"I just received your DynaMount floor tom system, and must say that the results were very impressive.
I have a Pearl Masterworks kit with Optimounts that works just fine. I was just tiring of mounting the bigger toms off of cymbal stands, so I decided to look for alternatives. My first choice, based on price, was†a floor tom mounting system that mounts between the bottom tension rods and lugs ( like an up-side down RIMS™ ). This system did not work because the sound was terrible. All the drums resonance was gone. I went back to the Optimounts. I tried snare drum stands, even the Pearl stand with suspension arms. The drum still didn't sound good. I finally decided to try your DynaMount system.
First off, I was a little intimidated by the installation process, but to my surprise it was quite easy. It took time because I was being very careful, which is a good thing and I would highly suggest. Once assembled and placing the drum on the DynaMount, the sound was incredible. The resonance seemed equal to the Optimount, but the difference was that the drums sounded bigger and deeper. Timing was good because I did a recording session at a high end recording studio and got to hear my drums with the Dynamount... Wow! The moral of the story in regards to the Dynamount and other systems is, " you get what you pay for". Thank you for an excellent product."
"A quick note to thank you for the superior product and service. The Dynamount™ system arrived and I installed it without difficulty. The ultra-high quality of the materials and workmanship is a refreshing change from the ubiquitous run-of-the-mill imported stuff. Please keep your insistence upon producing American-made quality percussion accessories. All the best."
Richard Shiarella"I did get the Dynamount together for my 13x16, and good lord what an amazing tone. I've used your mounts since the 80's, but never on floor toms. What knocked me out was how DEEP of a pitch the tom could sustain. Unreal! This product far exceeds what I had expected. The big surprise was the side-by-side comparison between my Pearl Optimount 12" rack, and the Dynamount floor. The rack tom sounds like a Pringles can...no, a duct taped Pringles can. Additionally, while mixing our upcoming live c.d., the engineer just couldn't get signal out of my Gretsch floor tom, but the RIMS mounted rack was huge. So within a week's time, your products have duked it out with rival systems on two of my drum kits. I had always assumed that the Optimount system was just as good. Too bad it took me so long to see the light."
"Just a quick note to let you know that I just finished mounting my new 14", 16" and 18" RIMS Dynamounts (that arrived this morning after very swift shipping) to some Sonor Designer "rack" toms that have only ever hung from a stand before today. They now sit on the floor with DWbrackets and legs (no drilling necessary!), and without even going to any special effort to fine tune the heads, these drums sound and feel better than ever - I've not heard such fullness of tonal projection emanate from them before this - and I'm even using old heads!
Thanks so much for doing business with me, and I look forward to dealing with you again in the future. I found your service and communication to be excellent - not to mention the product! Thanks again!"
"I've now purchased a DynaMount for my 15"x13" Yamaha MCA Nouveau rack tom (I was tired of having a mounting stand!). I must say (being a true believer in the philosophy of the RIMS) that your system has given my tom "sound so that the jeans are blowing in the wind". Yamaha do indeed make fantastic drums, but their mounting (YESS) doesn't work. I think it's sad that I have to buy a suspension system elsewhere to get the most out of their drums. Maybe Yamaha should try your "test", and tune a tom off of the mount, and then put it back on "blurhh". Well, I just wanted to let you know of a satisfied customer from Denmark.
Thanks, for the great product."
"I never heard my 16" floor tom sound better, and the 14" sounds huge.
Keep up the great workmanship on a great evolution for making drums sound their absolute best! Still need to see where you manufacture these!
"Thanks very much for sending the 18? floor tom DynaMount- its absolutely brilliant ! and I?m getting to know how to fine tune the mounting system...my floor tom now sounds really good!! Thanks again and if you ever need an endorser I?ll be the first volunteer........."
All the best,
