Log Drum Mounting Systems

As complete acoustic bodies and resonating chambers, Ron Vaughn Log Drums are very sensitive to what they rest on when they are played.  How the drum ‘rests’, or simply, what surface you put them on when playing them, makes an enormous difference in what you ultimately hear from the drums and how they ‘sing’.

Ron Vaughn Log Drums produce very rich, deep, mellow, robust tones when properly mounted for performance.  That said, you can either use Ron Vaughn log drum mounting systems, or mimic them the best you can with your own setup to achieve the very best sound from them.

Where you place these mounts beneath any of Ron’s S.A.T.B. drums are nodal points, so experimenting with their exact position in your own unique setup is important.

Log Drum FlexMount Components:

Choose either ‘level’ or ‘angled’ foam blocks, depending on the surface angle you want when playing your drums.
