Expanding and customizing the gear that surrounds your throne is one of the best parts of drumming. There are so many drums and percussion instruments to choose from that there's essentially no limit to what you can do. Naturally, that applies to one of the core elements of a drum set: the tom-tom. Swapping or adding toms to your kit is a routine part of personalizing it, and that means picking out some tom drum mounts that will get them just where you want them.
The actual process of mounting toms is simple enough, but the really personal decisions come into play when you start thinking about positioning. A good mount will help you here. For example, the Gretsch Double Tom Holder has independently-adjustable arms, so once you have the toms securely attached to the bass drum, you can fine-tune the position of each one to get the perfect playing arrangement. If you're mounting a single tom, you can make it easier to get into ideal position with a highly flexible mount like Gibraltar's L-Rod Ultra-Adjust Tom Arm. This is a great mount because it gives you a ton of angle options, allowing the drum to go into any position you like.
