  • PD-120 (Snare) mounting brackets....

    Hi All,

    Has anyone taken off the mounting bracket of a PD-120 when you're using it as a snare? I want to switch from having my snare mounted on my rack to using a snare stand and I'd like to get that mounting bracket out of the way to improve the looks and balance of the drum.

    Just curious if anyone's done it. It doesn't look like it should negatively affect the pad in any way.

    That was one of the first things I did. The drum is more stable in the snare stand and it looks a whole lot better. There is no relation to triggering and the mounting bracket.

      Thanks for the input spaceman. I'm just getting into e-drums and triggering and your input helps. I didn't think that taking the mount off would affect triggering but I just wanted to be sure.

      Thanks again.

        I also took the bracket off. The gold washers are kind of cool-looking, so I put the original mounting screws back in just to fill the holes. Looks great, and have more room to re-position the snare.

            If any of you that have removed these have the black mounting brackets, let me know if you'd be willing to part with them.

              I took mine off and bolted a midget onto it instead. Always ready to go!

                I hold the patent on midgets.
