Calling all Crimson Mesh owners...
Is it just me or is the snare stand not quite as tall as one might expect? I guess it's just a regular snare stand but when most acoustic snares are about 5" or 6" deep, the playing surface is a lot higher, but I'm finding it sits a bit lower than I'd like with the 12" Crimson snare pad installed. I'm only 5' 6" but I find that to get the snare height right for me, I'm having to lower my stool to a point where that then feels uncomfortable. I've kinda got it someway in between but it still bugs me. I guess the only solution is to buy a snare stand that has a taller reach. Right now, I have the supplied stand set at the tallest possible setting and the legs set so that it gives an extra lift without becoming unstable.
Secondly, how are you guys attaching the toms to the rack on the L pegs? I really wanted to try setting the angle of the surface flatter, so I began trying different ways of having the L peg clamped on the frame. I tried it with the peg coming from the front and rear, from the top and up from the bottom and found that in virtually all configurations, the wing nut that clamps the pad to the peg gets obstructed by the frame clamp. I finally found something that kinda worked, but it feels like a compromise.
I'm guessing that at the Crimson's price point, the hardware isn't going to be of a Gibraltar standard.
Just curious to hear other Crimson user's thoughts.
