Ludwig Breakbeats (by Questlove) Tom Memory Lock Clamp Adapter
by hewsonchen, published
So you were one of the first to snag one of those awesome tiny Ludwig Breakbeats (by Questlove) drumkits (see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44GYiw1VsKc ), only to realize that in their rush to zoom the things out post-NAMM, the initial runs apparently include a tom memory lock clamp that doesn't actually fit the 7x10" tom. (the clamp nub is ~2 mm too wide for its receptacle in the tom).
now you may be asking - this isn't a big deal, the clamp still lets you remember how far down on the post to mount the tom - true, but i felt a little leery about the non-fitting clamp nub wearing away at some non-comformant surface on the tom over time (what with all the vibration of drumming).
No worries! This here is a little adapter that will fit both the memory clamp's nub and the tom's indent, giving both ample seating area to try and avoid undue wear...
if you are workin' with the stl file, import that thing scaled to mm! overall dimensions should be X:40mm, Y:25mm and Z:10mm
layer heights don't have to be that small, but since this thing will have to stand up to some degree of abuse (if you are a gigging drummer and always setting up in a hurry), you may want to try medium settings, 1 shell, 100% fill, which is what i used on my rep2. i bet the weak point, over time, will be the little nub on top.
the top side with the round indent and the nub sticking out is the "tom" side, and the bottom side is the "memory clamp" side.
