This is a very sturdy and high quality product. I bought it to fit on my Vintage Ludwig Kit but found that the 9.5mm legs/hardware on my old kit are too small to tighten up. I purchased a Gibraltar ball mount for Cymbal stand and the was 10.5 mm but the bracket was still loose. Luckily I have bought the Atlas Mount for Tom Tom and this had a plastic sleeve in which I adopted and it now fastens perfectly. This is a great item despite this and allows my Ride Cymbal to be perfect between Toms on 3 Shell Kit. Ludwig please put the sleeves with it!!
