I pulled my 12x13Ē rack tom back from retirement.

Due to my inability to tune the 13Ē tom some years ago I replaced it with a 10x12Ē tom that was easier for me to tune. I couldnít go to the local drum shop and have it tuned before every gig. LOL!! So I replaced it. Although I was disappointed because the Cherry finish did not match the rest of the set I used it for many years and was happy with the beautiful tone it created.

Last week I received the new ATLAS mounts and while changing to the new mounting system I happened to think (and thatís hard for me to do); Iím thinking.....now that technology is so advanced these days and I have the iDrumTech tuning system on my smart phone why couldnít I use the 13Ē tom. The 12Ē tom went into retirement phase.

I was a little apprehensive about using that size/heavy drum with the ATLAS mount but after setup at the first gig Iím totally satisfied with this system. Itís solid as a rock and sounds great. Big Smile

Glad to hear those new mounts are working out for you. I don't even own a 13" tom anymore. Used to play a 13 - 16 combination but switched to a 12 years ago. 13 is a good size.

The 12x13 is a heavy drum but the new mounts are hanging in there. Iím trying to tune it the same as I did the 10x12; not working like I thought. I need to spend some time and find that sweet spot; itís a deep drum and hard to tune. I think once I find the proper tuning the other toms have a wider range and should be tunable to match.

My old Tama Artstar tom was 12x13. I never had trouble tuning it, but I'm not that fussy about toms.
