    No problem. Just remember to order each pan 1 inch smaller than the shell you will use it with.

    I bought a "9 inch" pan today at Walmart but it is about 1/2 inch to small. Falls into the 10 inch tom shell. Would like to complete one drum before ordering all the parts for the kit.

    Plan to use 10, 12, 14 and 16 inch toms with Hart Dynamics Pro snare. Plan to use the Hart Mesh heads.

    Thanks for the help.

    Why not just order the Fat Daddio's Pans? They work just fine and don't cost all that much.

    I been using the cone triggers from quartztriggers guy on ebay to replace failed ones in my PD125 pads and also an acoustic kick drum so I got that part down pretty good.

    Yea, I am with him. I am currently using a small cutting wheel and a dremel. It's working a little better but I am always up for other suggestions. I will also look into using a flat screw..

    Yeah...the first one I built I had to do the same thing...then I started replacing the top lug screw with a bolt that had a "shallower" head. Think "pan head" instead of "hex". After that.....they dropped right in without having to notch the pans at all.

    Also, since I'm going single zone, I assume I don't need the bottom platform? Presumably it's just there to provide shelter to the rim trigger, yes?

    Thanks for the help!
    I would say correct...for everything here.

However, in the scenario pictured below, do I need to worry about the bottom nut (the one supporting the actual cone platform) slowly making it's way back down the bolt over time or will the top nut pressing down on the platform and bottom nut keep the bottom nut from slipping? Make sense? It seems like the platform sitting on two nuts would allow the nuts the jiggle their way down the bolts over time.

    Again, sorry if this doesn't make sense.

    Lock washers and a drop of Blue LocTite will keep them from going anywhere. However I would use shorter bolts just to make sure the they never come in contact with the mesh head......you just never know.

    A lock washer on top will help clamp it all down too.
