FOR ANY DRUMMERS WHO MOUNT THEIR TOM ON A SNARE STAND, to know why they should USE LITTLE BOOTY SHAKERS TO MAKE IT SOUND GREAT.
I SWEAR BY THEM, and use them on the stand for my snare as well. If you’ve ever mounted a tom on a snare stand you probably noticed the sustain, and tone of the drum disappear leaving you with only a harsh attack, and very little tone. Hold it up, and it sounds great. Put it on the stand, and it sounds awful. Put Little Booty Shakers on the stand, however, and BOOM: the sustain, and tone return.
