OVERVIEW

Changes any 16" floor tom into a jungle-style bass drum.

The Pearl JG16 Jungle Jig changes any 16" floor tom into a jungle-style bass drum. Get more mileage out of your kit by converting your 16" floor tom into a bass drum. This kit comes with spurs that fit in your existing floor tom's leg brackets (fits brackets with standard 3/8" diameter legs) and height-lift with post that secures to your tom mount bracket. There are no holes to drill. You will also need an ISS type mount with 7/8" tom post receiving bracket.

Here are the correct Pearl parts needed for Pearl drums to complete the floor tom to bass drum conversion:
For 16" Export Series Floor Toms and Session Series Floor Toms (1995/1996),
you will need 447934 - PEARL IS1216N ISS MOUNT, plus 447961 - PEARL BT-3 TOM
MOUNT.

For 16" Session Series Floor Toms (1997 - present) or 16" Master SeriesFloor Toms (1997/1998), you will need 447939 - PEARL IS1216SL ISS MOUNT,
plus 447961 - PEARL BT-3 TOM MOUNT

For a 16" Masters Series Floor tom (1999 to present), you will only need
448755 - PEARL OPTIMOUNT TOM MOUNTING SYSTEM 15 TO 16".


Get hip to the new style without buying a new tom or ruining your present one. Order the kit today.

I mainly play Jazz, so I found myself in a lot of smaller venues. Mainly coffee shops, small stages, corners of stores, etc. so bringing a whole drum kit wasn't working out for me. I needed a small kit, so I looked into purchasing junior kits and even that Manu Katche kit until I found this. I ordered and it has worked out perfectly. I used one of my old 16x16 floor toms (from my first Pulse drum kit) and although the tom hoop wasn't a perfect fit, replacing it with a CB drums hoop fit it perfectly. Next I went and purchased a Gibraltar Dunnett Rail Tom Mount, Gibraltar Bass Drum Mounted Cymbal Arm for a nice retro look, a 10x7 tom and 12x12 floor tom and wah la, a small drum kit, actually even smaller than the Manu kit. Now there's no where that my drum kit can't be, I can fit into almost any corner. I would suggest though that if you do attach a cymbal arm to your bass drum like I did, you get real bass drum spurs because the weight of a 20 in (i ended up downgraded to a 16in) ride cymbal, well those legs that fit in the floor tom can't handle that kind of weight.

I'm a grown-up, so I should have read the entire description. My bad. I realized this system lacked a way to attach the the pedal bracket to the drum, instead requiring the user have or obtain an ISO mount to insert a 7/8" post into. I wanted to be able to use the tom with my regular kit without an addition piece of hardware permanently mounted to it. I managed to solve the problem with a plank of plywood with a 7/8 hole in it cut to fit between the rims and the lugs, but it would have been better if Pearl had worked out a way to clamp the pedal bracket to the drum rim. Then it truly would work with any tom (as long as the legs fit, that is!).

        Bought a cheapo set of shells. Converted the floor Tom and used the 12" Tom on a snare stand. Removed the mount from the 12" Tom and installed into the Floor Tom to be used with this conversion kit...happened to fit perfectly. Attached the 13" to the Ride cymbal stand to be used as floor Tom.
        Great for gigging at small venues...

            Bought a 16" PDP M5 tobacco burst finish floor tom and installed this conversion kit along with a Gibraltor pedal. Works great and I get a lot of comments on how cool this set up looks. I perform in an acoustic duo playing acoustic bass and use this "mini" bass drum set up to add some bottom end beats. Easy to transport and fun to play.

              Bought this to "break down" the set a little for smaller venues and some acoustic sets. I'm going through different heads and still haven't come across what I want to use as a batter head, but over all a great buy!

                Does not fit all floor toms! Beware, and check sizing of your existing legs! The Tom legs that come with this kit are not particularly heavy duty. Do your homework first.

                  Make sure you check the size of your floor Tom legs prior to purchase. The legs with the jungle jig were too small for my Pearl floor Tom.

                  If you need to play gigs where space is limited, the volume needs to be at a minimum or you want a setup that will fit in a smaller vehicle, this might be just the thing for you. I actually made my own hip-gig/jungle kit using this as a foundation.
                  Just keep in mind that you'll need the Pearl ISS mount and the BT-3 tom mounting bracket to make it all work.

                  Great Product

                  Comments about Pearl JG16 Jungle Jig floor tom to Bass Drum converter Kit:

                  I would buy this again. I have had a blast converting my tom to a "jungle" bass. Great when you want to gig with a small subset of your entire kit. One thing, you will also need to have a tom mount; I just "borrow" a tom mount from another part of my kit; if you are converting a suspended 14" or 16" tom (that is, it does not rest on 3 legs but rather uses a tom mount like most smaller toms), of course, you will be good to go.

                  BTW, you can find new & used tom mounts cheap on eBay if you don't otherwise have one. (Sorry MF. :-)
                  Design details well thought-out.
                  Built like a tank. Will last forever.
                  Perfect product... turns your floor tom into a righteous small bass drum; that makes it valuable to me.

                  Comments about Pearl JG16 Jungle Jig floor tom to Bass Drum converter Kit:

                  Everything does as it says
                  I bought this to convert an old pearl export tom to a bass drum. It did the trick perfectly. This is a great device for putting together a parts kit from ebay. Although I had to remove the memory lock to get the right angle for the drum to the pedal. If you were to buy another ISS mount for the other hoop and mounted it on the top, you could easily mount a rack tom. This is a great idea and Im surprised more people don't use a tiny bass drum/floor tom
                  Perfect Pearl quality. Everything is very well machined
                  Can't beat 30 bucks to make a little bass drum
