Tama's motto is "the strongest name in drums" this is completely true. This bass drum mounting bracket will hold your centre post completely rock solid. The tightening bolt has a strong feel to it and gives you a confident assurance that everything will remain where it supposed to when you start playing. If you are applying this bracket to a bass drum you will have to, of course, drill your own holes but this is easy enough and you can use the butt plate as a template to do this. The chrome work is excellent and is of top quality and will remain so for years. Some brands of chromed hardware is prone to eventually flaking or pitting. But Tama simply does not do this in my experience. I've been playing Tama equipment for 25 years.
