. My question is if I cut down the hex bar for the smaller toms which seems very long for them about 6 inches so when I slide them onto it is it that the bars being right inside the drum that chokes it. I was thinking of cutting two of them from 6 to mabye 3 and a half as it seems pointless having them at the end of these long bars. I see the newer arms for the yess are shorter. As i said when placed near the end of the bar it sings and is sturdy and I still prefer it to over complicated bulky bouncy rims systems so not going that route. But cutting the bars or buying the shorter ones would be better for positioning would it also help for the resonance as not having a big bar in a small drum I'm sure would help. Not an issue for the floor toms. Kit is 8 10 12 14 15 20. I use 10 12 15. So is it worth the hassle a friend has metal work shop and i can do it there properly?
