OVERVIEW

Clamp percussion instruments to the hoop of your bass drum.

This DW Claw Hook Clamp is designed to simply, yet dependably, clamp onto both sides of the hoop of your bass drum. This places percussion instruments in a location that is both accessible and out-of-the-way without fear of slippage.

Attach a cowbell, block, or other percussion instrument to the clamp via DW's patented V-Clamp which features memory lock, so it's easy to repeat you favorite setup. Included is a 1/2"-diameter L-arm but the V-Clamp can accommodate a variety of arm diameters.

doesn't work with Yamaha hoop

      Comments about DW Claw Hook Clamp:

      I was very excited to get this clamp to use a Black Beauty cowbell on my kick drum. I have been using that cowbell for decades with an old fashioned Ludwig hoop clamp mount and it's always worked fine. But that clamp digs in to the hoop and leaves a mark/dent. I have a mint condition Yamaha Birch Custom Absolute kit in vintage finish and simply didn't want to mark up the hoop with a clamp for the occasional special gig I take it to. The bad news is that the DW claw is not large enough for a 3/8" + thickness hoop, which the Yamaha is. This renders the clamp useless until I can find a claw that will hopefully make it work. I was really surprised no one mentioned this in any of their reviews. Other than that, the clamp is nicely built and super heavy duty and heavy weight like most DW hardware.

        Comments about DW Claw Hook Clamp:

        I've been mounting cowbells and woodblocks to bass drums since the 80's. I bought this to replace a more expensive Pearl unit that stripped out after many years of hard gigging. This is by far the best bass drum L-rod mount I've ever used. Perfect. Plus it does not interfere with tuning at all, and by just removing the L-rod rod I can keep the mount attached to the drum and it fits in the case fine. It doesn't get better than this.

        Comments about DW Claw Hook Clamp:

        For years I used a LP bass drum cowbell holder but recently the wing nut underneath the mount started to hit my Evans Emad and Remo Powerstroke Pro drum head muffle rings. This DW mount gets a better grip and does not interfere with the muffle rings. I am very happy with it. I do want to point out that this clamp will not work on timbales though.

            Heavy duty as you would expect from DW. Clamps on to bass drum with tuning key. Solid when in place. Height and depth adjustment is approximately 3 inches both ways.

            Durable

            By Jeff-GYhYW

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about DW Claw Hook Clamp:

            It's heavy and durable clamp. You can beat a cowbell on it for weeks and this thing won't fail.

            I've actually paid more money for an Pearl kick drum clamp that is secured by pinching the kick drum rim. Most clamps are fasted this way, and if you hit the cowbell hard enough, the whole thing will fall off. That is near impossible with this clamp.

            The only complaint I see other people having is that it is heavy. I personally could care less, because the heavier gear ususally lasts the longest.

            The best cowbell holder I have ever used.

            Comments about DW Claw Hook Clamp:

            I have tried many cowbell mounts over the years, and they have all left me wanting more..... until now. This DW mount is solid as a rock. I never worry about a cowbell moving/slipping during a performance any more. I dont leave home without it.

            NICE MOUNT

            By DRUMMER

            from EAST COAST

            Comments about DW Claw Hook Clamp:

            This mount holds tight and is as solid as a rock. There is less of an opportunity for hoop damage with it's "front and back" side of rear hoop design. That said, I prefer using the LP CLAW mounted off the rim mount of my floor tom. Reason being, while bass drum cowbell mounts offer the most in terms of accesibility (with both hands)it has a muting affect on the bell itself. Mounted off of a floor tom rim, the bell is able to vibrate freely and at maximum volume. With kick drums, particularly 24", the sound travels right though the bell downward, through the drum. Rock solid and does what it says but just isn't as musical compared to being mounted elsewhere. Able to get VERY close to perfect positioning with the LP CLAW and it's more musical. If you like your snare drum cranked and choked so tight that it feels like cement under your sticks then this mount is for you. I like "give" in my instruments, while still obtaining rock solid construction. Good product, it's just the nature of the beast.
