    I feel even better now. I defiled these tubs long ago by putting a tom mount on the virgin 18 bass, amongst other things. The purists will not be pleased but I think I will be. Thanks for the extra shot!

    If you already have mounting holes, use the BR2 - more available flex, adjustable, presumably better isolation. The BR3 is nice if no-drill is an absolute constraint, but not the optimal solution for tom mounting (much stiffer). In fact, based on my interactions with INDe/Josh, the recommendation is the BR2 even for new builds.

    Thanks for the great reviews and comments! As others have said, the BR2 is the best solution for mounting toms- the BR3's are a good option if you are not willing/able to drill (they don't have the spring adjustment, which is a nice feature for dialing in toms). The sweet spot for the BR3 is accessory mounting, adding legs to floor toms, or temporary/non-invasive installation on tom mounts. For those looking to drill, here is a .pdf on how to do it safely and easily!

    Yes. I actually had a full set of Gauger RIMMs ... great look ... similar and same issues. I gave them away with one of my kits.
    Beautiful construction. Excellent engineering behind them. Just didn’t hit those check boxes for me.

    The deed is done. I think the INDe mounts complement the retro-futuristic Legend lugs very nicely and they weigh half as much as the original overkill mounts. It’s time to set em up and tweak. :) 25145E94-1EBC-4F84-BF69-6A3B1A8FAA67.jpeg 19E616B3-2DC6-472F-9C63-1714CF6A1200.jpeg

    Hey Josh. I have hit a small road block. Once the memory clamp is secured to my l arms and ft legs, the threads protrude enough to impede them from sliding into the mount easily. Do you offer a shorter screw for the memory clamp?

    I've always liked those Legend drums! Just curious... Why did you ditch the suspension mounts that came on them?

    Because they weren’t actually suspension mounts. It’s a heavy plate that formed a bridge between 2 lugs with no give at all. So it’s just as stiff as a regular mount.

    Those INDe mounts look very natural on the Camco's! Wow. Seriously good.

    When you use the suspension mount (only Gauger makes real R.I.M.S.) on the bottom, you defeat the purpose of that mount. The weight of the drum is now resting on itself; the drum is no longer suspended and will not resonate like a drum that is suspended.

    Oh man Squid I would love to check those drums out. I recently sold a legend snare to a fellow forumite but I've never seen or heard an entire Legend set in person.

    Will post pics when complete. Josh is sending me some shorter screws to work with the small diameter hardware I have.

    Would've stuck that memriloc in the vice and ground the screw flush w ma dee walt belt sander. Not to worry I would cover the end with blue tape so I didn't butcher the chrome.
    That's how we Woodshop Cowboys do it yeehaw!!

    Great job! Personally, I would’ve used the BR3 (which works great BTW) just because I wouldn’t trust myself with the drilling of a NC. And believe me, I’m the first to pull out the drill. Hell, I drilled my JM virgin 24” bass drum yesterday and installed a Gretsch bass drum mount.

    Well done!
