Seems like the closet refit would be Gon Bop for the lug plates. Nice drum! That's a serious shell for 19 bucks, I'll tell you that!!

No dents at all in the tub ... :D

Gonbops hardware wil be my best option indeed.

A slightly wider shot showing the threaded rod as a whole would be very helpful in copying it and using it in the future. Please.

instead of behind them . Tryed it out this evening .
I have to adjust my stand properly yet but i'd really like it that way !!


(The conga's ar 27 years old beat up Supercussion .
The bongo is leopercussion .
Its my rehearselroom set . )

After a month i've put it back to the old configuration .It's not as practical as i thought, and i loose speed "cause the bongo's is further away from the conga's !!

Also i've traded the leopercussion bongo's for a Meinl Marathon ,as i realised after about a month of playing them that i don't like fiberglass bongo's.
