  • Easy(cheap) way to mount ConcertCast Pads to Rack

    In the process of putting together a second e-kit, and I need some advice on an economical way to mount three Pintech ConcertCast pads to a Gibraltar Rack...

    the only thing I've come up with so far is the conventional method of mounting to the mult-clamps....

    I thought of just buying three L-Rods (9.5mm?) popping them through the holes in the e-drum mount, and clamping them in to the multiclamps....

    this seems to limit the positioning of the pads however, especially the snare to a side rail...Gibraltar does make a L-Rod/ball ratchet/post combo for this specific purpose, but they're about $30 a piece...a little more than I wanted to spend..

    any other suggestions??

    I use the LMA-C and the LR-78 combo from Pintech.

    About $21 each (plus shipping).

                Well, that's all well and good, but I wish you people would have given me this information BEFORE I ordered this last week....

                Bottom line, I'm sitting here waiting for the merchandise I ordered, and waiting and waiting...a phone call confirmed my fear...NOBODY knew anything about my order....was never entered, now you're out of stock...blah. blah, blah, blah, blah, blah

                Isn't that a *****....and I gave you guys a nice plug in one of my above posts....

                Thanks for wasting my time.....

                  Wouldn't have a Gibraltar clamp and the top half of an old roto-tom stand laying around would you? Just a thought! :}

                    I ended up going with L-Rods...cheap and functional....you don't quite have the range of motion though..
