    Default Pearl Floating Floor Tom Feet

    Does anyone own these Pearl R-40/3 Floor Tom Rubber http://www.guitarcenter.com/Pearl-R-...72-i1140385.gc

    I am curious how much sustain they add. Earlier this year i took some open cell foam and made little cushions to put the floor tom legs into and they worked pretty good; but i am looking for something a little more professional looking and perhaps even works better.

    Thanks,

    I have them.
    They are excellent.
    I didn't even mean to get them, I was ordering leg mounts, but I kept them when they came it!

    I was pretty amazed by what they did for my Export floor toms. YMMV, especially since you've already improved your sound some.

    Less, by simple definition, cannot be more. Seriously. Check the ****ing dictionary.

    thanks guys, you've been a great help. Some of the other threads on this just stated potential, or that Mapex makes a foot with a similar concept using springs

    Your mileage may vary.

    They're great!!!

    They don't free-up the amount of resonance of a suspension system or cradle, but they're close. One of the best cheap mods you can make to a floor tom IMHO.

    I was skeptical as to how much difference the rubber feet could make, but I got them when I ordered new legs for one of my floor toms and they did make a noticeable difference in resonance vs the old style solid feet.
