    Default Removing bass drum tom mount

    Hello!

    I need you guys' help.

    I haven't been using my toms mounted on my bass drum for a LONG time already.
    But I never got around to removing the bass drum's tom mount because it's kind of a hassle.
    I finally want to do it but it looks like I'll need some specific parts to put in there after I take it off.
    Here's a pic:


    So it looks like I'm looking for 4 new lugs, right? Since those 4 there look special made to accomodate those bars that go across the top of the bass drum.
    This is an older Saturn Pro kit, so I don't know how easy those are to find.

    P.S. I should mention I'm in the UK, so a solution around here would be best.
    Anyone shed some light?

    Thanks!

    Well, you don't need 4 new lugs, just 2 if you want to make sure you don't have tension rod splay issues. The Saturn/Orion lugs were made in 3 different sizes. One for bass drums, another for toms, and a 3rd for lugs where a suspension mount is installed under it. If I recall correctly, these 4 lugs consist of 2 bass drum lugs and 2 regular tom height lugs that have the bass drum mount under them. If you remove the mount, the tom height lugs will sit too low on the drum causing some splay issues and could actually cause binding, damage or just flat out won't work. The 2 bass drum lugs will still work, you just need to remove the rods that span the length of the drum. They come out with an allen key on the inside of the lug holding a set screw keeping the rod in place.

    Another option is to make some sort of spacer for the 2 lugs out of something simple like hard chip board or plastic. You can always mount these 4 lugs on the under side of the drum so they aren't seen and use the normal bass lugs on top.

    Ok so I found another topic here with the same question, and apparently the part number of the thing is 0702-D02A4.
    It's a pack of 4, so all fine and dandy, except I'm having trouble actually finding them online.
    Sent MAPEX a message on Facebook and emailed them via the contact form on the site.
    I hate having to wait for a response, so... any other ideas?

    These will work:

    They aren't the same lugs, but they are bass drum lugs and if you use them on the under side of the drum, no one will ever know.

    I will know!!!
    Lol. Thank you though!
    If I can't find the other ones, this will be a solution I guess.

    You dont need new lugs!

    Remove the 4 that support the holder and look closely in their threaded holes. In each one there is a very tiny allen set screw which holds the tube in place. Unscrew them, slide the tubes out and you have 4 almost normal lugs. You can move them on the bottom of the kick if the holes in them bother you.

    The holes are ok...
    But from looking at them, I think, like someone said earlier, the two that are actually on the mount are tom lugs, they're shorter.
    If I take the metal plate out, they'll be so short that they'll put the tuning rods at an angle and make it impossible for them to clamp the hoop.

    Also I just noticed that pic was way too small. Fixed!

    Well, you can always cut rubber gaskets by hand.

    So, in case anyone else reading this has the same problem, and is in Europe:
    They replied. I had to register for an account with KORG, who is the distributor of MAPEX parts in Europe.
    Annoying little step, but worth it, the site is well organized and easy to use.
    The weird part is they don't take credit cards (???? It's 2019 man, come ON).
    And, the part number I had before is wrong.
    0702-D02A4 won't work.
    The right one is LUG-0701N
    £2.50 each lug!
    Ordered 4 of them, will update when they get here.

    Cheers!

    Incredibly surprised at £2.50 per lug. I'd expect that to be at least double if not more. Hopefully they are the actual metal lugs and not just a gasket.
