Give your toms full, resonant projection.

The Optimount attaches to the tom's tension rods and floats on rubber cushions, providing ultimate stability while allowing the drum to resonate fully and freely. With Optimount, the mounting hardware is completely removed from the drum shell providing a drastic improvement
in resonance and sustain. Choose to fit your size tom.

      I bought a set of these for my toms which had the mounts attached directly to the shells. Don't ever buy drums with the mounts on the shells, it kills the resonance. Anyway, these were a big improvement over what I had. I then tried out the RIMS style mounts, and was very impressed! The Optimounts still keeps the shell from resonating to its full extent. I like my toms to sing out. If you prefer a more dead sound, then you'd probably like these, if not look for RIMS.

          Comments about Pearl Optimount Tom Mounting System:

          I've used these mounts with all kinds of different drums. The connection is much more solid than a RIMS type mount. It also allows you to have two toms very close together (which RIMS style mounts do not allow). Highly recommended.

          Depth and Diameter!

          By Nicholi

          from Tulsa

          Comments about Pearl Optimount Tom Mounting System:

          I order the appropriate size to replace the ISS mount on a 14" tom I have. Depth wise the measurement was perfect. However, the mount did not extend out far enough to reach the tension rods. Given the diameter of the drum, the lugs were too far apart for this mount to reach. Now its back in the box and of no use to me.

            Comments about Pearl Optimount Tom Mounting System:

            This is a good system, I would suggest this or RIMS style mounts, but these are more stable and don't take up as much space. Be forewarned that Pearl DOES NOT make an Optimount that fits a 6 lug 14" tom, only 8 lugs. If you want to try to get it to fit, you need to actually lay the unit on a concrete floor with carpet on it and press it a little until it literally bends far enough apart to make it fit (about a 1/2" extra) and that will work. If you don't want to do this, you can hack off the ends and have new, longer ones wielded on yourself, or just get a different tom mount that actually fits. Also look for the GK-90 masking plates if you're removing the old BT-3 bracket from a tom, this will cover up the holes. And the Optimounts come with BT-3's, so you'll be paying for something you already have but you could try to sell the old ones. Hope this helps!

              Comments about Pearl Optimount Tom Mounting System:

              Pearl Optimount: As others have pointed out the measurments refer to the depth of your drum instead of the diameter. I like the way it holds the drum away from the mount arm, I have the traditional 4 lug top suspension on my other kit and I have to make sure it doesn't touch the arm during use.

              Pearl Optimount

              By Jacob Williamson

              from Newnan, GA

              Comments about Pearl Optimount Tom Mounting System:

              I think overall this is a good solution for drummers not wanting to spend the equivalent of purchasing new drums. This mounting system serves its purpose and is a good value. I cannot speak to the change in sound or resonance yet. I purchased these foremost to replace the previously worn out hardware on my mounted toms. The only issue I had was mis-interpreting the sizing for the mount. My experience with drum sizes have always been with diameter sizes(12", 13" mounted toms) Unfortunately it turned out that the Pearl Optimount system uses the drum depth? Weird in my opinion. Once I figured this out however, Musicians Friend was very reasonable in doing an exchange for the size I really needed. I have Mapex 12" and 13" diameter mounted toms that I purchased a optimount for and they worked well. 12" takes a 10-11" optimount and 13" takes a 12-13" optimount.

              Excellent Mounting System

              By W W Higgins

              from Willowbrook, IL

              Comments about Pearl Optimount Tom Mounting System:

              Delivery was quick and easy as always with Musician's Friend. This is the best place to buy any kind of drum equipment, hands down.
              I purchased these mounts to upgrade my vintage 1980's Pearl MLX kit. The mounts fit and look great. Not much change in the tonal quality of the drums but I didn't expect much since the tom lugs extend the entire length of the drum. The mounts do not touch the shell at all so if you have minimum contact lugs I'm sure the mounts would have quite an impact on the sound of the drum. On my set the hole in the new mount does not match up with the existing hole in the drum from the old mount. You're also left with small bolt holes in the drum shell (from the old mount). The new mount pretty much hides the holes from the outside. If you have clear heads and seeing the holes in the drum from the inside bothers you I'm sure you can find some plastic plugs at a hardware store to put in the large hole and the bolt holes to hide them.
              Very sturdy and finish looks high quality. You'll like they way they look.
              A bit expensive but worth the one time investment to upgrade a kit that I'll be using for years to come. If you're upgrading to sell your drums don't waste your money. Adding these won't increase the value of your set enough to recoup your investment.

              Please realize that the measurements given are NOT the drums diameter they are for the drums DEPTH!Great product! I recommend pairing with Pearl's gyro-lock tom mounts so you can position the toms anyway you want them.
