    Default Floor toms

    Anyone here own a crystal beat and put optimounts on the floor toms? I'd like to know if I could actually put some optimounts prior to actually buying a set. The one I could think about is the shell cracking, but I guess that could happen with the leg mounts as well. I saw one on eBay with those kind of cracks. Any ideas anyone?

    I've done it, and I'm pretty sure at least one other PDFer has. I left it set up for about a month (atleast) but I've only done one gig with them. I have not had any problems. I had to go with the Optimounts because the floor tom legs were about an inch or so too short.

    I see... I want a crystal beat but I would like hanging toms all the time to prevent them from moving. Also I just like the look of hanging toms. :P but I've been thinking about a crystal beat or a masterworks but I don't know what I want lol...

    I have my 16" CB floor tom mounted on a Gauger RIMS mount with a Tama Starclassic bracket (not a fan of Pearl's mounting system), and it works fine. There's a little bounce to it, but I don't get why so many people have a problem with that.

    It's too bad they don't just offer hanging floors in say a 14x11 and a 16x13
