The Ludwig A.T.L.A.S. (or Aerial Tom Lug Attached Suspension) Mount creates a mounting location anywhere on a drum, NO DRILLING REQUIRED. It simply attaches to the shell by replacing a lug (fits 25mm to 43mm holes spacing- including Ludwig Small & Large Classic, and Keystone Lugs).
The Suspension is IN the mount!
The 12.7mm clamp on the Ludwig A.T.L.A.S. Mount is isolated from shell contact by two hardened steel pins, floating on elastomer mounts over the integrated tension lug.
The Proof is in the Sound!
Unlike traditional isolation systems that mount the drum around the tension rods, the Ludwig A.T.L.A.S. mount effectively separates the isolation system from the drum; allowing the drum to resonate as an independent unit. The result is a smoother decay, longer sustain, and increased resonance. The sustain plots (shown here) clearly show the effect.
Increased Set-Up Flexibility
Auxiliary cymbal arms, accessories, and floor tom legs are positioned with ease and totally isolated from the shell. Enlarge your set-up by integrating the Ludwig A.T.L.A.S. mount with additional Atlas Tom and Cymbal holders.
