Due to my inability to tune the 13” tom some years ago I replaced it with a 10x12” tom that was easier for me to tune. I couldn’t 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 that’s hard for me to do); I’m thinking.....now that technology is so advanced these days and I have the iDrumTech tuning system on my smart phone why couldn’t I use the 13” tom. The 12” 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 I’m totally satisfied with this system. It’s solid as a rock and sounds great.
